You mean when a drug/vaccine substance is injected into a guinea pig and voila a scientific paper is produced to convince the public of its absolute necessity, effective immediately?...š¤¦š¼āāļø

We are well, but our children and grandchildren have experienced severe financial and personal hardships because of the āplandemicā. So sorry to hear of your trials too, brother. But, as you said, GOD is Sovereign and has shown us His tender mercies each and every day. So good to see you post again.š, and dear sister ladybug, too.
B. McC- you have stated several times on this forum *your opinion* concerning the drinking of wine. The prohibition of drinking wine is not to be found in the Bible. When God does not forbid something in Scripture, neither should we. To do so is legalism and adding to Godās Word. Take care.
Christians can hold a very selective view on sin, condemning obvious outward sins of the flesh, while ignoring their own well-entrenched attitude sins. Spiritual pride and judgmental attitudes towards others, seems to be prevelant in the Christian community. To our shame.š
All true Christians everywhere should deplore drunkenness, but not all agree on total abstinence. We are to receive one another and not make differences about diet, drink, or special days a test of fellowship or spirituality, per Romans 14:1-15:13. Christians with a weak conscience stumble easily and need to be built up, while stronger Christians are sometimes quick to criticize and look down on others. Best to let the Spirit work, and both groups need to exercise love and patience.
Well, you would have a hard time convincing my Pastor (and us ) that using wine for the Lordās Table, or for a brother or sister to have a glass of wine with dinner is a sin and forbidden in Scripture. Much wine, causing another believer to stumble, and drunkenness is what is forbidden.
