Jesus Drank Wine

 

Dear Brother Ron

 

Jesus drank wine. Wouldn't this make him imperfect? Why would an already "perfect" being alter their consciousness with alcohol?

 

Mike

 

Dear Mike

 

Jesus did not drink wine to get drunk. In those days, wine was an important part of the diet. There was a very good reason for this. Adequate water sanitation did not exist at that time. Many lakes and waterways were little more than open sewers. The fermenting and distilling of wine kills the bacteria. The people back then may not have known about bacteria but they sure knew about diarrhea.

 

Best always

Brother Ron
