Thy Kingdom Come!
Dear Friends, in Christ,
“Men do not differ much about what things they will call evils; they differ enormously about what evils they will call excusable.” G.K. Chesterton
I have no problem with someone having an occasional mixed drink or a glass of wine at a meal. But when it becomes a daily “need” and suddenly it becomes close to a bottle of wine, there is clearly a problem. Too many marriages (and children) have been brutally hurt because of drinking problems, and I would hope that if you have a good friend going down that path, you would not hesitate to have a heart to heart on this topic.
