A Thought on Strong Drink And
What It Does To Man
By W. P. Faison
Wine is a mocker, strong drink is raging. And whosoever is
deceived thereby, is not wise. Proverbs 20: 1 .
. -The Drunkards Twenty Third Psalm: v
King Alcohol is my she pherd, I shall always want. He
maketh me to lie down in gutters. He leadeth me beside the
troubled waters. He destroyeth my soul. He leadeth me into the
paths of wickedness for, the effects sake. "'.Yea, though I walk
through the valley bf.pOYerty and have a wondering mind. I
will cling to drink. For it is with me. They bite and sting. They
torment me. Thou preparest. an empty table before me in .the
presence of my family. 'Thou anoint est my head with hellish
ness. My cup of wrath runneth over. Surely destruction and
misery shall follow me all of my life, and I shall dwell in the
house of the condemned forever; t
. No drunkard shall . inherit rthe kingdom of Heaven.
1 Cor. 6:10. But yod can change from your way of life.
Notice the Christian 23rd Psalm; From King Alcohol to
King Jesus Christ; Wants to Not Want - From gutters - to
green pastures - from Troubled Waters to Still Waters - from
destroyed soul to Restored soul; from a wicked path - to for
the path of the rigfiteousness;' a valley of poverty - for a valley
" of 'plenty? a wondering mind to for the peace of the Almighty ,
God;' Bite and sting of torment - For; comfort and peace an
, empty table - for a prepared tables - from ' destruction and
niisery tpicomfort and peace r- Destruction and misery - for
goodness and mercy a house of the damned - for the House of
the Lord.? r ' '
; Think on these things.
' -Alcohol and drugs will cause you to neglect your home,
wife and children The people of the world have become too
legalistic. They have gone beyond the teaching of the scriptures
and have gone in their own way of righteousness. When we
fail to follow the teachings of the scriptures, we fail to follow
the Lord and His commandments. What does the scriptures ,
teach about indulgence in wines and strong drinks? ' v
: Read(these scriptures. It will tell you. ; ' r
