Great Sermon! I am amazed by the different ministries that have large ministries, that teach the imminent return of the Lord Jesus, who feel free to teach it's permissible to imbibe alcoholic beverages who use Scripture to back up their sinful indulgence.
I attended a church years ago, where the pastor of the congregation stood up to say, ‚ÄúI don't care what anyone else says, I'm not giving up my wine,‚ÄĚ Needless to say, I wasn't there to hear the comment, but I was told by a reliable source she was shocked at the pastor‚Äôs statement because she commented,‚ÄĚ Why would he make such a statement and we run a program for alcoholics who attends our church?‚ÄĚ Shocking? No, because we are in the Laodicean church age.
Keep preaching the truth, and keep the banner flying high for sake of righteousness! We know in the end we are going to win!
