Is It A Sin To Be Drinking
Drinking in and of itself is sin, it’s not a sin to drink alcohol.
Drinking in and of itself is not a sin. It’s not a sin to drink alcohol. Alcohol is a blessing from God. When it becomes sin is when a person begins to abuse it, or when it overcomes them and they can’t control their self anymore.
It just becomes sin when you abuse it.
Some people say, “It is not a sin to drink alcohol, but it is a sin if you don’t drink responsibly.” This statement is relative to each person’s understanding of what is responsible drinking.
Some people believe that it is sinful for someone who does not drink at all or has never had even one drop of alcohol in their life to be considered “under zealous.” In other words, they think that if you do not have any knowledge about something then you cannot be zealous about it or against it. It would appear this way because they do not understand the concept of being under zealous – that someone could be zealous about something without having any kind of experience with it at all like Jesus was when He declared His faithfulness among those who were offended by Him and called Him crazy (Matt 11:19). However, these people also fail to realize there are times when we are under zealous when we should be over zealous such as when someone robs our house or steals our car and then drives recklessly through town causing havoc on innocent bystanders (Luke 19:12-13).
When it overcomes you, when you’re unable to control yourself, when you begin to spend more money than you should on alcohol.
When you begin to drink more than you should, when it overcomes you and you’re unable to control yourself, then it’s a sin. This is when it becomes obvious that alcohol has become an addiction.
Alcohol is a depressant. It slows down your body systems and puts them into a sedated state of being. So at first, drinking may seem like fun because your brain and body are relaxed by this substance; but in the long run it will harm your health and make all aspects of life much more difficult for everyone involved if there’s someone who abuses their power as an alcoholic or addict around them (including their loved ones).
It’s important for us all to remember that alcohol is not water! It’s chemically composed of various chemicals that enter our bodies through ingestion into our blood stream which then travels through our liver where these chemicals are metabolized into other compounds which eventually end up being excreted out through urine/fecal matter as waste products without causing any damage whatsoever!
You see that Jesus our Saviour drank wine.
You see that Jesus our Saviour drank wine.
Yes, but it was not alcoholic wine.
Jesus drank alcohol when he was in his human form on earth: “And they made him a supper; and Martha served: but Lazarus was one of them that sat at the table with him. Then took Mary a pound of ointment of spikenard, very costly, and anointed the feet of Jesus and wiped his feet with her hair: and the house was filled with the odour of the ointment” (John 12:2-3). The Bible does not say whether this spikenard oil had any alcohol content or not, but it doesn’t matter because even if it did have some alcohol in it—which may or may not be true—it wasn’t enough to make him drunk like people who abuse alcohol today get drunk on their drinks today.
When we read about Jesus drinking wine during His time here on earth (John 2:1-11), we don’t have any indication anywhere in Scripture where He got drunk off His drink! On occasion He probably did get tipsy since He ate food with others while they were drinking wine at meals together (Luke 7:34), but nothing suggests He ever abused alcohol as many people do today when they drink too much too often!
When you read Luke chapter 7 verse 34 from verse 33 the Bible says “For John the Baptist came neither eating bread nor drinking wine ….”
The Bible says in Luke 7:34 that John the Baptist did not eat bread or drink wine.
John was a man of the law, he preached it and lived by it. He was not a believer in Jesus Christ. This means that when you read Luke 7:33-34 from verse 33 the Bible says “for John the Baptist came neither eating bread nor drinking wine; and ye say, He hath a devil.”
When you read this passage it would seem as if John had sinned because he did not partake of these two things according to what is written.
So if Jesus our Saviour drank wine and if you go to Hebrews chapter 9 verse 14 the Bible says “How much more shall the blood of Christ…” that gave us access to God through forgiveness of sin, right?
Hebrews 9:14 says that Jesus offered Himself to God as a single sacrifice for sins. This verse conveys the message of Christ’s once-for-all sacrifice for sin, but it also shows us that He is now seated at God’s right hand. From this verse we learn that Jesus is the perfect sacrifice for our sins, and through Him we have access to God through forgiveness of sin.
Now this is important because most people who don’t understand that by grace, they become lawless, they become over zealous and they begin to say ‘No I can’t drink at all!’

Now that is not what the Bible teaches us. It does not teach us that we cannot do anything. We are not by our own ability and strength able to do anything good but once we come into Christ through faith in his Gospel message, we are given a new nature, a new birth and that enables us with God’s help to say no to ungodliness and worldly desires.
The Bible says where there is no law there is no sin right? So what are we saying? We are saying that people who are not aware of the law are not sinners, that’s impossible because everybody is born a sinner.

Everybody has been born with an unquenchable thirst for sin. Even if they don’t know they have a sin nature or what kind of sin they should be committed to, but as long as they have a human body and soul, then they will commit sins in their lives.
