Alcohol Is A Baited Trap!
By David J. Stewart
"Bread of deceit is sweet to a man; but afterwards his mouth shall be filled with gravel." —Proverb 20:17
Those who sell alcohol are as crooked as a dog's hind leg. Alcohol isn't just a trap, it's a baited trap. Proverb 20:17 tells us that “bread of deceit” is at first SWEET to a man. This is true of all sins, scams and evils. Satan always shows us the front yard, but never the back. Satan shows us the neon lights of Broadway and Las Vegas; but he doesn't show us the hospitals, prisons and morgues. Satan is a big liar (John 8:44) and there's no bigger lie today than the phrase DRINK RESPONSIBLY. What a misnomer! Having even one drink of alcohol begins to degrade one's better sense of judgment. There is no way possible to drink alcohol responsibly! Alcohol is a woeful evil in America, an evil which we have brought upon ourselves. Unfairly, it's rarely the drunk driver who dies. The innocent often suffer!
The Bible says in John 10:10 that Satan comes to us with only one purpose: to kill, steal and destroy. When you drink alcohol you are playing Russian Roulette my friend. The following wreck was caused by a drunk woman, who killed a police officer and then said... “I'm sorry, I didn't mean to kill him. I was just drunk.”
Above and below: The greedy beer cartels will never show you this. Beer company owners and executives should be tried and put in prison for life.
Below: The Officer's mother grieving at the spot where her son was killed. Boy, isn't beer great!
Below: The slain officer's wife and family grieving at the scene where he was killed. And yet beer continues to flow like a river through irresponsible cultures!
“I'm sorry, I didn't mean to kill him. I was just drunk.” —Drunk Driver
Stupid Americans never learn! Booze, booze and more booze!
A Few Words of Wisdom
Alcohol by nature has an element of deceit inherent to it. The Bible teaches this. Proverb 20:1 warns us that "strong drink is raging: and whosoever is deceived thereby is not wise." The term "strong drink" is used in the Bible to refer to intoxicating liquor. When the New Testament speaks of wine, such as the wine that Jesus made from water, it was NOT strong drink. Even children drank the wine because it was not intoxicating. This would be comparable today to the non-alcoholic sparkling champagnes that are sold at local grocery stores. Jesus certainly wouldn't have provided booze at a wedding where little children were present. Jesus never made strong drink.
Do you think anyone decides to kill someone with their car while drunk? No, of course not; but it happens every day all across America. People are deceived by strong drink, just as God said they would be. They think they can "drink responsibly"; but they can't. Actor Tim Allen was arrested for a DUI. George Jones, Glen Campbell and Mel Gibson are famous celebrities who've all been arrested for DUI's. Even U.S. President George W. Bush has a previous DUI arrest on his record. U.S. Vice President Dick Cheney has not one; but two DUI arrests (back-to-back). Do you think any of these famous people would want such a horrible charge of irresponsibility on their permanent record? No, but they all do. You see friend, you are playing with fire when you drink beer, and it's just a matter of time until YOU GET BURNED. It only takes once (PDF). Driving Under The Influence often becomes Dying Under The Influence.
As my pastor used to wisely say, "You can't take two drinks of beer if you don't take the first."

"Wine is a mocker, strong drink is raging: and whosoever is deceived thereby is not wise." —Proverb 20:1
The Madness of MADD!
Founded in 1948, Alcoholics Victorious support groups offer a safe environment where recovering people who recognize Jesus Christ as their "Higher Power" gather together and share their experience, strength and hope. AV meetings use both the 12 Steps and the Alcoholics Victorious Creed.
There is Hope!
