Wine Lovers Please Take A Seat. Thank you 馃榾.


The apostle Paul didn't say [b]"don't drink"[/b] but rather don't get drunk. Does that mean I can have one glass of wine and be tipsy and call it a day 馃槄?

I quit alcohol 8 years ago just saying. I'm just curious that's all.

I know alcohol is sometimes called spirits.
So I guess if your drunk you are filled with the spirit? 馃

@Adrift He didn't say [i][b]spirits[/b][/i] but rather [b]spirit 馃き.[/b]

@Thandeka How come when you go out and get filled with the spirit, you wake up with the devils breath?
Thandeka31-35, F
@Adrift Because it's an unclean spirit 馃槀.
He is saying that you need to get high on God, and the Holy Spirit. He is saying don't get drunk.

JESUS said, "Take a little wine for the good of thy stomach."

IMO, it's okay to sip on a small glass of wine, unless your religion forbids it, but after that, you should shut yourself off.
@Matt85 My brother told me it was Jesus...but you are probably right. He used to make his own wine, and would get so drunk he would lean sideways on his chair and fall off...馃ぃ馃ぃ馃ぃ I am quite sure he would have blamed Jesus for it...馃ぃ馃ぃ馃ぃ. (Maybe not...JK!!!).

@Matt85 I don't think Timothy was his biological son. Perhaps his spiritual son.
Matt8536-40, M
@Thandeka Yeah. I did look it up eventually (cause who needs stress) and that does seem to be the case.
One glass is fine . Relax and enjoy 馃嵎馃槉
Yes of course. I do not like red wine at all myself.
I think the wine represents blood thus the life of Jesus.
But if you drink too much wine, you open yourself to "spirits" and negative influences out there.

I 'lost' the desire to drink alcohol 20 yrs ago so would encourage you to not even dasbble with a glass if you're predisposed to addiction
Thandeka31-35, F
@mainvane Oh no I was never addicted. I only did it because everyone was doing it. When it hit me I stopped 馃槉.

Na Zdrowie!馃嵎And enjoy a glass.
Thandeka31-35, F
@SageWanderer I'll go google then. Are you Polish yourself?
SageWanderer70-79, M
@Thandeka I鈥檓 actually Hungarian and Irish but my wife is 100% Polish.
Thandeka31-35, F
@SageWanderer Oh that's wonderful.

Depends on why you quit. If you were concerned about not being [b]able[/b] to stop then don鈥檛 pick it up again.
Thandeka31-35, F
@bijouxbroussard I didn't struggle to quit. It was a decision I made while we were traveling for the Christmas holidays with my family for a week. The first day I drank but the second day I was like [b][c=800055]I quit.[/c][/b]They thought I was joking 馃槀.
