a blog without pictures is

like an ice cream shoppe with no mint chip
absolutely ridiculous, and not worthy of my patronage .
I had a blog post worked up in my head, and well, Mr. Blogger is not cooperating with my desires to share the fruits of my labor from the weekend(I'll leave you in suspense as to what those 'fruits' may be.. LOL) with you all. So I'll leave you with a poll question that I received in an email this morning.
taken from a Christianity Newsletter thingy, that my mom signed me up for:
Question: Is it wrong for a Christian to drink beer?
hmmmm. I have some thoughts on this, but I'd LOVE to hear yours!
Leave me a comment. Express yourself!

Not in moderation. If to be drunk, I would say yes.

kels said...

heck no! i'm not a beer drinker myself, but it sure it's wrong... in moderation, like jonell said.

i mean, they drank in the bible... so it's ok as long as you're not stupid about it.

I like to have a beer once in a while..I don't think it makes me a bad person. Moderation is key.
Ever since I became a mom drinking just doesn't interest me.

Hey there... I don't think drinking beer (or any other alcoholic beverage for that matter) in and of itself is wrong. However, the motive behind it is a factor... If one is drinking to get drunk - or to "drink away" problems - then I believe that could be a bigger issue. Also, I think it could depend on the company around... The bible says to not cause another brother to stumble... So, if out with other people - perhaps with someone who has had a drinking issue or struggles in that area - then I think it would be the right thing to abstain from having even a beer - to not tempt others. Trust me, I know I did a lot of things the wrong way back at Purdue! My how my views have changed... :-)

i don't think it is wrong. josh and i have talked about this before, because whenever we go out with new church friends or our small group, we are a little weary to be the first to order alcohol. i don't know why there is this stigma. if we go and get sloshed together, yes, i see the problem. enjoying a drink or two (or 3 for the big boys who can handle it) doesn't seem anti-christian at all to me.

Jocelyn said...

I would not see why it would be wrong! I think that as the others stated moderation and the being responsible with your drinking is the key!!! :)

Well, you know how I feel about, as I take a sip of my Chardonnay..but I agree with what Nicole said about being a stumbling block, if that situation occurs...but otherwise, I'm going to be me and if someone doesn't like it, well, fine..but as long as you are just having a few drinks together as friends, what's the big deal..we have wine every now and then at our Life group..
