10-31-15 – Drunkeness


Ephesians 5:18 (KJV) – And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled with the Spirit;


We should not lose control of our bodies. Using drugs to get drunk or lose our minds is a sin. The Bible explains this clearly in many places. Being drunk presents a danger to others and ourselves.

Proverbs 25:16 (NASB) – Have you found honey? Eat only what you need,
That you not have it in excess and vomit it.

We should not get drunk on caffeine, alcohol or sugar. Any drug or food in excess is wrong. We need to have the strength to say “no” to any temptation to “overdo it”.

1 Peter 5:8-9 (NKJV) – 8 Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour. 9 Resist him, steadfast in the faith, knowing that the same sufferings are experienced by your brotherhood in the world.
