Will someone explain to me why some of these wacky Christian sects are so vehemently oppose to alcohol consumption?
I mean, it’s one thing to have a shot of Jack, but the problem is that you’re not supposed to drink the entire fucking bottle-which I did once….don’t do that, because the outcome is a nightmare.
All the Bible tells you is to not drink to excess. The only problem is that there are people out there who don’t seem to know their limits:
“Do not drink wine nor strong drink, thou, nor thy sons with thee, when ye go into the tabernacle of the congregation, lest ye die: it shall be a statute for ever throughout your generations:”
Okay, so you’re not supposed to show up to church drunk. I get it. However, tell me what Christ did when He performed His first miracle? He was the bartender at a party!
So, I could never understand these people who opposed alcohol consumption.
Colorado still has Sunday laws in effect, which drain the state economy and are, frankly, stupid.
If you are reading this article and you object to booze, why? One might understand if alcoholism runs in your particular family; that makes sense. However, who are you to tell someone else what they should consume?
As for myself, I no longer find the satisfaction in alcohol that I once did. I drank to keep myself from beating people to death because I waa a fun drunk. I laughed at everything.
I even flirted with a woman whom, in mystate, was the bride emerging from the wedding reception.
How the hell was I was suppose to know? She had dark skin and long hair. Put the two together and booooiiiiiinnnnnggggg!
Of course, I had had at least 10-12 drinks in me within the span of two to three hours, but I couldn’t resist.
You know, even if she’s divorced today, I’ll bet she remembers me from twenty years ago. She never knew my name, but just what I did and in the state which I was in: GONE!
The funny thing now is that I can barely finish one beer before I have to sit down. I simply can’t drink like I used to-nor do I want to. I simply have no reason to do that anymore, as the stresses I face now aren’t nearly as bad as the ones I faced ten to fifteen years ago.
However, the point is that religious people need to get over their problem with regard to alcohol, because their Savior was the manufacturer and distributor-and I don’t think theer was a legal age back then…yet another idea which needs to go.
Cigarettes kill, and you can get those at eighteen. Beer doesn’t kill, but you have to wait until you’re 21.
