Preparing for Tough Topics

I’ll be sharing a message about Christians and alcohol this week.  I’m wanting to get some feedback from our CornerStoners. Well, maybe that isn’t the best term for our attenders 😉

I’ll be sharing not only what the Bible says about drinking alcohol, but also we’ll be talking about real world consequences in our culture today. I just want to get an idea of where you stand on the issue.  Take the following poll and let me know what you think.

[polldaddy poll=3832648]


I am a former design engineer who now pastors Cornerstone Community Church in Galax, Virginia. I'm passionate about following Jesus and I love technology. I've been married to Jennifer for 28 years, and we have three adult children.

    OK, there is no place on the poll for me to vote. I don’t believe the bible says we absolutely can’t drink. It says that we are not to be drunk. Now, I wouldn’t give a second thought to taking a drink because I have seen it ruin too many lives. I wish it didn’t exist, however it does and people have the right to drink responsibly, if they are of legal age. Anyway, that is my 2 cents worth. For what it is worth.
    I hope you will share the results and the sermon.

    I feel its ok to have a drink, such as a glass of wine with a dinner or a glass of beer with a pizza, as long as that 1 drink doesn’t alter your heart and mind from the control God wants us to have over ourselves. I feel anything we let take over the control of our heart and mind can be sinful such as the well know drugs and sex but I feel there are other things people don’t consider such as greed, hate, gossip, envy, deception…. and the list goes on and on. We need to pray “without ceasing” as told in the Bible so we can over come as many of these everyday things we do without thinking so the ones we realize are a hindrance to our spiritual life we can fore go all together. Thanks for letting me express my thoughts !!!

    Good thoughts so far. Several people have wanted options in between the ones listed. I purposely left out the middle road, hoping to see the extremes of what everyone believes. It will definitely be an interesting message this week!

    Growing up I was raised in a home where alcohol was forbidden and wrong. As I have established my own life and crowd we get together and have small parties with alcohol. We are all responsible and have responisibilites that we take care of on a daily basis. However, I also over the past few years have started to have a guilty feeling when I drink. I am not sure if I am sinning against God…
