It is not a sin to drink alcohol in moderation. The Bible describes wine as a gift from God that can make life more enjoyable. (Psalm 104:14, 15; Ecclesiastes 3:13; 9:7)

The Bible also acknowledges the medicinal value of wine.—1 Timothy 5:23.

Jesus drank wine during his time on earth. (Matthew 26:29; Luke 7:34) In one of his well-known miracles, Jesus turned water into wine as a generous gift at a marriage feast.—John 2:1-10.

Dangers of Overdrinking:

While the Bible mentions the positive aspects of wine, it condemns overdrinking and drunkenness. Thus, a Christian who chooses to drink alcohol would do so only in moderation. (1 Timothy 3:8; Titus 2:2, 3)

Overdrinking impairs thinking ability and judgment. (Proverbs 23:29-35) An intoxicated person cannot fulfill the Bible’s command to “present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, a sacred service with your power of reason"

Overdrinking removes inhibitions and “the motivation to do what is right.”—Hosea 4:11;Ephesians 5:18.

It can lead to poverty and serious health problems.

Heavy drinking and drunkenness displease God.—Proverbs 23:20; Galatians 5:19-21.
