What Does the Bible Say About Drinking?

Bottle & glass
A little of this and a little of that. One can definitely make an argument for the Christian Bible as an opponent of drunkenness, and some will argue that the correct interpretation of biblical advice is to abstain from drinking alcohol. For this side of the debate, see It's in the Bible.

On the other hand, those who argue that the Bible permits drinking in moderation have scripture on their side, too -- from the parable of the miracle of the wedding at Cana to the Last Supper. For their case, take a look at the Bible on drinking wine.

You can find links to these and other issues of biblical teaching by searching the McKinley Magellan Internet Guide.
