It is in the book of Genesis 9:20-26 when the first reference to wine and intoxication is made in the Bible, when Noah established a vineyard and began drinking wine. As a result of his drinking, Noah became nude and cursed his son Ham, who saw him naked and refused to cover him as a result of his drinking. Noah cursed his son as a result of the consequences of drinking.
Drinking alcohol has been one of the most heatedly debated topics among Christians for a long time now, and for good reason. Some believe that God forbids Christians from using alcoholic beverages, while others believe that the Bible does not indicate that consuming alcoholic beverages is a sin. The Bible states in Psalm 104:15, "And wine that gladdeneth the heart of man." Why would something that was given to us as a gift from God in order to make our lives more pleasurable be considered a sin? The Bible states in the book of First Timothy chapter 5 verse twenty-three that you should no longer drink water, but instead should drink a little wine for the benefit of your stomach. According to the word of God in this passage, wine is a substance that has therapeutic properties.
Drinking alcohol is only banned in the Bible when a person consumes an excessive amount of it. When a person consumes alcohol to the point of endangering others, it is against the law. The Bible outlines the harmful consequences of using alcoholic beverages. God, according to the Bible, does not approve of excessive drinking, which can result in significant health issues and economic hardship. According to Proverbs 23:20, you should avoid associating with individuals who use excessive amounts of alcohol because drunkards and gluttons will become impoverished and appear as if they are dressed in rags. Drinking alcohol is reserved for individuals who are dying or in a condition of sorrow, according to the Bible. It appears from the Bible texts that drinking is not a sin, but it can have harmful consequences for people who overindulge.
