[Must read] The truth of the matter about Alcohol

Alcohol has been a part of rituals, celebrations and medicine from olden days. If Alcohol has brought much joy to man, it has also brought much sorrowing and suffering especially to victims of rape (68% of victims asked in a very wide poll by this author for another work said the rapists had alcohol smell in their breath).
Types of wine

Alcohol has also brought much suffering to victims of drunk drivers, wives, husband and children of people who drink heavily. A little alcohol now and then may do no harm, but much often, unwary drinkers fall into its powerful grip and a little leads to a lot. It is a colorless liquid that can cause drunkenness.

Alcohol beverages contain ethyl Alcohol which is depressant and a drug that slows down the work of the nervous system. As a depressant, Alcohol slows down various brain functions.

Even though alcohol provides calories that the body can use for energy, pure alcohol does not belong to any of the four basic food groups because it contains no nutrients. Most beer has about 4% alcohol, wine usually has between 12% and 14%. Wines like sherry and Vermouth have more than 12% and 14% alcohol. They are called fortified wine.

Alcohol comes from two Arabic words “el gohoul” meaning “The great evil spirit.” Scripture calls it “a woe, a mocker, a defiler” etc. how then can anyone make a case in favour of alcohol?
The case against Alcohol and Alcoholism cannot be defended with any “logical conclusion”  in favour of it. Alcohol is dangerous to health and we will do well to keep off it.
The bible has no complimentary statements in favour of alcohol but calls it by many negative names: a mocker:
“wine is a mocker and beer a brawler; whoever is led astray by them is not wise” (Proverb 20:1).

-Woe: “Woe to those who rise early in the morning to run after their drinks, who stay up late at wine night till they are inflamed with wine” “Woe to those who are heroes at drinking wine and champions at mixing drinks” I didn’t say this myself it is stated in Holy bible (Isaiah 5:11 and 22).
Proverbs 23:29, 35, exposes the disgraceful effects of Alcohol:
“who has Woe? Who has sorrow? Who has blood shot eyes? Those who linger over wine, who go to sample bowls of mixed wine…. Do not gaze at wine when it is red…when it goes down smoothly! In the end it bites like a snake and poisons like a viper. Your eye will see strange sights and your mind imagine confusing things.”
Lastly, even though the list of uncomplimentary statements about alcohol is inexhaustible in this work, we are told that it defiles in Daniel 1:8.
  “ but Daniel resolved not to defile himself with royal food and wine….”
We are warned not to use  wine to copy the place where the Holy Spirit dwells in Ephesians 5:18.
Do not get drunk on wine, which leads to debauchery. Instead be filled with the spirit.”
The overseer is commanded not to given too much. That Christians would make a case in favour of alcohol based on 1Timothy 5:23 was the one great shock I received as a new convert.

Dear reader, when you put all the woes and negative statements about alcohol on a mortal evaluation scale alongside the perceived positive in 1Tim. 5:23, judge for yourselves, in kilogrammes, which weighs more?

The Bible admonishes in Philippians 4:8 …”whatever is lovely…admirable…excellent or praise worthy think about such things.”
If Alcohol is the “great evil spirit,’ then it is w was an evil spirit which took possession of men who consumed it. The result was that there were no longer their own masters. “…it bites like a snake… your eyes will see strange sights and your mind imagine confusing things, “Proverbs 23:23 affirms.

If therefore alcohol were admirable, so many negative and uncomplimentary statements would not be made about it in the pages of scripture!
Is Alcohol a lovely, admirable, excellent, praise-worthy thing to think upon? Judge for yourselves, for I rest my case.
