No, I'm not drunk, just thought it might make a good looking title.
Farlas, a good argument against Anti drink on religious grounds is
"Not what goes into the mouth defiles a man; but what comes out of the mouth, this defiles a man."
Besides Jesus and all 12 were wine drinkers.
Tis always important to ID the sin/problem not the... erm... whatcha call it... the thing.
Drink being "the thing" - gluttony being the problem.
A bit like sex before marriage. This in itself isn't wrong, however the reasons for it might be.
Might steal a little from Pope Benedict.... the whole Eros and Agape area is very to the point (Great english Annatar by-the-by). Indeed this holds true for sex in marriage, a married couple who have sex as a result of lust or Eros is commiting a sin; inversely, sex outside marriage as a result of Agape or selfless love is a blessing (or at very least not a sin). leastways thats how I read it in my head.
Anywho, what I wanna know is where did all that come from??!!?
So we have a nice little spread o' ages. From the great wisdom endowed men like Man Of Westernesse and myself to.......
HEHEHE just messing!
See you all later :) Ash Nazg...
