“But they also have erred through wine And…

“But they also have erred through wine, And through intoxicating drink are out of the way; The priest and the prophet have erred through intoxicating drink, They are swallowed up by wine, They are out of the way through intoxicating drink; They err in vision, they stumble in judgment. For all tables are full of vomit and filth; so that no place is clean (Isaiah 28:7-8 NKJV).  Does this sound like a good new year’s party, or is it the sickening vomit of old year’s drunkenness?  Have you notice the beer commercials don’t show anyone throwing up their beer? The liquor ads don’t show the blurred, distorted vision of the drivers who kill, maim, and destroy innocent people? The bad effects of “intoxicating drink” are used to “ring out the old, and ring in the new year.” It still looks sickeningly the same, doesn’t it? What’s “new?”

At Least the Liqour Lost the Election

In my home county (which voted for Romney 2 to 1) the residents of the “capital” city voted on whether or not to legalize liquor stores. The measure failed…thank God! It didn’t fail by much, which leads me to look at the ‘religious community’ around my area through even more jaded eyes. In a town riddled with ‘churches’ the referendum lost by only about 130 votes! Some who supposedly consider themselves to be a Christian tried to justify their actions of voting in favor of such a thing by doing so under the guise “its good for the local economy.” We again see that whatever/whomever controls the purse-strings of the soul controls the heart-strings of the soul as well. If a person doesn’t see the “in your face” evil’s of liquor then it’s because their soul has been blinded by something much darker.

Wine is a mocker, Strong drink is a brawler, And whoever is led astray by it is not wise.” (Proverbs 20:1)
