q.gif (1639 bytes)   Should a Christian ever be involved in the manufacturing, distribution, or sale of alcoholic beverages?  If so, when?  What about a Christian waiting tables in a restaurant where alcohol is served?


a.gif (1659 bytes)       Proverbs 23:20 says, "Be not among winebibbers; among riotous eaters of flesh." A "winebibber" is someone who is "imbibing" or "drinking" alcohol. The Bible says not to be among those who are drinking alcohol, so a Christian should not wait tables (or even attend places) where alcoholic drinks are served.

Proverbs 20:1 says, "Wine is a mocker, strong drink is raging: and whosoever is deceived thereby is not wise." To be involved in the manufacture, distribution, or sale of alcohol is to make money off from mocking people and causing them to be fools. We are commanded, "Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself" (Matthew 22:39). A Christian cannot fulfil the spirit of Matthew 22:39, while being involved in the making or selling of alcohol.
