The Japanese and Alcohol


The bible does not prohibit the drinking of alcohol but warns against drunkenness. It doesn’t command complete or total abstinence but emphasizes it. Japanese have a rightly worded proverb on alcohol:

First the man takes a drink, then the drink takes a drink, then the drink takes the man. ~ Japanese Proverb

    But how can we reach the culture unless we become like them? (sarcasm)

    Where does the Bible “emphasize” complete abstinance?

      It emphasizes abstinence but drinking alcohol in itself is not a sin. Drunkenness is!
