DUI: Dying Under The Influence
By David J. Stewart
"Wine is a
mocker, strong drink is raging: and whosoever is deceived thereby is not wise."
Steps In The Degeneration Of Our Nation ('liquor drinking is a spiritual disease,' Bro. Lester Roloff, 1914-1982)
We have a serious drug problem in the United States, and that DRUG is alcohol. More than crack cocaine, ecstasy, methamphetamines, heroine, marijuana, and all other drugs combined [legal or illegal], alcohol is the worst menace. I just read in my local newspaper about a 13-year old girl who was struck and killed by a 56-year old drunk driver. This scenario is repeated all across America on a daily basis. Booze is of the Devil. You'll agree when it's your 13-year old son or daughter. Please read, When It's Too Late.
Miller Beer company claims to be upholding "The American Way" with their Liquid Devil. Tragically, irresponsibility has become the American way. Drunkenness, wild parties, immorality, cursing in God's name, prostitution, divorce, and booze have become the American way! Woe unto America!
Americans turn their radio up to hear Toby Keith sing about the American way, while guzzling their booze so they can go kill someone with their car. America is sinfully proud, a nation of pleasure-seekers, who have disregarded God's Word, and sought out false prophets... "For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears" (2nd Timothy 4:3). People have become INTOLERANT to the truth. A preacher can't make it big nowadays unless he dips-his-sails, trims his message, caters to feminists and abortionists, and steers clear of all controversial issues. Take pastor Lon Solomon for example, who stated that abortion is only a "minor concern" in his mega church of 10,000 people every Sunday. What a sorry sellout! The American way is a sinful way.
Did you ever stop to think that alcohol has killed far more Americans than the all of our war dead combined? Alcohol kills more people in just 2-years in America, than all American soldiers killed in WWII. How tragic and sad. The same fool who criticizes the warmongers in Washington, sits there guzzling down a beer, so he can kill more Americans while DYING UNDER THE INFLUENCE (Listen | Download).
Putting Alcohol Into Perspective
Booze is DECEITFUL, just as Proverb 20:1 states. The fact is that no one ever plans to get arrested for a DUI, or to face imprisonment for a conviction of vehicular homicide. No one plans to be reckless, irresponsible and destructive when they consume alcohol, but it happens with thousands of alcohol drinkers every day. Most beer drinkers laugh and scorn at my articles exposing the evils of alcohol, until they kill someone or their loved one gets murdered by an alcoholic fool.
We talk about the atomic bomb dropped on Hiroshima (killing 80,000 victims), and the nuclear bomb dropped on Nagasaki (which killed another 35,000). Yet, twice that amount of people die every just in the U.S. because of alcohol related car crashes. How's that for dropping a bomb on you! This doesn't include all the industrial workplace related deaths caused by alcohol, or the oil tanker that a drunk barge captain slammed into Alaskan shoreline years ago, which did exponential damage to the environment for decades to come.
DYING UNDER THE INFLUENCE
(a 12 part video series exposing the evils of alcohol)
More Americans have died from alcohol-related deaths than all of the victims of Hitler's holocaust, and this does not include all of the alcohol-related accidents in other nations. So alcohol is more deadly than the holocaust and the atomic bomb. Why is such a deadly substance, which has proven itself to be a menace to society, kept legal, advertised, and openly promoted? I am upset at the hypocrisy of our government leaders, who outlaw fireworks to protect children, when alcohol has killed thousands more children than fireworks ever have. I think everyone knows of an intersection in their town where someone was rundown and killed by a motorist, and only then did the city put up a stop sign. This seems to be the way most governments work. Someone's got to be killed before anyone will act. Unfortunately, booze is a multi-billion dollar industry, and America has become a land of boozers.
Americans are still in shock from the 911 attacks which killed nearly 3,000 American citizens. Yet, what about the millions of people killed by alcoholics? We need a War On Alcohol in America! The real War On Terror is at home here in the United States, on our streets, because we are living in terror of drunk drivers. I think every time there's another DUI fatality that the business who sold the beer should be sued. Chicago, and many other big cities, have started legally going after gun shop owners who indiscriminately sell guns to anyone with money. Why don't those same hypocritical city leaders go after the taverns and night clubs that indiscriminately sell booze to anyone? Is not a car as much a deadly weapon and a threat as a loaded gun? Yes, it certainly is! Our laws are plagued with injustice, sinful hypocrisy, and corruption. The bottom line is that alcohol is destroying America.
I took my dog down to the park the other day and the poor thing cut her front paw open on some glass from a broken beer bottle. All across America, our parks and public walkways are littered with broken glass from beer bottles. America is not anywhere as beautiful as she could be, because our nation has abandoned the God of the Bible. Most people simply don't care anymore. Booze makes people not care, so they drink even more beer. The hallmark quality of being a Christian is caring. Do you care? It's tragic how many professed Christians drink booze, and are no different from the sinful world. This is a woeful evil.
In the 9 years of the Vietnam War, 57,000 Americans died fighting for our political leader's selfish agendas. Millions protested that atrocity in the streets, completely blind to the 2 million victims who died at the hands of alcohol during the same period of time. Where are the protesters to the evils of alcohol?
We ask, what can we do about cancer/aids/and starving children? Well, what about alcohol?
If a horrible plague struck America today, Hollywood actors would put on telethons raising money to find a cure! Rock stars would pack 'em in by the thousands for benefit concerts! Churches all across America would collect donations for the victims. Scientists would be hard at work, and rewards would be offered for anyone who could find an antidote! Politicians would run on the platform of stopping the plague that's killing America! Yet, tragically, alcohol is a malignant disease, a silent killer that continues to kill, steal, and destroy (John 10:10).
More than 400 Americans will die this week in alcohol-related car wrecks; many of them innocent people, victimized by a drunk driver. That's more people than fit on a 747 jumbo jet! What if a packed 747 went down once a week every week and everyone died? Would we be up in arms? Would there be a congressional investigation? Yes, of course!
The beer barons have done a number on us with our consent! We hear the name Busch and think of gardens or a baseball stadium! Coors has us thinking about snow-capped mountains and icy springs when we hear their name! When we hear about "God's country," we think about Old-Style beer! But it's destruction!
Sadly, people are drinking trying to find happiness and in the end it's the one thing they have the least of! And even if they did have a good time briefly, they can't remember it!
Alcohol and Immorality are Inseparable
"Look not thou upon the wine when it is red, when it giveth his colour in the cup, when it moveth itself aright. At the last it biteth like a serpent, and stingeth like an adder. Thine eyes shall behold strange women, and thine heart shall utter perverse things." —Proverb 23:31-32
Proverb 23:32 - What is in the bite of a serpent? Poison!
Why do people drink and vomit? It's because their stomach has more sense than their head! Their body rejects the poison. That's why we call it being intoxicated. It's a toxin!
Proverb 23:33 - strange women = someone you're not married to! Look at verses 26-27.
Alcohol breaks down inhibitions and restraint. Guys know it and they jest, candy is dandy but liquor is quicker!
Proverb 23:34 - tottering, staggering drunk, can't walk straight, talk straight, or think straight, and yet the commercial calls him the man of distinction.
Proverb 23:35 - They sober up and realize it's wrong, and regret it. They agree with this message, and still say, "I will seek it yet again."
Social drinkers say, just keep it in moderation; just one drink and then put it down. But a wise Chinese proverb goes... First the man takes a drink, then the drink takes a drink, and then the drink takes the man."
Alcohol Mocks the Fools Who Drink It!
According to Proverb 20:1, wine is a mocker. What a mockery for the beer companies to have such control over America. PUT. Barnum made millions on the premise that... "There's a sucker born every minute!" The beer barons are counting on it!
Think with me what a mockery the beer barons make of us:
- At worldly weddings the couple takes their glass and hoists up in the air something which is the most likely thing in the world to destroy their marriage. What a mockery!
- A new baby arrives; same thing; a mockery!
- Superbowl/Athletic events: who's the biggest sponsor? The beer companies! And yet it will ruin an athlete. Connie Mack said, "Alcohol has thrown more men out of baseball than all the umpires put together."
- Beer companies put on commercials bragging about money they give to charities; but they don't talk about the billions they cost U.S. taxpayers. Alcohol deeply hurts those of us who don't drink - in crime, welfare, taxes, insurance rates, et cetera. Experts say that for every dollar beer companies give, it costs us $4 to clean up the mess!
It's a mockery!In the list below, substitute the words in the blank spaces...
People drink for____; but end up____:
happiness; unhappy (for example: people drink for happiness; but end up miserable)
Sleep; can't rest
Strength; become weak
Relaxation; begin shaking
Strike up a conversation; slurred speech
Feel heavenly; Hellish
Forget; forever haunted
Escape; problems multiplied
Cope w/ life; die/suicide
What a mockery alcohol is making of our society! That's the deception!
What's the deliverance?
Proverb 23:31 - don't look at it! Even if you think YOU can handle it, God says, because of all the above, don't even look at it! As Pastor Jack Hyles said in a sermon, "You can't take two drinks of alcohol if you don't take the first."
Back in Proverb 23:20 - Don't associate with alcohol drinkers!
Alcohol is the Devil's substitute for a spirit-filled life.
Ephesians 5:18, "Be not drunk with wine; but be filled with the spirit!"
If you're reading this and you've been a social drinker, please realize that I'm not mad at you. I'm mad at the Devil and his followers who have deceived you. After hearing God's Word on this matter, I'm sure you're mad too! You ought to be! I attended the funeral of a pregnant woman who was killed by a drunk driver years ago. There were two caskets. I cannot tell you what it did to me that day when for the first time in my life, I saw a small casket being lowered into the ground. We always see the full-size caskets on TV, etc; but to see a miniature sized casket being buried into the ground causes one to think about all the blessings of life denied to that child.
The drunk driver lived, unfortunately. I do not wish to see anyone die; but if anyone should die, it's the alcohol-impaired driver. And let me point out something very important while I'm on the subject, MOST alcohol-related accidents involve people who's BAC (Blood Alcohol Content) is within the legal limit of .08 (eight hundredths). This just proves that the legal limit is bogus.
"The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's (NHTSA) position on the relationship between blood alcohol concentration and driving is that driving performance degrades after just one drink."
Every Christian reading this should pour their heart out to God for loved ones bound by the chains of alcohol. You should forward this information along to others, and talk with them.
Only one life 'twill soon be past, only what's done for Christ will last.
The above picture speaks 1,000 words. The beer industry hypocritically tells teens not to drink alcohol until they are 21, while those same companies saturate American culture with booze, booze, booze! Consequently, underaged drinking is an epidemic problem in America!
