Social drinking is one of those controversies that never seems to find a resolution among the people of God. In today’s sermon, evangelist Clint De France looks at alcoholic beverage consumption from the perspective of solemn Divine utterances–what has God said about it? As Paul admonished, “Abstain from every form of evil” (1 Thessalonians 5:22).
And Mordecai told them to answer Esther: “Do not think in your heart that you will escape in the king’s palace any more than all the other Jews. For if you remain completely silent at this time, relief and deliverance will arise for the Jews from another place, but you and your father’s house will perish. Yet who knows whether you have come to the kingdom for such a time as this?” (Esther 4:13-14, NKJV)
