As Christians, is it ok to drink to the point of being drunk?

That’s a question that comes up from time to time.

The Bible appears to be quite clear, the answer is no.  Despite the fact that we may want to lower what the Bible says or try to cover it up with a misapplication of grace, the answer appears to be quite clear.

A more unclear question seems to be is alcohol in any capacity ok?  One drink?  Two?  Where’s the line?

I LOVE how Louie Giglio tackles the topic.  First, he says flat out “no” it’s not ok.  Period.  No ounce of wishy-washy to it.

But then he continues by expanding the idea.  In this life, our flame only burns for a short period of time.  Even if we live to be 100 years old, it’s a short flame, burning out.  Don’t waste your flame!  What are you spending your flame on?  Is a fragrant offering to the Lord?  Or is it waste?  Are you wasting your flame?
