Wine or Grape Juice?

Our pastor preached on Colossians 2:16-17.

“Therefore let no one pass judgment on you in questions of food and drink, or with regard to a festival or a new moon or a Sabbath. These are a shadow of the things to come, but the substance belongs to Christ.”

One of the the things that occurred to me when he was preaching is that there are so many who have never heard a biblical view of alcohol.

(Scroll over the following verses and they’ll pop up automatically)

Luke 22:18, 7:34

Gen. 14:18

1 Timothy 5:23

Deut. 14:22-26

Ps. 104:14-15

Pr. 31:6

Of course there are strict warnings against drunkenness (Eph. 5:18 and others), but these passages do not teach that alcohol is strictly forbidden. After all….what did Jesus say to take in remembrance of Him?

Hint: It wasn’t grape juice.
