Timothy Wayne George's comment on 2013-05-19 15:32:20:
Wine is a mocker, and strong drink intoxicating. Who ever is deceived by it is not wise. We are at liberty in Christ, yet we must not use our liberty as a stumbling stone for those who are recovering alcoholics. No one will become a alcoholic, if he or she does not take that first drink. It is better to refuse a drink, if it causes someone to stumble. As we celebrate life time accomplishments, let us remember the weaker brother or sister who looks to us to set an example how to live soberly, and righteously in this present world.
