Do you think that Jesus would have a blog? Why or Why not?

Would Jesus Have a Beer With Me?

June 17, 2008 at 9:47 pm (Uncategorized) (, , , , , )

I’d like to have an open and honest dialogue with you about Christians and alcohol.

I grew up in a church that said that Christians don’t drink. This was confusing to me because there are many passages in the bible that show Jesus drinking (not to mention that Jesus’ first miracle was turning water into wine at a party).

On the day of Pentecost, people thought that the Christians were drunk. But Peter explained to the crowd that it was too early for them to be drinking. He didn’t say that these were Christians who don’t drink. He just told the crowd that they don’t drink this early in the morning.

As a child, I often wondered why we drank grape juice instead of wine at the Lord’s Supper.

I could go on, but you get the picture.

We confuse drinking with getting drunk.

Really, it’s American Christians that have this problem.

My wife’s home church in Germany had six kegs at one of there church parties. They weren’t getting plastered. They were just having fun at a church function.

I don’t understand why it can’t be the same here. I don’t understand why people in the church would get mad at me for having a drink with some friends. I don’t understand why it matters.

I’d love to hear some other thoughts on the subject.
