Pretty harmless huh? Well, you wouldn't believe the firestorm it created. I won't get into the specifics of it, but a little bit of a debate resulted from it. My wife not wanting the post to turn into a debate on the sinfulness (or lack there of) of alcohol did the wise thing and removed the discussion from the post in order to let it remain about it's intent, which was simple recap of our weekend in Statesboro for one our best friend's 30th B-day.
I however am not that wise. So for this reason I have dusted off the ole "Inner thoughts" to pose this question: On the subject of alcohol, "What would Jesus Do?"
I think there are two schools of thought here in the Christian world, Frankly I have been in both camps at one point or another.
1.) The T-Totalers, that basically believe you should not, under ANY circumstance drink alcohol. Many good reasons for this are in the vein of not wanting to make your brother stumble. For some reason drinking alcohol ranks higher on the sin Richter scale than maybe some "lesser" sins in their eyes.
2.) The moderators, they believe that all things in moderation are OK. There's that verse that says for everything there is a season. Mostly they use the excuse: "Jesus turned water into wine, so it must not be too bad."
3.) (OK I lied there are 3 schools of thought) The gracies. These people believe I am saved by grace, so I can do what I want.
So, who's right? I'll reserve my opinion for later. I'll let y'all discuss it for now. That is if any of you have made it back from the bar and are just drunk enough to respond. (But only if you are Episcopalian or Presbyterian. If you are Baptist, we certainly know there has been no drinking done, at least that you would admit to.)
