...have you ever heard a sermon on drunkenness, lasciviousness, or private interpretation of the scriptures?
I don't care if you don't like my abrasive delivery or terse commentary on "getting high", numbing one's conscience, or quenching the Holy Spirit...what preacher would? It's God's opinion that matters, not mine, not yours!
I know who would cave to public opinion, the sissy-britches money-serving bums who are false teachers, NOT SAVED, who serve not the Lord Jesus Christ, but their own bellies...the one's responsible for destroying western civilization as we know it with their Bible perversion translations, and their tacit approval of abortion and homosexuality!
I've taken my stand; and I don't believe the man who knew no sin cast a stumblingblock at the wedding by making a fermented beverage as loosely as people want to believe it was, as it is today. No, you certainly couldn't just go to the Jordan river and take a drink; it most likely was a grape juice with properties that could cause intoxication...but...after 22 glasses or so!
Wine is a mocker, and strong drink is raging the Bible says...I put "getting high" on par with getting drunk...and I don't care if anyone doesn't share my opinion...I would recommend total abstinence from drugs and alcohol to the BELIEVER; and if they caught me getting drunk or high, while in a trusted capacity as a Bible teacher in a formal/organized setting; I would step down immediately and accept church discipline!!!
