And I donāt want to stir the pot, but itās there in the O.T. And I can show you it in the NT, I can show you what the apostles taught about the issue, and I can show you where Jesus have people wine to drink.
The question is, do you want to have a serious conversation about the issue? I donāt know you, nor your motivation for asking the question, Iām glad you want the answer to be from scripture, but do you sincerely want to know?
@Me from World, why limit it to Jesus? Letās take a gander at the OT
Genesis 14:18 KJV  And Melchizedek king of Salem brought forth bread and wine: and he was the priest of the most high God.
Numbers 6:20 KJV  And the priest shall wave them for a wave offering before the Lord : this is holy for the priest, with the wave breast and heave shoulder: and after that the Nazarite may drink wine.
Deuteronomy 11:14 KJV  That I will give you the rain of your land in his due season, the first rain and the latter rain, that thou mayest gather in thy corn, and thy wine, and thine oil.
1 Samuel 16:20 KJV  And Jesse took an ass laden with bread, and a bottle of wine, and a kid, and sent them by David his son unto Saul.
Joel 2:19 KJV  Yea, the Lord will answer and say unto his people, Behold, I will send you corn, and wine, and oil, and ye shall be satisfied therewith...
Iām not saying that Trump has the salvation nor moral life of the apostles, I think a lot of people are fed up with the Democrats & their āsolutionsā that they certainly wouldnāt vote for Hillary.
You seem to always go after Trump, but why donāt you go after Hillary & the Democrats that want to force people to support abortion, homosexuality, transgenderism, sex education, white racism, etc.
Donāt you realize that the left what to usher totalitarianism? Donāt you realize that in order to do that they must silence Christians? Have you taken a gander at Canada?
Oy vey Jim, Iām sick & tired of you trying to make everything about politics, even doing so over articles that mention someoneās death.
And no one can try to reason with you because you lack the ability to have a rational conversation.
Why in the world is everyone making race a huge issue, apparently itās moral value to be a racist towards white people, Jim your cute little article is nothing but hot air,
I would be shocked if the author supports abortion because abortion has racial roots. When more black babies are being slaughtered than white babies. Oh what hypocrisy.
I have found Christians who have condemned torture, so it looks like the author is a poor researcher, maybe he couldāve called the following people:
Jonny Mac Albert Molher Derek Thomas Sinclair Furgeson James White John Piper Etc.
Jim why donāt you mention that Democrats are becoming socialists, why donāt you mention the fact that the 1925 Scopes Trial has been used to mock and misrepresent Christians, why donāt you mention the racism of the author, why donāt you mention the mocking attitude towards Christians that the author has, why donāt you mention the clear bias that the author has?
Jim, according to your reasoning, Jesus was on a foolās errand. He knew what would happen, He knew that they would kill Him, but apparently youāre more discerning than Jesus.
And those early Christians were just plain old stupid, they knew that preaching the gospel would land them in some hot water. Perhaps we should rename the āBook of Martyrsā to āThe book of Christians lacking wisdom from Jimā weāll send Polycarp this newfangled title, and weāll have you sign it Jim.
Christians know the cost.
āLet goods and kindred go, this moral life also, the body they may kill, Godās truth abideth still, His Kingdom is foreverā
Whoa! How about Iron Chef America? How else am I going to learn how to Beat Bobby Flay? Or How about Good Eats? You gotta admit, that Alton Brown guy has the best charisma, imagination, and creativity on the Food Network. He is just awesome, he deep fried a Turkey for crying out loud.
Furthermore, I think Christians in every denomination, Baptist, Presbyterian, Methodist, Lutheran, non-denominational denomination, Calvary Chapel, etc. aught to examine this matter using the scriptures, recognizing that there is Christian liberty, and that our goal is to please Christ, submitting what we watch/listen to, to Christ.
The Christians who are serious about this topic will submit themselves to the scriptures, even if it means to destroy every single copy of the following:
I think that everything isnāt black & white, there are grey areas, & on those grey areas we should seek godly counsel from multiple people.
The problem is that some people throw out the possibility of any grey areas that they would say that they would say allowing your kids to play pac man, pong, dig dug or galaga is bad. Or that having a Papa Smurf figurine is evil.
And most of the time it is them (& not the Bible) that determines what is black & white. Thatās why people I think so many young Christians who grew up in a house with such ridiculous rules go out & watch or listen to things that are clearly against scripture, but since they have grown up being taught that watching Veggie Tales is good & watching Reading Rainbow was bad, they either:
1. Believe it & hold everyone to that standard.
2. Realize itās a ridiculous rule & exercise āChristian Libertyā while watching something that is clearly against scripture.
3. Have a weak conscience in this issue & try desperately to find a balance.
Iāll be the first to admit that I donāt have it all figured out...
Dr. Tim doesnāt have time to write an IFB Joke book for 2018, is too busy watching Duck Dynasty and trying to figure out how to ward off those 85 pound squirrels from stealing his bird feeders. šæšæšæ
āDon't be fooled by their innocent look. Deers know karate, and they run out of the woods at night and punch people walking by in the face..ā
Donāt forget the critters, thereās a reason that the raccoons look like thieves, itās because they are, they go out and pick pocket peoples wallets and steal purses. And their warped view of fun is to steal 1 sock from peopleās dryers. Thatās why people have to go to Walmart every month to buy socks. Itās sickening.
And for Texas Peteās sake, donāt accuse me of profiling, because itās not animal profiling, itās just the hard facts. And donāt get me started on squirrels.
