Question: “Is drinking alcohol a sin?”
Answer: Wine, wine vinegar, and liquor and wine have always been considered an evil to be avoided by Christians, however, some people still have an uneasy feeling about it. Are Christians going to end up being a part of the “wine wars?”
If we want to understand what is being presented on the cover of the latest issue of the Pentateuch – The Book of Mormon, we can study the scriptures. As I mentioned, the verses that talk about drinking wine are not “quoted” verbatim, as Bible students would be taught in Bible class, and these quotes are found on the front cover. These were not originally presented to the publishers of the book, though. A few of these verses were already present in the Book of Mormon:
“Be careful to avoid all evil” (Alma 30:27).
“Wine is a mild drink, an essential food, for the stomach and intestines (Alma 5:15).”
“Drink not intoxicating liquors, or you will die” (Mosiah 19:15).
“When the children of Israel did drink, they did drink in part (Alma 12:3). ”
“And thou shalt not drink wine, or they that are wine-bibbers shall die” (Alma 30:16)
As it stands, though, the majority of scripture that was sent to the publishers of the book was not specifically pertaining to alcohol consumption. However, one thing is abundantly clear: The Book of Mormon does make the claim about the dangers with the use of wine:
“And when Joseph, the son of Helaman… drank wine, he drank of the wine, and died; for he was drunken with wine” (D&C 93:7).
“And when the children of Israel did drink, they did drink in part (Alma 12:3)”
“When the children of Israel did drink, they did drink in part (Alma 12:4)
“When the children of Israel did drink, they did drink in part (Alma 12:5)”
“Be watchful upon yourselves, for ye are made naked out of the heathen by drunkenness and drunkenness is iniquity” (2 Nephi 27:22)
