More than ever does a Christian drink alcohol rather than turn to the Lord to help him in his time of need. Used properly, there are scientific applications for alcohol and drugs. This does not negate God’s opinion regarding the matter, and it can be found in the Bible.
Using the Principle of first mention, Dr. Blue shows how man always connects drinking to immorality (Gen 19:30). Things have now changed today. Drinking can always be connected with immorality, immodesty and incest. Almost every call into police stations regarding domestic disputes surround the consumption of alcohol. There is no place in the Christian life for these sins to prosper.
In every mention of drinking in the Bible ends in a curse: Noah, Lot, etc. The fact that God curses those who are involved in drinking alcohol.
Why does a Christian drink alcohol? Many Christians are either ignorant of this, trying to overcome or are directly defiant of God’s Word. Dr. Blue believes that God’s Word can help immensely.
God very specifically addresses His expectation of the Christian in Leviticus 10:9. This verse of Scripture makes it very clear what His opinion is regarding any Christian drinking alcohol, in any form. Dr. Blue uses it and many other instances from the Bible to address this subject.
The world is full of people who drink all of the time. But, should a Christian Drink Alcohol? This AUDIO SERMON will help you to answer that question for yourself.
Pastor Ken Blue was born in Boswell, Ark. In 1955 he accepted Christ as his Savior. He and his wife Joyce were married in 1955. They have 5 children. He graduated from Midwestern Baptist Bible College in 1969 and started the Open Door Baptist Church in Lynnwood, Wa. where he pastored for 39 years. Because of health issues (ALS) he was forced to resign as pastor. It is his desire to continue to be used of God to help pastors and believers through this ministry.

Brother Cole and Pastor Blue. I was in law enforcement for 33 years and held every rank from patrolman to deputy chief. I saw the destruction caused by alcohol, first hand. Everything described in Pastor Blue’s sermon is absolutely true. Not only did alcohol adversely affect the lives of the public we dealt with, but often times police officers turned to alcohol consumption as well. Oh the lives (and careers) I have seen destroyed by its use. This sermon needs to be preach from every pulpit across America!
