“If wine is a poison to the drunkard, does that mean we are to have an aversion to it? Please, no. We do not let that spoil the taste for us, for on the contrary, we delight in the taste of wine!”
Calvin enjoyed his share of wine. While I’m something of a teetotaler, I’m reminded that the kingdom of God is not a matter of eating and drinking but of righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit (Rom 14:17). In other words, I dare not legislate for fellow believers in Christ.
Drunkenness is what Scripture condemns.
