Is God allowed Alcohol in Moses period?

(1/2) > >>

James Ruban:
26 அங்கே உன் இஷ்டப்படி ஆடுமர்டு, திராட்சரசம், மதுபானம் முதலான சகலத்தையும் பணம்கொடுத்து வாங்கி, உன் தேவனாகிய கர்த்தருடைய சந்நிதியில், நீயும் உன் குடும்பத்தாரும் உன் வாசல்களில் இருக்கிற லேவியனும் புசித்துச் சந்தோஷப்படுவீர்களாக.

உபாகமம் 14

இந்த வசனத்தில் தேவன் ஏன் மதுபானம் குடிக்க அனுமதித்தார்?

அதுவும் கர்த்தருடைய சந்நிதியில்?

James Ruban:
No one answered yet what a difficult question I have ever seen

அவர் கர்த்தர்

It’s clear from this verse and others that fermented drink was an acceptable part of the Israelite diet. But the Bible warns against drunkenness (Gal 5:21; Eph 5:18) and urges moderation in using fermented drinks. See Does Proverbs teach abstinence from alcohol? (Pr 20:1).

Justin Issac:
Deut 14:26, Strong drink - From this it is clear that the use of strong drink is not sinful in itself. The same word appears in its Greek form (Heb., shęcar; Greek, sikęr) in Luke 1:15. But then,
See in Leviticus 10:9 says,
"Do not drink wine nor strong drink, thou, nor thy sons with thee, when ye go into the tabernacle of the congregation, lest ye die: it shall be a statute for ever throughout your generations:" - Leviticus 10:9
In the Old Testament ‘wine and strong drink’ covers all liquids that cause inebriation especially those which lead men into folly (compare Numbers 6:3; Deuteronomy 29:6, Judges 13:4, Judges 13:7, Judges 13:14, Proverbs 20:1, Proverbs 31:4, Proverbs 31:6).
However, it is accepted that men do desire it for themselves and that they may enjoy it in moderation (Deuteronomy 14:26).
In this context it must be remembered that when fresh, drinkable water was not available, which was often, wine was the main alternative. But it was wine that brought Noah into folly and brought shame on his household (Genesis 9:21-27), an incident which was from the beginning a constant reminder of its dangers when taken in excess.
