“Do not suppose that abuses are eliminated by destroying the object which is abused. Men can go wrong with wine and women. Shall we then prohibit and abolish women? The sun, the moon, and the stars have been worshiped. Shall we then pluck them out of the sky? …see how much he [God] has been able to accomplish through me, though I did no more than pray and preach. The Word did it all. Had I wished I might have started a conflagration at Worms. But while I sat still and drank beer with Philip and Amsdorf, God dealt the papacy a mighty blow.” Martin Luther
Does the Bible condemn the consumption of alcoholic beverages? or does it allow for them with warnings against abuse?
In this four part docu-lecture, Dr. Ken Gentry presents the whole counsel of God in regards to this subject. He takes on the passages often used of prohibitionists and allows God’s word to speak in its context.
He deals with the original languages, warnings and even exhortations to celebrate with alcoholic beverages. This session is to help encourage those weaker in the faith to become strong and not think the kingdom of God is eating and drinking.
Christian liberty and growth are at the heart of Dr. Gentry’s lectures. If we lose one, we will inevitably lose the other.
