How Did Spurgeon Feel About The Use of Alcohol?
January 2, 2008 1 Comment
This post includes a couple letters written by Spurgeon on the use of alcohol. The use of alcoholic beverages has been a somewhat controversial issue in the SBC lately so these letters are sure to add to the fire.
For the record, I believe that Christians should totally abstain from use of alcoholic beverages. The detrimental effects that it can have on the family and the damage it does to a believer’s witness are just too much to overcome with the claim of “Christian liberty”. I believe this because I grew up in a home with an alcoholic father so I have first hand knowledge and experience with the consequences of someone who ends up going too far.
