“Wine is a mocker; strong drink is raging; and whosoever is dceived thereby is not wise,” Prov. XX., I.

The moral is that no man should be deceived into drinking to excess. Thus St. Paul wrote to the Ephesians, “Be not drunk with wine.” Eph. V., 18. Yet in his first Epistle to Tim. V., 23, he writes, “Do not still drink water, but use a little wine for thy stomach’s sake, and thy frequent infirmities.” Our Lord Himself blamed the Pharisees that they accused John the Baptist of having a devil because he abstained from drink, but when they saw Christ Himself drinking wine in moderation, they said, “Behold a man that is a glutton and a wine-drinker, a friend of publicans and sinners.” Matt. XI, 19. Let us have temperance by all means. But there is no warrant in Scripture or in reason for prohibition.
