Lutherans are the biggest consumers of alcohol among Protestant Christians
Among Protestant Christians in the United States, Lutherans are most likely to say that they consume alcohol while Pentecostals are least likely, a recently released LifeWay Research poll has found.

The poll, which was conducted in August 2017 but released Tuesday, found that over 75 percent of Lutherans surveyed answered “yes” when asked if they drink alcohol. Meanwhile, 62 percent of Methodist respondents responded with the same answer.

By comparison, just 43 percent of nondenominational Christians, 33 percent of Baptists and 23 percent of Assemblies of God/Pentecostal Christians said that they consume alcohol. ...

Nothing is wrong with alcohol, just the way they use it.

The first church met on a mountainside, in a garden, by the seashore, in an upper room. I thank God we have facilities to meet in, but unless the Lord meets with us we may as well stay home.

Interesting comment about abuse of the word "Christian" because this is the world we are dealing with, with the media who have very little contact with churches of any sort.
They think those big buildings occupying prime real estate in key locations around their towns and cities are The Church, so naturally they like to do stories like this one.
Another angle they do is to consider the wealth factor--how each denomination represents different classes, with Episcopalians and Presbyterians being at the top, and Pentecostals and Baptists being at the bottom.
That makes a lot of sense when you look at those buildings around your own town. Baptists may occupy a couple prime locations, but many of that denomination are located in small, out of the way locations. Episcopalians are generally not and even have private schools attached to their real estate. That brings in lots of $$.

I encourage everyone to read the article, its abuse of the word “Christian” is easily seen. It includes Penacostals and Assemblies of God as Christians. And Methodist churches seem to be on the more liberal side, ironically John Wesley wouldn’t approve of the practice.

But I think there are 2 lessons we can learn from the article:

1. Read articles with logic.
2. Don’t exercise Christian liberty if it causes your brother to stumble. As I have said, abstain from it for the sake of unity, love, and the advancement of the gospel.

The point of the poll is don’t let your babies grow up to be Lutheran or Methodists

“Churchgoers’ perspectives on alcohol are not changing very fast,” LifeWay Research Executive Director Scott McConnell said in a statement. “The majority believe that biblically they can drink, but they choose not to.”

That statement seems to tie in with the consensus on here.

I feel rather odd because a few weeks before the Lord brought me to himself, he took away the desire for drink. So it is not a choice that I make, that I do not drink, but rather a decision of the sovereign God, who took away from me something that was very destructive. I say odd, but I suppose there must be others for whom the Lord has done a similar thing.

I wonder if the "buzz" or "hit" one gets from the communion wine is also designed as part of the experience, seeing as faith in Jesus Christ and receiving eternal life gives the sinner the greatest experience they have ever known, being quickened by the Spirit of Christ, and filled with the Spirit of God, having a new nature and becoming a new creature?

There is no doubt that even a sip would give a teetotaler a sort of buzz and make them light headed for a while. The same principal applies to tobacco.

Hey, is this a late-night hybrid of two polar opposites?

At any rate, yessir. Running the risk of being corrected by Pastor Andy again, if SA has a point they would like to make with this postings, I wish they would make it plainly. Otherwise, there is a whole lot of angst getting stirred up. But as I wrote before, when iron sharpens iron, it produces as fair amount of sparks.
