revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told
you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom
of God.” —Galatians 5:21
Even if we
believe the Bible permits consumption, what
does wisdom tell us? Truthfully, drinking is
stupid. Here in the United States, there is
absolutely no reason to do it — and, we're
surrounded by reasons not to do it. Alcohol
is a lot more potent today compared to
Jesus' time. Wine in the Bible was naturally
fermented; not fermented using a still as it
is today (which produces a much higher
concentration of alcohol). It doesn't take
much to get drunk these days, depending on
what you are drinking and your tolerance.
Add to this our culture's use of drunkenness
as a form of stress reliever and you have
imminent disaster. Booze is glorified on TV,
radio and is an official staple of college
Alcohol has led many
unsuspecting victims into the SIN of drunkenness. Alcohol
often destroys lives
and families!!! I stood over the grave of a mother and her child, both
killed by a drunk
driver. The drunk driver lived, but he killed a pregnant mother and
her unborn child. It is murder!
thank God for organizations like Mothers Against Drunk Drivers (MADD)
who are doing their best to fight against the evils of alcohol; but God is
against more than just drunk drivers... GOD HATES BOOZE, THE SALOON, AND
THE ENTIRE BEER INDUSTRY.
"The saloon is the sum of all villainies. It is worse than war or
pestilence. It is the crime of crimes. It is the parent of
crimes and the mother of sins. It is the appalling source of misery
and crime in the land. And to license such an incarnate fiend of hell
is the dirtiest, low-down, damnable business on top of this old earth."
-Billy Sunday (Quoted from the
sermon, The Curse of the Saloon)
DYING UNDER THE INFLUENCE
(a 12 part video series exposing the evils of alcohol)
Beer is extremely dangerous because it contains
less alcohol than stronger drinks such as whiskey. Beer drinkers are
under a FALSE sense of security and are likely to consume much more alcohol. The
alcohol barons are liars and won't tell the truth to the public.
Most deaths caused by alcohol are directly the result of BEER drinking; not
In addition, most alcohol-related accidents involve
drivers with a BAC (Blood Alcohol Concentration) under .08 (the legal
limit). A 13-year old girl was recently struck and killed by an
alcohol-impaired driver in our neighborhood. His BAC was .06, so
legally he couldn't be charged with drunk driving, even though he was
stumbling from his car and talking in mumble.
Alcohol has PROVEN to be a menace to our society. America needs Billy Sundays to rise up all
across this once great nation, preaching uncompromisingly hard and loud
sermons against the evils of booze. Truly, alcohol has
earned the name LIQUID DEVIL.

| Alcohol (The untold story!)
Drinking alcohol is a
fool's game of Russian-roulette! No one ever says, "Hey, I want to
kill somebody today while under the influence of Alcohol." Yet,
hundreds-of-thousands of people every year die in America because of
alcohol-related accidents. Or was it an accident? Drunk driving is no
Drunkenness and the End of the Age
Social drinking is not the solution to the
problem of alcoholism. Rather the social glass is the starting point of the
majority of alcoholics.
If legal age barriers are eliminated in the
sale of alcoholic beverages, and boys and girls are encouraged to drink in
the homes, in society, and at church sponsored functions, what would be the
result ? There would be increased slaughter on our highways due to drunken
driving including that of teenage drivers. The national crime bill, already
the highest on record, will be greatly increased.
As strong drink destroys the mind and body and
removes all moral inhibitions, the nation would be further weakened to
subversive forces boring from within. The rich owners of huge liquor
monopolies and big investors will become richer still as families are
reduced to abject poverty, and youth winds up in a gutter. Increased
drunkenness is one of the given signs of the last days: "But ye,
brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a
thief... Therefore let us not sleep, as do others, but let us watch and be
sober. For they that sleep sleep in the night; and they that be drunken are
drunken in the night. But let us, who are of the day be sober... For God
hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus
Christ" (1st Thessalonians 5:4-9).
Those who are drunken in the night are not the
children of light. Only the children of light are appointed to obtain
salvation. Those who are of the night and darkness including drunkards, are
appointed to wrath. What will drunkards do, when in the last great war of
this age, the vintage is cut off, and there is no more wine? They will awake
and weep and howl as forecast by the prophets. (Joel 1:5; Isaiah 24:1)
In view of His sudden return, Jesus specifically warned Christians, saying "Take
heed to yourselves, lest at any time your hearts be overcharged with
surfeiting, and drunkenness, and cares of this life, and so that day come
upon you unawares" (Luke21:34). But sad to say, many do not heed this
warning. Likewise there are ministers today, who, like the householder in
Jesus' parable, have said in their hearts, "My Lord delayeth His coming,"
and are now engaged in smiting their fellowservants and eating and drinking
with the drunken. Upon such, the Lord will come in an hour when they think
not, and shall appoint their portion with the hypocrites where "...there
shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth (Matthew 24.51).

That's $166,543,000,000! It
cost the American people $166,543,000,000 in 1995 because of the evils
associated with alcohol. That adds up to trillions of wasted dollars
every decade! So many people question the sinfulness of
alcohol itself. Don't look at the alcohol, look at the statistics! Look at what evils are caused by the consumption of alcohol!
people wake up to the evils of alcohol when their
child gets plowed into by a drunkard. When you see your child's head
cracked open, with brains hanging out, with blood splattered all over the
street, and some drunk fool behind the wheel doesn't even know what just
happened... then maybe you'll hate booze like God does.
I watched a man run a
knife clear through his hand while cutting a rubber hose because he had too
much alcohol to drink. And that's the great deception, how much
alcohol is too much? It's a fact that many accidents involving alcohol
are committed by drunks within the legal limit of 0.08 BAC. So legally
they are not considered "drunk." It is wickedness.
A drunk driver crashed into a
school bus filled with children.
"I am the sworn,
eternal and uncompromising enemy of the liquor traffic. I have been, and will go
on, fighting that damnable, dirty, rotten business with all the power at my
command. I shall ask no quarter from that gang, and they shall get none from
me." —Billy Sunday (from
The Curse of Liquor!)
"And take heed to
yourselves, lest at any time your hearts be overcharged with surfeiting, and
drunkenness, and cares of this life, and so that day come upon you
unawares." —Luke 21:34
So many people turn to booze to escape their
problems. "Wine, women, and song" is the old saying. Today, the
saying is "Sex, drugs, and Rock 'N' Roll." Well, God is against immoral
sex, drug abuse and Satanic music. God is against booze because of
what it does to society.
"Wine is a mocker, strong drink is raging: and whosoever is deceived thereby
is not wise...Bread of deceit is sweet to a man; but afterwards his mouth
shall be filled with gravel." —Proverb 20:1,17
(a pathetic website), the beer industry crows about contributions to
society by supplying jobs, economic development, and charitable donations,
and the most important part, beer, "America's beverage." For the beer
industry to attempt to paint a pretty picture of their wickedness is an
abomination unto God. It would be like Hitler saying that the
holocaust was good because it provided many Germans with jobs, soap, wigs,
and less traffic during rush hour. It is insanity for the beer
industry to whitewash their works of darkness (Ephesians 5:11).
beer industry is a whited sepulcher filled with dead man's bones (Matthew
23:27). Liquor, booze, alcohol, beer, whiskey, Jack Daniel's,
Smirnoff... call it whatever you want... IT'S ALL STRAIGHT FROM HELL! God is against drunk drivers! God is against all drunkards! God is against alcohol being used as a
recreational activity. And we all
know someone with an alcohol problem. Booze is LIQUID DEVIL!
In 1998 alone...41,471 people lost
their lives in tragic car collisions. Of those collisions, over 15,938 were
related to alcohol. More then 305,000 people were injured in alcohol
related collisions. Estimated costs relating to EACH alcohol-related
fatality collision are about $900,000 (and $20,000 for EACH non-fatality injury
collision). This includes court costs, insurance pay outs and
Nearly 1/2 of all alcohol related
collisions are among drivers 21 to 35.
December tops the list as deadliest of
months to drive. Deaths go up due to alcohol consumption during the holidays as
well as worsened weather.
I'm tired of hearing the
godless alcohol industry propagate the dangerous advice not to drink and drive.
People shouldn't drink alcohol at all. Listen folks, a drunk person is out
of their mind, what's to stop them from getting into their car and driving?
That's right, in MOST cases, NOTHING. This BEST ADVICE is NOT to drink
alcohol in any form at all.
Don't' Drink at All!
You Can't take
the second drink if you don't take the first!
More Alcohol Statistics
Proving that Beer Should be Outlawed!
Alcohol involvement remains the leading factor in motor vehicle deaths.
Only 7 percent of all crashes involve alcohol use, but nearly 39 percent of
fatal crashes do. (NHTSA, 1999)
Traffic crashes are the greatest single cause of death for every age from
six through 33. Almost half of these fatalities are in alcohol-related
crashes. (NHTSA, 1999)
Approximately 18% of all drivers involved in fatal crashes in 1998 were
intoxicated at the time of their crash (21% in 1993). (NHTSA, 1999)
In single-vehicle fatal crashes occurring on weekend nights in 1998,
72.3% of the fatally injured driver's 25 years old or older were intoxicated,
as compared with 57.7% of drivers under the age of 25. (NHTSA, 1995)
In 1998, 29% of all fatal crashes during the week were alcohol-related,
compared to 52% on weekends. For all crashes, the alcohol involvement
rate was 5% during the week and 12% during the weekend. (NHTSA,
It is estimated that 2.6 million drunk driving crashes each year victimize 4
million innocent people who are injured or have their vehicles damaged.
(Miller ET al, 1996b)
In 1993, one in 100 drivers had a BAC of .10 or greater. About 16 billion
miles were driven drunk. (Miller et al, 1996c)
In fatal crashes, the proportion of drivers who were intoxicated (blood
alcohol content of .10 or greater) decreased from 25% in 1988 to 18% in
1998, a 28% decrease in that proportion. (NHTSA, 1999)
The highest intoxication rates in fatal crashes in 1996 were recorded for
driver's 21-24 years old, followed by ages 25-34 and 35-44. These three
groups have shown the smallest reductions since 1985. (NHTSA, 1999)
Male drivers involved in fatal crashes were nearly twice as likely to have
been intoxicated (21.8%) than were females (11.2%). (NHTSA, 1996)
Men are four times more likely than women to drive after drinking (Miller
et al, 1996c)
In 1995, there were 11,723 fatally injured drivers in single vehicle crashes.
About 46.7% were intoxicated. (NHTSA, 1996)
The highest intoxication rates in fatal crashes in 1998 were recorded for
drivers 21-24 years old (28%), followed by ages 25-34 (24%) and 35-44
(21%). (NHTSA, 1999)
Nearly a third of males (31%) drive after drinking in the past year,
compared with only 13% of females. (NHTSA, 1996)
Drivers age 21 to 29 drive the greatest proportion of their miles drunk
(Miller et al., 1996c)
More than 2,300 anti-drunk driving laws have been passed since 1980.
