About Alcoholism

“I took My stand in the midst of the world, and in the flesh I appeared to them. I found them all drunk, and I did not find any of them thirsty (for the Truth). My heart ached for the children of humanity, because they are blind in their hearts and do not see, for they came into the world empty, and they also seek to depart from the world empty. … They are drunk. When they shake off their wine, then they will change their ways.” (The Gospel of Thomas, 28)

“Be sensible and vigilant, because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking someone he may devour!” (1 Peter 5:8)

“And take heed to yourselves, lest your hearts are weighed down with … drinking!…” (Luke 21:34)

“Let us walk becomingly, as in the day, not in carousing and drinking!…” (Rom 13:13)

“It is good neither to eat flesh, nor to drink wine, nor anything by which your brother stumbles, or is offended, or is made weak!” (Rom 14:21)

“And do not be drunk with wine, in which is excess, but be filled with the Spirit!…” (Eph 5:18)
