Take a step back on that europe disaster part. In the states there are more problems with teens getting drunk because itsI not allowed and rebellion follows it.
If parentsu taught their kids that u can have fun without being drunk, we would have less problems. Its not the age, its the peoüle u surround urself with and what and how you arewant taught,.
Plus u are not allowed to drink all sorts of alcohol at 16. Ur making it worse than it is. Harf alcohol is 18.
amen

Drinking alcohol is not a sin. Being a drunkard is a sin.
Hi P4T,

How would you define a drunkard?
Paul talks about drunkards not inheriting the Kingdom of God.

So what is a drunkard?
If a believer struggles with alcohol yet does not get drunk are they a drunkard?
If they drink too much but do not get intoxicated are they the people Paul refers to?

This has often puzzled me

That’s not the same as drinking alcohol as referred to in the thread.

I just queried the post as there may be people who think alcohol should be
consumed for medicinal purposes, ie those old movies when people had a tipple
for shock, or drank half a bottle before having a tooth pulled etc. I think we are past
that now with modern medicine.

There are also different kinds of alcohol used for other purposes, ethanol for
example.
A bottle was often included in the medical kits of doctors in the good old days. Many today still drink to deal with pain. Problem arises that after the pain has been relieved they become addicted to the cure. Same problem with many heroine based pain killers.

Good point opium based pain killers can result in addiction.
I think the intention for most is not to be addicted, but it can happen.

Whereas often people set out to get drunk.

Those who drink for fun can wind up in a similar situation. You need not be real drunk to have an issue when you decide to drive home.
