While I do not have issues with drinking alcoholic beverages, it should not be consumed as a means of controlling our behavior. Proverbs 20:1 says: Wine is a mocker and beer a brawler; whoever is led astray by them is not wise. Anything you allow in your life to control you is bad, no matter what it is. The only thing we can ever allow in our lives to control us is the Holy Spirit, who will never lead us down the wrong path.
