drinking a vintage mr. pibb [09 Mar 2004|03:42pm]

               

so the obviously out-dated drink machine here at the Davie County Administrative Building currently sells canned drinks for 50 cents, not 55, not 60 or the oh so typical 65 cents, but yes 50. i dropped the two quarters in the machine and had a sudden burst of insight "why the heck is this Pibb Extra crap all about" and then low and behold i retrieve my precious beverage....a MR. PIBB the old fashion slogan, the real deal, THE GREAT BAMBINO!!! holy crap. davie county is out dated and so is this drink. i am sipping on a transparent brown liquid as i see the thick sugary syrup slug around the bottom of my can this is great. this tastes like 1994. i am charlie. i've found the golden ticket. i have done it.

O Shachah, where did you go?
O Shachah, where did you go?
We bow our heads and bend our knees,
in a legalistic state of mind.
But if nothing happens in wardly,
we're only wasting our time.

We won't sing what we're supposed to.
We will sing what we have to.

A time is coming and now has come,
to worship in spirit and truth.

Never mind the songs we've sung,
our hearts now must carry the tune.

We wont sing what we're supposed to.
We will sing what we have to.

O Shachah, where did we go to?
O Shachah, we're coming back to you.

Come let us bow our hearts.

[ mood | exhausted ]

Yeah, so there has been a lot of talk about next year and college and all, everyone seems to be getting very excited. All the parties, all the substance, all the promiscuity--ain't life grand. The question has been asked, yes it has come up and yes I am sticking to my guns. Many seemed puzzled/ doubtful as I boast indeed I am not going to change or rationalize my thinking as far as parties, drinking etc. I don't enjoy it, it's not me, it's not what i do, therefore, why would i? Yeah i have beliefs and yeah they do play a part. I know what i'm here to do, i know why i'm hear and giving into the things i currently abstain from would ruin everything, my dreams, my goals, my purpose.

During my Psychology class last year there was a lot of talk about whether we make our own decision instinctively or whether our environment contributes to our morals and behavior. I began to think a lot about this, especially since i found myself sticking to convictions, yet, not having any true information to back them up other than "that's just what i believe". The main reason i have chosen not to drink is because as i christian i feel i can't serve both my desires to drink and satisfy my flesh as well as devote my life to making a positive impact on the world through love and compassion--which i have experienced in my christian walk. I try my best to read the Bible often and really take account to what i read, and of the verses talking about alcohol, i don't see how i can drink and still keep the same view of life.

There are 637 references to wine, drink and drinking in the King James Version of the Bible. Most people think in today’s terms, believing that when wine is mentioned it refers to alcoholic wine. Actually, that is not necessarily true. Thirteen different words are translated "wine" in the King James Version of the Bible. The word wine has a wide range of meaning in the Bible, covering everything from grape juice, to concentrated grape syrup to alcoholic wine. To understand what the Bible has to say about drinking, we need to look at several of these words.

OLD TESTAMENT HEBREW WORDS FOR WINE

"yayin" -- It is a general term for grape beverages and includes all classes of wine, non-alcoholic or alcoholic; unfermented, in the process of fermentation and fermented. (Proverbs 31:4) The context will show whether it is alcoholic wine or not. Yayin, when used properly was always diluted with water.

"shekar" -- It is the word for strong drink, unmixed wine. The 1901 edition of THE JEWISH ENCYCLOPEDIA says, "Yakin, wine, is to be distinguished from Shekar, or strong drink. The former is diluted with water; the later is undiluted." Shekar was not diluted with water." (see Numbers 28:7)

"Tirosh" -- This word refers to fresh grape juice. It is referred to often as new wine or sweet wine. (see Proverbs 3:10; Deuteronomy 7:13)


NEW TESTAMENT GREEK WORDS FOR WINE

"oinos" is the counterpart to the Old Testament word yayin. It is a general term for grape beverages and includes all classes of wine, non-alcoholic or alcoholic; fermented or unfermented. The context has to be used to determine whether the drink was intoxicating or not. (Luke 10:34; Ephesians 5:18). Oinos, when used properly was always diluted with water.

"sikera" is the counterpart to the Old Testament word shekar. It is the word for strong drink, unmixed wine. (Luke 1:15)

"gleukos" is the counterpart to the Old Testament word tirosh. It refers to fresh wine, a new wine or freshly squeezed grape juice.

Now, why believers should abstain from drinking...

In the April 24, 1965 issue of Christianity Today, the article, on page 25 says, "People must be informed that the use of alcohol is not unlike Russian roulette: every tenth person becomes automatically hooked. the only solution is total abstinence." These statistics are supported by the American Medical Association.

DRUNKENNESS IS CONDEMNED IN THE BIBLE

Isaiah 5:11-- "Woe unto them that rise up early in the morning, that they may follow strong drink; that continue until night, till wine inflame them!"

Proverbs 23:20-- "Be not among winebibbers;" The word means to drink so much that you become tipsy or drunk.

Romans 13:13 -- "Let us walk honestly, as in the day; not in rioting (drunken partying) and drunkenness (general drunken-ness)..."

Galatians 5:19a & 21 -- "Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these...drunkenness..."

Ephesians 5:18 -- "And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled with the Spirit;"


DRUNKARDS ARE AMONG THE LIST OF THOSE WHO WILL NOT INHERIT THE KINGDOM OF GOD.

I Corinthians 6:9-11 (key verse 10) - 1 Corinthians 6:9-10 "Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: …drunkards…, shall inherit the kingdom of God."

You can’t get around it, and in fact, all godly men agree that the Bible condemns drunkenness. Drunkenness is a serious matter

THE BIBLE CONDEMNS STRONG DRINK ALSO
Proverbs 20:1 "Wine is a mocker, strong drink is raging: and whosoever is deceived thereby is not wise."

NOTE again, Isaiah 5:11 -- "Woe unto them that rise up early in the morning, that they may follow strong drink; that continue until night, till wine inflame them!"

Proverbs 23:29-31 -- "Who hath woe? who hath sorrow? who hath contentions? who hath babbling? who hath wounds without cause? who hath redness of eyes? (30) They that tarry long at the wine; they that go to seek mixed wine.(a mixture of wine and spices) (31) Look not thou upon the wine when it is red, when it giveth his colour in the cup, when it moveth itself aright."

WHAT WAS "STRONG DRINK" IN BIBLE TIMES?

Distillation was not discovered until about 1500 A.D. Strong drink and unmixed wine in Bible times was from 3% to 11% alcohol. Dr. John MacArthur says "...since anybody in biblical times who drank unmixed wine (9-11% alcohol) was definitely considered a barbarian, then we don’t even need to discuss whether a Christian should drink hard liquor--that is apparent!"

Since wine has 9 to 11% alcohol and one brand 20% alcohol, you should not drink that. Brandy contains 15 to 20% alcohol, so that’s out! Hard liquor has 40 to 50% alcohol (80 to 100 proof), and that is obviously excluded!

IN BIBLE TIMES WHAT CHRISTIANS DRANK WS SUB-ALCOHOLIC, BASICALLY PURIFIED WATER
Remember the Hebrew word "yayin" and the Greek word "oinos" that we looked at earlier? These were the companion words for wine whether fermented or unfermented. In fact, whether fermented or not, it was MIXED WITH WATER.

Norman Geisler, former Dean of Liberty Center for Christian Scholarship, Liberty University, has written: "Many wine drinking Christians today mistakenly assume that what the New Testament meant by wine is identical to wine used today. This, however, is false. In fact, today’s wine is by Biblical definition strong drink, and hence forbidden by the Bible. What the Bible frequently meant by wine was basically purified water," purified by adding some alcoholic wine. The Holman Bible dictionary says, wine was also used as a medicine and disinfectant.

Geisler goes on to say, "Therefore, Christians ought not to drink wine, beer, or other alcoholic beverages for they are actually strong drink forbidden in Scripture. Even ancient pagans did not drink what some Christians drink today."

All alcoholic beverages used in our culture fall under the biblical classification of STRONG DRINK and are therefore forbidden. The least ratio of water to wine mixture used in Bible times was 3 parts water to 1 wine. That produced a sub-alcoholic drink that was 2.5% to 2.75% alcohol. Normally, the ratio was even higher, up to 20 to 1. Their is NO BIBLICAL SUPPORT FOR CHRISTIANS DRINKING THE ALCOHOLIC BEVERAGES OF OUR DAY. What early believers drank was sub-alcoholic by today’s standards. Pastors and deacons were cautioned to steer around even the sub-alcoholic stuff (I Timothy 3:3 & 8).

The problem is, drinking often sets off a chain reaction of influences that are like tipping over the first domino. Drinking causes some to stumble, others to be offended, and many to be weakened. Studies support my statement.

According to a survey done by the Daily Journal newspaper, October 26, 1988, one of the top five reasons teenagers drink is because their parents drink. This has proven true time and time again.

The Bible defines drinking as an activity that is to be foregone because it causes others to stumble and makes them weak (fall into sin).

The first effect of alcohol on the brain is to dull the capacity for self-criticism and the sense of caution. A lessening of care and anxiety follows this. The checks on irresponsibility and unreasonable behavior are also curtailed. Actions follow the impulses, which is dangerous. Reaction time become slower; coordination is disturbed; drowsiness follows.

Proverbs 23:29-33 gives clear testimony to the above description of alcohol on the brain. "Who hath woe? who hath sorrow? who hath contentions? who hath babbling? who hath wounds without cause? who hath redness of eyes? 30 They that tarry long at the wine; they that go to seek mixed wine. 31 Look not thou upon the wine when it is red, when it giveth his colour in the cup, when it moveth itself aright. 32 At the last it biteth like a serpent, and stingeth like an adder. 33 Thine eyes shall behold strange women, and thine heart shall utter perverse things."

"The most drastic and noticed effect of alcohol is the brain. It depresses brain centers, progressively produces uncoordination, confusion, disorientation, stupor, anesthesia, coma, death. Alcohol kills brain cells, and brain damage is permanent" (From-Office of Highway Safety, Madison, WI)

There is a further reason you should not drink...

ALCOHOL IS ADDICTIVE
I Corinthians 6:12 tells us that we are not to "be brought under the power" or to be controlled by anything. The only exception is the Holy Spirit. (Ephesians 5:18)

Alcohol is clearly a powerful substance (Proverbs 23:35). Because alcohol is addictive, we should choose not to drink alcoholic beverages.

The final reason we will consider for not drinking alcoholic beverages is...

BELIEVERS ARE KINGS AND PRIESTS SEPARATED UNTO GOD
"The prophets, the kings, the Nazarites, the leaders -- those who were special in the plan of God were total abstainers" Kings and public officials were not to drink (Proverbs 31:4-5) "the priests of the Old Testament were to abstain totally." The Aaronic priests were not to drink because they ministered in the tabernacle before the Lord (Leviticus 10:9)

The application: Believers are a "royal" or kingly priesthood (I Peter 2:9). We are the temple of God (I Peter 2:5). We are God’s special children and should choose total abstinence.

Drinking, even social drinking, cannot be legitimately supported by the Bible. Every drink that is available today, even beer, falls into the category of unmixed or strong drink. Drinking socially is a worldly activity and in light of the fact that believers are neither to be conformed to the world (Romans 12:2) nor love the world(I John 2:15) our choice should be clear. We ARE to be SEPARATE FROM the world (II Corinthians 6:17) and LIGHT TO the world (Ephesians 5:8; Phillipians 2:15). Perhaps social drinking has enhanced the acceptability of Christians in society, but it has not advanced the cause of Christ, and it does not glorify God. Social drinking is simply a means which the devil uses to blunt our testimony for Christ and ruin our purpose.

This isn't an attack on anyone who drinks whether Christian or non-Christian, it is merely an explanation for why i have chosen not to do so. I personally, aside from all the fun, usually always see hurt and heartache associated with drinking, someone always gets hurts, people always say the wrong thing, and that isn't want for myself, or anyone for that matter. Wow it's getting late, i started this like two hours ago...whoa but yeah i hope this helps with understanding and whether you agree or disagree thanks. Go see the movie The Passion of The Christ.

X christ X edge X

_i_walk_in_patterns_ [20 Jan 2004|03:02pm]
i walk in patterns
merely to avoid the cracks (discrepancies in my path)
akin to a child i walk timidly
i mustn’t break this progress
for i have done so well, ventured far and without fault
my sole embraces the fissure, i start over

i live in patterns
hindsight aside, it seems dynamic
avoiding obstacles that breach the foundation of my dreams
i wish to be succinct in living
but i orbit the burdens, never face them
my soul embraces the fissure, i start over

i pray in patterns
for no other reason than i am in need
i go in blind and come out healed
with greater knowledge? not necessarily
yet i can breathe deep breaths
my God embraces the fissures, i press onward

!!!BANG!!!

.footprints.

"one night a man had a dream
he dreamed that he was walking
along the beach with the lord.
across the sky flashed
scenes from his life.
for each scene he noticed two
sets of footprints in the sand:
one belonging to him,
and the other to the lord.
when the last scene of his life
flashed before him, he looked
back at the footprints in the sand.
he noticed that many times along
the path of his life there
was only one set of footprints.
he also noticed that it happened
at the very lowest and saddest
times in his life.
this really bothered him and
he questioned the lord about it.
"lord, you said that once i
decided to follow you, you'd
walk with me all the way.
but i noticed that during
the most troublesome times in
my life, there is only one
set of footprints.
i dont understand why when
i needed you most you would
leave me."
the lord replied: "my son, my
precious child, i love you
and i would never leave you.
during your times of trial
and suffering, when you see
only one set of footprints,
it was then that i carried you."

_simplistic_analysis_ [13 Jan 2004|04:12pm]
I've been reading The Purpose Driven Life and it has really got me thinking. In chapter five it says that life on earth is a temporary test, trust, and assignment. Before I had always said "This is a test." but, it never really occurred to me that life in itself is a test. The biggest and littlest of things. Life is one giant test, everything that you experience in a days time is a test from God. It could be the way you treat a waitress or if you say hello to a stranger on the street. It has really made me examine all of my past actions and now I know that I am definitely going to be more cautious with the way that I carry myself. Saying that life is a trust has really made me realize that I need to use all of the talents that I think God has given me to their full extent. I feel that God has given me understanding, but too many times have I sat there and held my tongue for fear of being uncomfortable, or going against the grain (you know when others are talking/doing and you know in your heart you are either offended or know it is against what you beleive, yeah maybe you don't join in, but you just sit there). But, when I feel I have something to say, I should because it might really help something/someone. We need to take advantage of what God has given us but not take it for granted. God sent Chapter Six "Life is a Temporary Assignment" to me just in time. EVERYTHING in life is temporary, everything but our faith. At times I can be so caught up with petty problems, and even worse, materialistic. I worry too much about things that seem so huge to me. My future totally rests in God's hands, so what's the freaking deal? I just sit and dwell on what I did wrong and what I can do, but what I too often forget is that nothing in this life is temporary and it won't matter when I die. These problems are just sent to hinder me and challenge my faith. And I have let them a couple times, that's what I get for not putting all my trust in Him. I need to forget about all these earthly matters that take up a lot of my time and get God more in my focus. I wonder why I have to go through certain things, but I'm beginning to see it all more clearly now. He's only testing and preparing us. "God keeps his promise, and he will not allow you to be tested beyond your power to remain firm; at the time you are put to the test, he will give you the strength to endure it, and so provide you a way out." (1 Corinthians 10:13)

James 1:3 "for when your faith is tested, your endurance has a chance to grow."

matthew 5:11-12 "count yourselves blessed every time people put you down or throw you out or speak lies about you to discredit me. what it means is that the truth is too close for comfort and they are uncomfortable. you can be glad when that happens - give a cheer, even! - for though they don't like it, I do! and all heaven applauds."

Matthew 7:13-14 "For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow is the road that leads to life, and only a few find it."

Hebrews 12:1 "Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a huge crowd of witnesses to the life of faith, let us strip off every weight that slows us down, especially the sin that so easily hinders our progress."

living as children of light:

"so i tell you this, and insist on it in the Lord, that you must no longer live as the Gentiles do, in the futility of their thinking. they are darkend in their understanding and separated from the life of God because of the ignorance that is in them due to the hardening of their hearts. having lost all sensitivity, they have given themselves over to sensuality so as to induldge in every kind of impurity, with continual lust for more.

you, however, did not come to know Christ that way. surely you heard of him and were taught in him in accordance with the truth that is in Jesus. you were taught, with regard to your former way of life, to put of your old self, which is being corrupted by its deceitful desires; to be made new in the attitude of your minds; and to put on the new self, created to be like God in true righteousness and holiness.

therefore each of you must put off falsehood and speak truthfully to his neighbor, for we are all members of one body. in your anger do not sin. do not let the sun go down while you are still angry, and do not give the devil a foothold. he who has been stealing must steal no longer, but must work, doing something useful with his own hands, that he may have something to share with those in need.

do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen. and do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, with whom you were sealed for the day of redemption. get rid of all betterness, rage and anger, brawling and slander, along with every form of malice. be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you.

be imitators of God, therefore, as dearly loved children and live a life of love, just as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us as a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God.

but among you there must not be even a hint of sexual immorality, or of any kind of impurity, or of greed, because these are improper for God's holy people. nor should there be obscenity, foolish talk or coarse joking, which are out of place, but rather thanksgiving. for of this you can be sure: no immoral, impure or greedy person - such a man is an idolater - has any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and of God. let no one deceive you with empty words, for because of such things God's wrath comes on those who are disobedient. therefore do not be partners with them.

for you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. live as children of light (for the fruit of the light consists in all goodness, righteousness and truth) and find out what pleases the Lord. have nothing to do with the fruitless deeds of darkness, but rather expose them. for it is shameful even to mention what the disobedient do in secret. but everything exposed by the light becomes visible, for it is light that makes everything visible. this is why it is said:

'wake up, o sleeper, rise from the dead, and Christ will shine on you.'

be very careful, then, how you live - not as unwise but as wise, making the most of every opportunity, because the days are evil. therefore do not be foolish, but understand what the Lord's will is. do not get drunk on wine, which leads to debauchery. instead, be filled with the Spirit. speak to one another with psalms, hymns and spiritual songs. sing and make music in your heart to the Lord, always giving thanks to God the Father for everything, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ."

Ephesians 4:17-32, 5:1-21

in summary, then, all of you should be like-minded, sympathetic, loving toward one another, kindly disposed, and humble. do not return evil for evil or insult for insult. return a blessing instead. this you have been called to do, that you may recieve a blessing as your inheritance. 1 peter 3:8-9

Ephesians 4

20 You, however, did not come to know Christ that way. 21 Surely you heard of him and were taught in him in accordance with the truth that is in Jesus. 22 You were taught, with regard to your former way of life, to put off your old self, which is being corrupted by its deceitful desires; 23 to be made new in the attitude of your minds; 24 and to put on the new self, created to be like God in true righteousness and holiness.
25 Therefore each of you must put off falsehood and speak truthfully to his neighbor, for we are all members of one body. 26 "In your anger do not sin"[4] : Do not let the sun go down while you are still angry, 27 and do not give the devil a foothold. 28 He who has been stealing must steal no longer, but must work, doing something useful with his own hands, that he may have something to share with those in need.
29 Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen. 30 And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, with whom you were sealed for the day of redemption. 31 Get rid of all bitterness, rage and anger, brawling and slander, along with every form of malice. 32 Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you.
