Transcript

  • 1.  
  • 2. Is DRINKING a Sin?
    • Answer: ?
  • 3. Is DRINKING a Sin?
    • Answer: No … ( let’s not be legalistic )
  • 4.
    • “ Everything is permissible for me”—but not everything is beneficial . “Everything is permissible for me”—but I will not be mastered by anything .
        • (1 Corinthians 6:12)
    • (… get used to seeing this  )
  • 5.
    • For the record, consumption is not a sin ( assuming the motive is not sinful )
    • Addiction is a sin (1 Corinthians 6:12)
    • Note: Denial of the addiction does not pardon it
  • 6.
    • Addiction
      • To be controlled by , enslaved to , or compelled to engage in a particular habit or practice
    • Addiction implies making a substance one’s “god.” We know doing so is sinful.
      • (Exodus 20:3; Matthew 6:24)
  • 7. Is DRINKING a Sin?
    • “ Drinking ” (as in consuming alcohol)
    • is NOT a sin
      • (…if you are of legal age)
  • 8. Is DRINKING a Sin?
    • The Bible does discourage much drinking
      • (Titus 2:3; 1 Timothy 3:8)
  • 9. Is DRINKING a Sin?
    • But there’s nothing wrong with moderate drinking , like drinking a bit of wine for illnesses
      • (1 Timothy 5:23)
  • 10. Is DRINKING a Sin?
    • While “ drinking ” is not a sin, getting “ drunk ” is a sin (Romans 13:13)
  • 11. Is DRINKING a Sin?
    • Drunkards won’t go to Heaven without repenting
      • (1 Corinthians 6:9-11; Ephesians 5:18; etc.)
      • and envy; drunkenness , orgies, and the like. I warn you, as I did before, that those who live like this will not inherit the kingdom of God.
        • (Galatians 5:21)
  • 12. Is DRINKING a Sin?
    • Though the Bible tends to portray drinkers negatively
      • (Proverbs 20:1; 31:6; Isaiah 56:11-12; Micah 2:11)
    • … and non-drinkers positively
      • (Proverbs 31:4)
    • it is NOT A SIN to drink modestly
  • 13. Is DRINKING a Sin?
    • But keep in mind:
      • We don’t want to give Satan a foothold
        • (Ephesians 4:27)
      • or be unaware of his schemes
        • (2 Corinthians 2:11)
  • 14.
    • Satan has tricked many into drinking ( just once ) before binding them with addiction , disease , and/or death .
    • ( This applies for smoking , malicious drug use , etc. as well )
  • 15. Is DRINKING a Sin?
    • That’s why I say, not God , that if you have not started drinking it’s best you don’t start
    • ( You won’t have to worry about having too much if you don’t have any at all )
  • 16. Is DRINKING a Sin?
    • While casual drinking is permissible it is not generally beneficial
      • But let the Holy Spirit convict you, not me 
  • 17. Is DRINKING a Sin?
    • If you do chose to drink (modestly) don’t let anyone condemn you
      • (Colossians 2:16)
  • 18.
    • But remember the point of Romans 14:21 :
    • Don’t drink things around people that may cause them to stumble !
    • … ( excuse the pun  )
    • Note: This applies to food, etc. as well.
  • 19. Is SMOKING a Sin?
    • Answer: ?
  • 20. Is SMOKING a Sin?
    • Answer: There are strong biblical cases for YES & NO
    • … but I lean toward NO
      • WHY ?
  • 21.
    • “ Everything is permissible for me”—but not everything is beneficial. “Everything is permissible for me”—but I will not be mastered by anything.
        • (1 Corinthians 6:12)
  • 22. Is SMOKING a Sin?
    • Puffing a cigarette, cigar, or other LEGAL smoke may be permissible, but it is widely not beneficial
  • 23. Is SMOKING a Sin?
    • Sorry marijuana enthusiasts … because smoking pot is illegal it is a sin 
    • … in most states at least 
  • 24. Is SMOKING a Sin?
    • Nevertheless, if one’s motive for puffing is somehow not sinful
      • (e.g. legal medical treatment, etc.)
    • then technically it is permissible
  • 25. Is SMOKING a Sin?
    • However… If one smokes to :
      • get a physical fix (satisfy an addiction )
      • break rules of reigning authorities
      • etc.
      • it is a sin
      • Remember: Once one is addicted ( mastered by the substance ) he or she scores a touchdown in the sin -zone.
      • ( ** shrug ** Well, it sounded clever in my head  )
  • 26. Is SMOKING a Sin?
    • Again, just because something is permissible does not mean it should be done.

  • 32. Is it a Sin to do Drugs?
    • Is it a sin to do prescription or over the counter drugs ?
      • Answer: Depends on the motive
  • 33. Is it a Sin to do Drugs?
    • It’s ok to do (prescription) drugs when:
      • You need medical treatment
      • Etc.
    • ( Basically ok if there’s no sinful motive or action )
  • 34. Is it a Sin to do Drugs?
    • It’s a sin to do (prescription) drugs when:
      • It’s not your prescription
      • You take drugs to get high
      • You want to harm yourself
      • Etc.
    • ( Basically wrong if there’s a sinful motive or action )
  • 35.
    • Getting drunk or high ( from smoking, drugs, or other ) is a sin
      • “ Drunk” or “high” means you are “under the influence” aka mastered by the substance
        • And remember, we should not be “mastered” by anything
        • (1 Corinthians 6:12)
  • 36.
    • Everything is technically permissible , (pending on motive) but whether:
      • smoke
      • drink
      • drug
      • chocolate
      • etc.
    • don’t let anything master you!
  • 37.
