ABOUT FOOD AND DRINK. WHAT DOES BIBLE SAY?
Often come times when people are more worried than usual about what a Christian can or can not, or should not eat/ drink. With the thought to save your time I will day briefly with the Words of Jesus:
“What goes into someone's mouth does not defile them,…But the things that come out of a person's mouth come from the heart, and these defile them.
Don't you see that whatever enters the mouth goes into the stomach and then out of the body? But the things that come out of a person's mouth come from the heart, and these defile them. For out of the heart come evil thoughts - murder, adultery, sexual immorality, theft, false testimony, slander. Matthew 15:11-19; Mark 7:15 -19.
“Everything is pure to those whose hearts are pure. But nothing is pure to those who are corrupt and unbelieving, because their minds and consciences are corrupted.” Titus 1:15.
“The tongue can bring death or life; those who love to talk will reap the consequences.” Proverbs 18:21.
David prayed to God: “Set a guard over my mouth, LORD; keep watch over the door of my lips. Psalm141:3.
If anyone considers himself religious and yet does not bridle his tongue, he deceives his heart and his religion is worthless. James 1:26.
“Go, eat your food with gladness, and drink your wine with a joyful heart, for God has already approved what you do.” Ecclesiastes 9:7. (just be careful and do not turn into drunkard). And everything you do, do all in the name of the Lord and for His glory. Ask Him what He approves and His Spirit will lead you into Truth.
“…because there is nothing better for a man under the sun than to eat and drink and be merry. For this joy will accompany him in his labor during the days of his life that God gives him under the sun.” Ecclesiastes 8:15.
In conclusion: "Do not call anything impure that God has made clean." A man is not defiled by what enters his mouth, but by what comes out of it. Acts 10:15.
God all things made very good. Genesis 1:31.
P.S. Though would like to add that excessive consumption of heavy alcohol can lead to very sad consequences, even to poverty or something even worse. God's children are allowed to sip wine, but warnings are given not to drink too much. In order not to become a drinker, thus ruining everything good.
Ecclesiastes 23:20, 23:29-35, 20:1, Ephesians 5:18; Galatians 5:19-21; 1 Corrintians 6:12.
