Alcohol: Is it a sin or not? Here's something that's been on my mind for a while now, I was raised into a Christian Family(for that I'm grateful) and my folks tend to believe in the faith of that of methodist/Nazarene. In all the years I've been living, I had the thought process of smoking/drinking being a sin against God but in the past few years I've gained some really good Christian friends who are really into the word and such, but happen to drink socially. I stop to think to myself that I don't really recall anywhere in the Bible that would be a sin or would cause you to lose your salvation. I'll admit that I'm not a strong Christian or read my Bible as much as I ought to, so I was wondering what your take on this is. Thanks in advance.
