I am in constant awe at Christians who have arrived spiritually to the point where they can read other people's hearts and know whether or not they are saved based on a twisted version of a few words

If you take a bowl out of the cabinet and it is dirty, can you use it for ice cream. Why yes you can! However if your standard is cleanliness, it doesn't matter that you can use it, you will not use i

I need clarification. The title suggests that you drink wine on a regular basis. So please clarify. Are you a drinker of wine on a regular basis? Or are you an occasional drinker of wine? Or are you a former drinker of wine (meaning that you no longer drink wine)?

As evidenced by many examples throughout the Bible, God does indeed use those who have sinned for His purposes.  That doesn't mean it's ok to sin, to continue to sin and usually for those unrepentant sinners, God uses them in such a way to help someone else, not them.

I have had wine, now this is your chance to attack me. Or you can say that God could never use me, for doing this. I am out of popcorn. But I have told you the truth. :)

It's not about whether God can use you are not because God can use anyone. It's about how does it effect your testimony and how is your conscience before God?

The drinker's conscience before God doesn't really mean much.  He is going to do what seems right in his eyes.  If is seems right to him, his conscience is not condemning him.

The problem is, man's heart is deceitful and desperately wicked.

Eve saw the forbidden fruit, that it was good to the eyes.
The drinker sees the alcohol, that it is good to the eyes.

The drinker's conscience before God doesn't really mean much. 

Romans 14:20- For meat destroy not the work of God. All things indeed are pure; but it is evil for that man who eateth with offence.

 

Of course, if you believe Paul was only giving his opinion...

So many like to take Romans 14 out of context and use it to justify their drinking of alcohol. 

But in light of the fact that alcohol has the ability to cause one to forget the law; pervert the judgment of the afflicted; cause one to lust; cause one to speak perverse things; make one a brawler, etc., it is highly doubtful that Paul was defending the drinking of alcohol in that passage.

Let's say you have invited me to your daughter Wedding, and you placed the glass of wine to celebrate this special day with you. I would drink the wine with you, dance and bring my love offering to them.

However if your standard is cleanliness, it doesn't matter that you can use it, you will not use it. God can use a dirty vessel...but he won't, not in the way that anyone with a heart for him wants to be used.

 

 

I remember when being a kid, my ice cream fell off the cone to the ground, I cried, my father said fear not, lets get you a new one. :)

     Here is my analysis and reply:

 

     #1 - Your original post is pompous and arrogant.

 

     #2 - We don't drink nor do we dance nor do we tempt others to drink or dance.

 

     #3 - Knowing that you do drink and you do dance, we would not invite you to our daughter's wedding.

 

     #4 - It would be better if you pursued personal holiness in your life rather than being so obnoxious.

5. i would not go to your daughters wedding because of you. But rejoice with them secretly.

      Now it is time for me to step out of my shell and let go... I AM STRICT KJV!... In scripture God said he would preserve his word... Well did he or didn't he?... If there is every translation under the sun, then he didn't but I KNOW HE DID!... The preserved word of God called the KJV is for the English people has been around for over 400 years and what is interesting to me, is the KJV was translated in 1611 and the Pilgrims landed on Plymouth Rock in 1620... Coincidence?... A new book the preserved KJV word of God for the New World... So take that you KJV naysayers... I have been reading, studying and digging through the KJV for over 50 years... My belief is 100% Christ and scripture says so... Glad to be here and its time to take these shackles off!   
      John 5:39 Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me.

      Praise God I found such a powerhouse of the outpouring of His Spirit and unapologetic in regards of the defense of the KJV Bible. When I became a Christian back in 1984, I was told to get & read the KJV. It's been my choice all these years.
