NUMBER ONE FORCE “ALCOHOL”
There are various forces which erode and destroy a nation. One of the most subtle and most dangerous of these forces (Here in America) which is #1, and is destroying America, is “ALCOHOL”, it is the instrument of oppression.
Alcohol paralyses the senses, Makes one lurch and vomit, Extinguishes the feeble glimmer of reason which flickers in our poor minds.
It soon overcomes the strongest man, and turns him into a raging beast who, with empurpled face and bloodshot eyes, bellows forth oaths and threats against his surroundings and insults imaginary enemies.
Never in any animal species, not among pigs, nor jackals, nor donkeys, is such ignominy to be found. The ugliest thing in creation is a drunkard, a repulsive being, the sight of whom makes one ashamed to belong to the same living species.
It is about time people realized that ALCOHOL leads to false sense of values, to aimlessness, lack of character, destitution, beggary, adultery, fornication, drunkenness, stealing gangsterism, murder, rape etc.
That is why any sensible and sane person will ALWAYS stay away from alcohol, avoid the liquor (Bottle) stores, and bars. Don’t be a sucker! Don’t Drink. There are some people who are proud, instead of being ashamed, of knowing nothing or very little of the pathetic conditions caused by liquor in our country .
God has made statements in His Word (BIBLE) 70+ times not to partake, or give alcohol to anybody, and what it does. For example;
Leviticus 10:9 Do not drink wine nor strong drink, thou, nor thy sons with thee, when ye go into the tabernacle of the congregation, lest ye die: it shall be a statute for ever throughout your generations:
Proverbs 20:1 Wine is a mocker, strong drink is raging: and whosoever is deceived thereby is not wise.
Isaiah 5:11 Woe unto them that rise up early in the morning, that they may follow strong drink; that continue until night, till wine inflame them!
Proverbs 4:17 Violence results from drinking
Proverbs 23:21 Drinking leads to poverty.
Proverbs 23:29-30 Strong drink produces sorrow, contentions, wounds without cause, babbling, and redness of eyes.
Proverbs 23:31 Do not be tempted by intoxicants.
Proverbs 23:32 God’s Word warns that liquor eventually harms all who drink.
Proverbs 23:33 It fills men’s minds with adulterous and impure thoughts.
Proverbs 23:33 It produces willfulness and prevents reformation.
Proverbs 23:35 Drinking is habit-forming. One drink calls for another.
Isaiah 5:11-12 Woe comes to the drunkards.
Isaiah 5:22 More woes to them that drink.
Isaiah 22:13 Drinking and carnality go together and leave men hopeless.
Habakkuk 2:15 It is wrong to give one’s neighbor drink – no social drinking.
Habakkuk 2:16 Drink leads to shame and humiliation.
1 Corinthians 6:10
No drunkard shall inherit the kingdom of God. (Therefore the preaching of the Gospel must include preaching against the use of alcohol.)
One has only to examine the Bible to find abundant references condemning the use of alcoholic beverages. In fact, if the preacher is to stick to his Bible, preach the whole truth, and be fair to the Word of God, he MUST preach against alcohol.
