Alcohol: The Most Dangerous Drug!

by David J. Stewart

“I tell you that the curse of God Almighty is on the saloon.” —Billy Sunday

Alcohol is the most dangerous drug when you look at the overall damages to society and individuals. Booze is far more common, since it is legal and glamorized, than illegal drugs or other forms of substance abuse.

Alcohol has led many unsuspecting victims into the SIN of drunkenness (Galatians 5:21). And drunkenness leads to every sin imaginable (Proverb 23:29-35). Booze destroys lives!!! 

I stood over the graves of a mother and her child, both murdered by a drunk driver. The drunk driver lived, but he murdered a pregnant mother and her unborn child. I saw the father's uncontrollable tears. I saw the heartbroken family.

I saw the little white coffin being lowered into a small grave alongside it's mother. That is something I will never forget. Alcohol is inherently EVIL! 

One of the biggest problems is corporate greed that has made booze a Madison Avenue product, marketing beer to America's youth as something they cannot live without. Beer commercials feature young, healthy, and energetic people having fun while drinking booze.

It sends the wrong message to young people. The message conveyed by beer advertisements is that drinking alcohol brings social acceptance and good times.

In reality booze brings addiction to people who NEVER intended to become addicted. Alcohol is highly addictive, which is reason enough to abstain from it completely. I've seen alcohol addiction drive men to steal, drink paint-thinner, and get drunk with every dollar they could get their hands on. The Bible is filled with Scriptures condemning alcohol drinking...

Isaiah 24:9, “They shall not drink wine with a song; strong drink shall be bitter to them that drink it.”

Alcohol brings death and destruction, but the beer companies never show you that. The Devil always shows young people the neon lights, not the rehabilitation centers and graveyards. Jesus said that the Devil is a liar, thief, and murderer who only comes to kill, steal, and destroy (John 10:10; 8:44).

Television is a powerful tool. Beer companies are as subtle as the Devil, attempting to shirk off any legal liability by placing a fine print message at the end of their commercials saying, “Drink responsibly.” May I say, there is no responsible way to drink booze. Even one drink alters a person's mind chemically, whether they realize it or not. One drink usually leads to two and then three. All it takes is ONE TIME. Many people who have handled their alcohol drinking for years, end up hurting or killing someone while drunk.

Years ago I worked with a big rugged man named Dean. He was in his late 20's and originally from Iowa. He had been drinking one day and I watched him run a knife through into his hand. His thumb was dangling. One day Dean came into work and told me that his best friend sued him in court. Dean had been drinking and got into an accident. His friend was in the passenger's seat and was severely injured. Dean's buddy sued him in court and was awarded $19,000 in damages. The court garnished Dean's wages for years to come. That is the reality of what alcohol does to people, the reality that beer companies refuse to tell people.

Granted, Dean is mostly to blame, but the beer companies are also to blame, since they lure youth into the alcohol lifestyle. Men think that they are without fault if the law stands behind their evils, but that is not the way God sees it. Abortion is murder! It matters not that the wicked Supreme Court, nor evil Planned Parenthood, nor the murdering abortionist, says taking a baby's life is fine and acceptable. God said, “THOU SHALT NOT KILL!” (Exodus 20:13). Likewise, the Bible says that drunkenness is a sin (1st Corinthians 6:10; Galatians 5:21). Drunkenness is NOT defined by man's .08 BAC limit, but by one's words and actions while under the influence of alcohol. Many people says horrible things when they drink beer, and do things that they normally wouldn't do. God will hold every beer drinker accountable for everything they do or even say (Matthew 12:36) while under the influence of alcohol.

To say that it is ok for a person to drink beer, when God said that drunkenness is a sin, makes no sense. The Bible refers to intoxicating wine as “strong drink.” Proverb 20:1 condemns consuming strong drink of any sort. Today's beer is highly intoxicating in comparison to the naturally fermented grape juice in Biblical times. The Bible plainly commands in Proverb 23:29 not to look upon the wine when it is red, when it moveth itself alright.

One man got drunk, beat his wife, took a knife and cut his son's head off in the kitchen. When the father sobered up the next day in a prison cell, he didn't believe what he was being charged with. He didn't even remember what he had done. Listen to the red-hot sermon for yourself, Alcohol: Public Enemy # 1.

There are many subtle and subliminal methods used to promote booze to people...

...the beer companies that aim their advertising mainly at poor members of minority groups use the cobra, bull, dragon, tiger, stallion and pit bull to convey their messages. “The idea is to sell wildness and power to the powerless.” (U. S. News & World Report, “Hostility among the icecubes,” July 15, 1991.)

Isn't that sad? Beer companies target the poor and minority groups, deceiving them into believing that drinking beer will empower them. In reality, drinking beer diminishes a person's ability to think clearly, and causes them to lose control with each drink. Beer does the exact opposite of what the beer companies allude, rendering the victim powerless.

American culture has been INDOCTRINATED by television and music to love booze. From Katy Perry's lyrics WE DROVE TO CALI AND GOT DRUNK, to Toby Keith's LET'S GET DRUNK AND BE SOMEBODY, American culture glorifies drinking alcohol. Television is saturated with people drinking beer, making beer-drinking look like such a wonderful activity. They never show you the hospitals, prisons, and morgues; but rather, the glamorous nightlife, lots of friends, and people having a fun time drinking booze. The Devil is a beautiful liar! All of Satan's apples have worms! Sin will always take you further than you planned to go, keep you longer than you intended to stay, and cost you more than you wanted to pay.

Another big problem is parents and family relatives who drink booze and set bad examples for kids to follow. Adults can preach all they want about abstinence from drugs and beer, but teens are going to do as their parents do. The biggest hypocrisy in the world are people who go around saying “say no to drugs,” while guzzling beer by the gallons.

Illegal drugs are everywhere in America today. Honolulu, Hawaii (on the island of Oahu) is a drug-crazed place infested with crime because of illegal drugs. How do all those drugs get to an isolated island 2,500 miles from any sizeable landmass? Everything goes through customs. Gary Webb was murdered for exposing the CIA's involvement bringing illegal drugs into America's cities. Faithful Representatives in Congress; such as Maxine Waters, Ron Paul, and Cynthia McKinney, have all said they believe the government is bringing illegal drugs into the country. Ninety-percent of the world's heroine (opium) is grown in Afghanistan, where U.S. troops are stationed as opium farmers. Russia has called repeatedly for destruction of the opium in Afghanistan, because of the 70,000 heroine deaths every year in Russia. NATO said no, and the heroine problem continues. The street value of the heroine coming from Afghanistan is worth over $500,000,000,000.

I thank God for organizations like Mother 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 ALCOHOL, THE SALOON, AND THE ENTIRE BEER INDUSTRY.

"Who hath woe? who hath sorrow? who hath contentions? who hath babbling? who hath wounds without cause? who hath redness of eyes? They that tarry long at the wine; they that go to seek mixed wine. 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. Yea, thou shalt be as he that lieth down in the midst of the sea, or as he that lieth upon the top of a mast. They have stricken me, shalt thou say, and I was not sick; they have beaten me, and I felt it not: when shall I awake? I will seek it yet again." —Proverb 23:29-35

Alcohol is more dangerous than crystal meth or heroine, when you look at the consequences of beer on society and individuals overall. The costs to taxpayers have been staggering. Alcohol is a menace to society...

Alcohol 'more harmful than heroin' says Prof David Nutt

Alcohol is more harmful than heroin or crack when the overall dangers to the individual and society are considered, according to a study in the Lancet.

The report is co-authored by Professor David Nutt, the former government chief drugs adviser who was sacked in 2009.

It ranked 20 drugs on 16 measures of harm to users and to wider society.

Heroin, crack and crystal meth were deemed worst for individuals, with alcohol, heroin and crack cocaine worst for society, and alcohol worst overall.

The study by the Independent Scientific Committee on Drugs also said tobacco and cocaine were judged to be equally harmful, while ecstasy and LSD were among the least damaging.

Harm score

Professor Nutt refused to leave the drugs debate when he was sacked from his official post by the former Labour Home Secretary, Alan Johnson.

He went on to form the Independent Scientific Committee on Drugs, which says it aims to investigate the drug issue without any political interference.

One of its other members is Dr Les King, another former government adviser who quit over Prof Nutt's treatment.

Members of the group, joined by two other experts, scored each drug for harms including mental and physical damage, addiction, crime and costs to the economy and communities.

Graphic comparing the harmfulness of various substances

The study involved 16 criteria, including a drug's affects on users' physical and mental health, social harms including crime, "family adversities" and environmental damage, economic costs and "international damage."

'Valid and necessary'

The findings run contrary to the government's long-established drug classification system, but the paper's authors argue that their system - based on the consensus of experts - provides an accurate assessment of harm for policy makers.

"Our findings lend support to previous work in the UK and the Netherlands, confirming that the present drug classification systems have little relation to the evidence of harm," the paper says.

"They also accord with the conclusions of previous expert reports that aggressively targeting alcohol harms is a valid and necessary public health strategy."

In 2007, Prof Nutt and colleagues undertook a limited attempt to create a harm ranking system, sparking controversy over the criteria and the findings.

The new, more complex, system ranked alcohol as three times more harmful than cocaine or tobacco. Ecstasy was ranked as causing one-eighth the harm of alcohol.

It also contradicted the Home Office's decision to make the so-called legal high mephedrone a Class B drug, saying that alcohol was five times more harmful.

The rankings have been published to coincide with a conference on drugs policy, organised by Prof Nutt's committee.

'Extraordinary lengths'

Prof Nutt told the BBC: "Overall, alcohol is the most harmful drug because it's so widely used.

"Crack cocaine is more addictive than alcohol but because alcohol is so widely used there are hundreds of thousands of people who crave alcohol every day, and those people will go to extraordinary lengths to get it."

He said it was important to separate harm to individuals and harm to society.

Government advisor Professor David Nutt likens the effects of alcohol to a range of other drugs including heroin.

The Lancet paper written by Prof Nutt, Dr King and Dr Lawrence Phillips, does not examine the harm caused to users by taking more than one drug at a time.

Gavin Partington, of the Wine and Spirit Trade Association, said alcohol abuse affected "a minority" who needed "education, treatment and enforcement".

Mr Partington, who is the spokesman for the Wine and Spirit Trade Association, said millions of people enjoyed alcohol "as part of a regular and enjoyable social drink".

"Clearly alcohol misuse is a problem in the country and our real fear is that, by talking in such extreme terms, Professor Nutt and his colleagues risk switching people off from considering the real issues and the real action that is needed to tackle alcohol misuse," he said.

"We are talking about a minority. We need to focus policy around that minority, which is to do with education, treatment and enforcement."

A Home Office spokesman said: "Our priorities are clear - we want to reduce drug use, crack down on drug-related crime and disorder and help addicts come off drugs for good."


Beer destroys lives! Why should the non-alcohol drinking citizens in America have to pay for the reckless and irresponsible behavior of many of those who DO drink alcohol? Alcohol-related accidents cost the U.S. economy billions-upon-billions of dollars every year. Why hasn't congress stepped in to put an end to this evil? I think the following quote says it all...

"Alcohol and bribery always go together (Isaiah 5:23-23). The pious hypocrite Rockefeller was a member of the Anti-Saloon League and actually donated money to the prohibition cause ($350,000 worth!). He HATED the booze business because he did not control it!!

When prohibition was enacted in 1920, he bought up all the distilleries and wineries at a pittance. Then when prohibition was repealed by Rockefeller stooge Roosevelt in 1933, the booze money began to flow into the Rockefeller coffers. That is why the Rockefeller owned newspapers are constantly telling people that alcohol is GOOD for you. They know that you will soon be visiting the Rockefeller controlled "doctors" and be using Rockefeller "drugs" to cure you. That is why "doctors" in the U.S. are not trying to stop the alcohol/poison business which is the main cause of illness and death in the country." SOURCE

"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

Facts Prove the Deceptive Nature of Booze

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. Most deaths caused by alcohol are directly the result of BEER drinking, not hard liquor. ALL types of alcoholic drinks need to be banned from American society. America needs Billy Sundays to rise up all across this once great nation, preaching uncompromisingly hard and loud against the sin of drinking alcohol.

God hates beer because it causes so much misery, death, and heartbreak.

"The American mongoose is the open licensed saloon. It eats the carpets off the floor and the clothes from off your back, your money out of the bank, and it eats up character, and it goes on until at last it leaves a stranded wreck in the home, a skeleton of what was once brightness and happiness." —Evangelist Billy Sunday

Don't be fooled friend, death and tragedy are knocking at your door if you are a beer drinker. It's just a matter of time.

Faces Of Drunk Driving!

Every Face Tells A Story

Teens Drink One-Fifth of U.S. Alcohol!

Flying and Alcohol

Beer Soaks America (exposing the lying propaganda of the beer industry)

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!
