  1. Good article on drinking. I might note that Jesus is abstaining from wine until he can drink it with us in His kingdom (Matt. 26:29). I find it interesting that He did not drink wine during the 40 days He was on earth after the resurrection. Overseers of the church are not to be given to wine (1 Tim. 3:3; Titus 1:7), while deacons are forbidden to be given to much wine (1 Tim. 3:8). The difference seems to be stating that as one takes on more responsibility in the church, the drinking of wine should diminish. And meat and wine are the two matters Paul uses as an example of something to give up if it causes a brother to stumble (Rom. 14:21). I note, there is no command to drink and lots of warnings about the enticements of wine and strong drinks.
