The topic of alcohol will split the Christian community in two as sides debate complete abstinence verses moderation. Famous pastors such as Perry Noble and Clayton Jennings have fallen due to alcohol abuse. One person asked Billy Graham: “I wish my wife would get off my back. She says I need to get treatment for my drinking, but I can stop any time I want to. What’s wrong with a few drinks, anyway?”

Graham responded: What’s wrong in your case is obvious: your drinking is clearly interfering with your life and your marriage. If it weren’t, your wife wouldn’t be so concerned—but she loves you and she is concerned about you, and she hates what alcohol is doing to you. CONTINUE
