Topic: Drunkards Are Deceived – Higher Everyday by Pastor W. F. Kumuyi | Date:Saturday, May 26, 2018.
‘Wine is a mocker, strong drink is raging: and whosoever is deceived thereby is not wise” (Proverbs 20:1).
Some researchers comment that alcohol, “can result in high blood pleasure, liver damage, heart disease and has been connected to stomach and breast cancer… (and) poisoning leading to a comma or death. Most people are aware of the dangers of taking alcohol, yet they indulge in the deadly habit or serve others with it. Someone said, “The road to hell is paved with empty wine bottles.” God knows that alcohol, like a poison, is harmful to human health. That is why He forbids us from taking it. But it is unfortunate that many youths today are becoming addicted to alcohol. They drink themselves to stupor in parties and ceremonies.
A Youtube video recently showed a church in a nation in Africa where innocent worshipers are deceived that taking beer and liquor will help in casting evil spirits from them. Others say they take alcohol to forget their sorrows, yet, they end up in deeper sorrows. The Bible text of today says that such deceived people are not wise. The Holy Bible declares that no drunkards shall inherit God’s kingdom (Roman 6:9-1O).
