  • None of us should, they are both bad habits and unhealthy.

  • If they want to, why not? Didn't Jesus drink wine?

  • Jesus turned water into wine for TOTAL strangers. Jesus drank beer and wine. Dont think he smoked. But God DID give ME the right to choose for myself. Anything can be a sin if it keeps you from, or takes you away from your family and husbandly obligations. So shopping can be a sin, being lazy can be a sin, ignoring your kids can be a sin. If you drink so much that you neglect your husband and kid's it's a sin. Get the idea. Oh yea, I DO drink and I smoke. God will decide my fate after death, not some bible thumping moron who points fingers at me and say's Im going to hell.

  • I think as long as they aren't abusing it & getting drunk that it is just fine.

  • he drank wine, but he didn't get drunk on it. I don't think he drank beer. You shouldn't smoke, but people do. But that doesn't mean you aren't going to heaven or that he doesn't love you. It is ok to drink alcohol, but you shouldn't get drunk on it and again it isn't going to stop you from going to heaven. The only thing that will stop you is you denying him.
