Wine is a Mocker

Nothing carries with it more strong emotions than the topic of alcohol.  At one time this nation banned its sale and consumption at a Constitutional level, before changing its mind.

This was in part due to the strong evangelistic teaching of the time that linked drinking alcohol to Satan himself, and still today many congregations have alcohol prohibitions in their membership documents.

As for the country, there’s a prohibition on when you can start drinking (that many find ways around), and so the jury is still out as to the morality of alcohol.

God sees all things, whether or not we think that anyone knows what we’re doing. I was reminded of this in a message I heard this past Wednesday regarding do we fear the Lord like we should. This week’s cheerleading scandal makes my point.

These two women decided that they were going to try to do something private in the restroom of a bar. Unfortunately for them, it didn’t stay private. Bar patrons wanted to get into the restroom, and soon the police were informed. There was serious repercussions to to their actions. The funny thing is, it wasn’t enough to just say who they were, one of them lied about their identity.
