No alcohol

ALCOHOL IS  A  VICE AND NOT A NECESSITY

Some persons rightfully maintain that prison,  job termination are still the main and best solution to this problem of alcoholics, drug abuses too .. for my being kind to the UNREPENTANT wicked, bad, no good persons is really now still a complete waste of time, energy, effort for without real negative consequences neither they or the others tempted to follow them they will not tend to readily positive change, for their own good or the good of others.
 .
(Isa 26:10 KJV)  Let favour be showed to the wicked, yet will he not learn righteousness: in the land of uprightness will he deal unjustly, and will not behold the majesty of the LORD.11 LORD, when thy hand is lifted up, they will not see: but they shall see, and be ashamed for their envy at the people; yea, the fire of thine enemies shall devour them.
 .
(Hab 2:5 KJV)  Yea also, because he transgresseth by wine, he is a proud man, neither keepeth at home, who enlargeth his desire as hell, and is as death, and cannot be satisfied, but gathereth unto him all nations, and heapeth unto him all people:

Drugs, Drinking and driving still do affect the number of road deaths, and alcohol is still a factor in at least a quarter of all fatal collisions. In 2003, more than 200 people died and 500 were seriously hurt in drunk-driving collisions in the province of Ontario’s roads alone

“Sat Oct 22, 3:46 PM ET  OTTAWA (CP) – In a corner of Senator Marjory LeBreton’s office sits an arrangement of fresh white roses, daisies and lilies from Brian and Mila Mulroney. The card is marked: “The sun will shine again.” The sun is obscured by a tragedy for LeBreton that seems to have no end. LeBreton, who worked as Mulroney’s appointments secretary, lost a daughter and grandson nearly 10 years ago to a drunk driver named Matt Brownlee. Brownlee is a nephew of Bonnie Brownlee and Bill Fox, the husband and wife team who worked as press secretaries for former prime minister Mulroney and his wife, Mila. Matt Brownlee, who served seven years for drunk driving causing the deaths of Linda LeBreton-Holmes and her 12-year-old son, Brian, in suburban Ottawa was again charged this month with drunk driving and driving without a licence. The new charges against Brownlee, 33, have not been proven in a court of law but have re-opened old emotional wounds. “I was stunned at the news,” said the Conservative senator known for fierce loyalty to Mulroney and being the former prime minister’s eyes and ears in Ottawa. “I’d tried to put it at the back of my mind because it’s been almost 10 years since my daughter and grandson were killed . . . And I am angry.” LeBreton, who serves as the national chair of Mothers Against Drunk Driving, thinks Brownlee should be declared a dangerous offender and locked up indefinitely. “My goodness, they just don’t get it,” said LeBreton. “They’re treating this as if it’s a public relations exercise and somehow or another there’s a story to be told on behalf of Matt Brownlee. “It’s never him, and it’s never them, it’s the system that let him down, and I was actually quite angry when I read that because not once in that whole article was there any remorse or any regret for what he’s done.”   LeBreton says she is frustrated by a weak justice system and has been working on a bill to lower the allowable blood alcohol level for driving to 50 milligrams of alcohol per 100 millilitres of blood from the existing 80 parts.  She says such countries as France, Germany and Australia have already moved to the lower level.”

“Ottawa — Pierre Tremblay, the former Liberal aide who later ran the corrupted taxpayer’s paid  Canadian Federal government’s sponsorship programming in Ottawa Ontario, died a tormented man said a close friend said in a television interview, Claude Lamontagne was close to Mr. Tremblay.  Mr. Tremblay testified in private about the corruption before a parliamentary committee, but died in 2004 before he could testify at the subsequent Gomery inquiry into the scandal. Mr. Tremblay was chief of staff to then-public-works-minister Alfonso Gagliano from 1997 to 1999, in the early days of the sponsorship program that also aimed at raising the federal presence in Quebec before it became abused by the Liberal party members themselves. Mr. Tremblay  was the bureaucrat in charge of the program from 1999 to 2001. Mr. Tremblay witnessed irregularities, but refused to divulge them before and next  Mr. Tremblay died from diabetes after battling alcoholism,”  Brain damaged Alcoholics running governmental programs was and is still always unacceptable, he Pierre Tremblay should have rightfully been terminated, fired, been dismissed long time ago too and with no severance pay too.”

Verbal, Physical abuse, Disrepect  of any persons, self included is immoral, unaccpetable  wrong and is in the same unacceptable categaory of Cheating, Lying, Stealing, Tax evasions.
.
These days you also so got to supervise daily even the politicians, even the civil and public servants  now as well, for it seems they will all run back quickly to their old tricks.. to their even bad habits of drunkenness, cheating, lying and stealing, and wrongfully next also they think they can get away with it. Clearly we as citizens have wrongfully elected too many thieves, liars, drunks, alcoholics into political offices… and they all now should still be fired, removed, recalled ASAP.It is also really not acceptable that  we let the people who are the real accomplices of the  abuse the taxpayers money, the existing inadequate poor supervisors in the governments, civil and public services to stay employed, and they rightfully also rather now should immediately all be fired.. in fairness now even all of them.
 .
The Public exposure and prosecutions of the guilty persons starting rightfully at the top, but goes down to the bottom as well  serves everyone’s best interest and is continually mandatory for everyone’s best and good welfare. All it takes for evil to prosper is for the good people to wrongfully do nothing about it.
  .
You know that even when any  crown corporation too now does not perform rightfully I really rightfully recommend to the Ministers, government that their budget be severely cut till the managers and the subordinates do get their whole House in order..
 .
 
I have really also learned  from personaly observing many persons the last 35 years that there tends to be no such thing as a little bit pregnant,  that to open the barn door a little bit,  left unrestrained, undisciplined, unsupervised, means  the barn door next  will eventually swing wide open.. and when any person tends to personally allow, start a little acceptable vice, abuse, eventually the other even bigger vices, abuses  do now also tend to grow, develop there as well..  and yes while some deny it they too all thus next can be easily discovered, even though the guilty persons too often  will deny this.. and this includes even now next the vices of pre-marital sex, sodomy, polygamy, alcoholism, gambling,  adultery,  drunkenness, bingeing, gluttony, gouging, self-destructive behaviors, selfishness, indifference, apathy, jealousy, anger, hate,   envy,   rudeness, irritability or grudges , lust, cussing, cheating , addiction, shoplifting, stealing, tax evasions and even the others abusive behaviors of bullying, racism, disrimination, pride, lying.  Many people lie to others and falsey deny they have a personal problem. You see one of the major problem about lying is one next tends to believe in one’s own lie as being the truth when they   still are not the truth, and one does do becomes personally partially often next even insane for lying.  …  And most people still do even lie every 3 to 5 minutes they undeniably say? But some person lie a lot more than others, a lot more.. even to themselves , others and to the courts especially. it is not just all the men now that are supposedly the bad guys. in reality men and women are still equal sinners according to God still too and both lie, sin. One of the major problem about lying is one next tends to believe in one’s own lie as being the truth when they still are not… Most of the liars  still are wrongfully not willing to take any personal responsibility, accountability for their own faults, their own shortcomings now next  too and project wrongfully their faults, problems even on the others

.

The real, root problem often is not the alcohol, or the drugs themslves, alone but rather one honestly dealing with themselves and their own real shortcomings  still too.The basic secret of all successful substance abuse termination programs are accepting personal repsonsibility, personal ccountability,  the individual first personally has to admit he or a she  has done wrong, also admits he or she now does needs help,  admit that they is willing to take the help.. all three aspects are required still too. An appropriate real self examination on their own part is always needed firstly here  for it is also their  own real bad personal acts,  and related guilt that next contributes, contributed to his or  her own poor self image, fears, additional  problems..  especially more when things did not go the way he or she had planned beforehand . 
 .
Did you also know that even professionals, teetotalers can develop an “alcoholic behavior temperament”, as evidenced by the Taylor Johnson temperament analysis test too, to that of a person who has a poor self image, and  who is a cheat, liar, manipulator, con artist. Many  persons lile this too have personally next had refused to go to any  counseling and why they would rather often rather to go to any other persons  and there wrongfully talk  about the other issues and not themselves. Now still  what about the people who often do cheat, lie and steal now, even any the lawyers, professionals, politicians especially who do note whetehr they admit it to youot not, they doalso become more depressed than the average person now as well as a result of their own absues. They too personaly do reap what they themselves have sowed ehh?  It is in fact very likely the cause they also do  tend to next have the same behavior temperament  as an alcoholic, a substance abuser   in reality.

Furthermore “Depression more common among substance abusers: report   Thu, 09 Dec 2004 10:49:04 EST  OTTAWA – Heavy drinkers or drug users are much more likely than teetotalers to become depressed, just as people with the mental illness more often develop addictions, a Statistics Canada study suggests.  The report, released Thursday, indicates that adult Canadians who rely on illicit drugs are more than six times as likely to suffer through a major depressive episode than those who never touch them.   More than a quarter – 26 per cent – of Canadians who seemed dependent on drugs in 2002 struggled with depression, compared to only four per cent of abstainers, the Alcohol and Illicit Drug Dependence report suggests.  About one in six heavy drinkers – those who had five or more drinks on a single occasion at least once a month during a year – had a depressive episode, compared to one in 20 among non-drinkers.   Tjepkema said the report confirms the results of earlier studies that suggest a link between substance abuse and mental illness and lends weight to them because it relies on a much larger sample of the population.  Written by CBC News Online staff”

“Top U.S. drug-addiction research warns against decriminalizing marijuana  Dec. 7, 2004    Provided by: Canadian Press   Studies show wider availability of a drug coupled with a relaxed attitude towards it help predict the level of use and addiction, said Dr. Nora Volkow. (CP handout) VANCOUVER (CP) – A top American clinical researcher in the field of drug addiction warned Tuesday that decriminalizing marijuana could lead to increased abuse of the drug.  Studies show wider availability of a drug coupled with a relaxed attitude towards it help predict the level of use and addiction, said Dr. Nora Volkow, director of the National Institute on Drug Abuse. Volkow said surveys indicate that if a drug is considered safe and benign, its use spirals. Drug addiction rates can range from 20 to 30 per cent of users.   “The notion of legalizing and making drugs accessible, what it will do is ultimately increase the number of people that get exposed to the drug,” Volkow said in an interview.  “Some of those people will become addicted that may have not become addicted had it not been so easily accessible.”  The best examples, she said, are alcohol and tobacco, both widely available and relatively acceptable socially and with the most widespread addiction rates.  The federal Liberal government is mulling the decriminalization of possession of small amounts of pot. The Canadian proposal is drawing frowns within the U.S. government – notably drug-policy czar John Walters – accompanied by warnings about implications at the border.  Volkow, here to speak to people working in the drug-addiction field, said many scientists used to believe marijuana was not addictive.  But she said the pot consumed by the Baby Boom generation had much less of the active ingredient THC – which interacts with receptor proteins in the brain that translate pleasure responses – than the types now available.  “It is this chemical that can lead to the addiction,” she said. “When people were taking marijuana in the past, they were consuming a very weak drug.  “The experiences that people may have had – that are now in their 40s and 50s – who say ‘I never became addicted to that drug,’ that does not necessarily pertain to the type of compound we’re seeing today.”  Research since then has also revealed a lot more about the effects of marijuana on those brain receptors and how they help regulate things such as memory and learning, she said.  Volkow was appointed in 2003 to head the institute, an arm of the U.S. National Institutes of Health.   With a budget of more than $900 million US, it is the world’s largest supporter of clinical research on addiction and funds about 85 per cent of studies worldwide.  A research psychiatrist, Volkow, 48, has published more than 200 papers and specializes in the study of brain imaging to investigate what role dopamine, the brain chemical that triggers sensations of pleasure and motivation, plays in addiction.  Volkow’s skepticism about marijuana is based partly on her experience.  She made her reputation in the 1980s with a ground-breaking study that discovered regular cocaine use caused tiny strokes. Coke was the drug of choice in the go-go ’80s, popularly thought to be safe for recreational use.  “I had serious trouble getting that study published,” she said. “Nobody wanted to believe it.”  The organization Volkow now heads even rejected her grant application. It took the cocaine deaths of two prominent sports stars to alert people that maybe cocaine wasn’t so safe, she said.  Those kinds of causal links don’t yet exist with pot, she said. But some studies have tied its use to a rise in psychotic episodes and schizophrenia.  The institute is funding research to look at the effects of marijuana in the developing brain.  Volkow told the meeting research indicates adolescent brains are at higher risk of drug addiction because areas of the frontal cortex that affect reasoning and judgment, as well as a deeper region that involves pleasure responses, are not yet fully developed.  Environment also plays a role, she said, because studies show a connection between stress levels and addiction. Poverty itself is not the cause, said Volkow, but the stress of dealing with poverty is.  Despite her concerns about decriminalization, Volkow said drug addiction has to be treated as a disease, not a moral weakness to be stigmatized.  “It doesn’t help anyone and it certainly doesn’t help the addicted person,” she said. 
 .
With a lot of criminal activity linked to drug addiction, Volkow said the institute favours treatment intervention in prisons.  A Delaware study found a sharp drop in drug use and arrests among people who went through the correctional system’s program and received followup care.  Such programs could be pivotal because in the United States, only about 15 per cent of addicts get any kind of treatment, she said. “  But the devil and his spin doctors  will try to deny all od  these truth stoo..
 .
(Gen 3:4 KJV)  And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die: 5   For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.6 And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat.
 .
but next they too were still even faced with the reality… (Gen 3:7 KJV)  And the eyes of them both were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together, and made themselves aprons.8   And they heard the voice of the LORD God walking in the garden in the cool of the day: and Adam and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the LORD God amongst the trees of the garden. 9 And the LORD God called unto Adam, and said unto him, Where art thou?10   And he said, I heard thy voice in the garden, and I was afraid, because I was naked; and I hid myself.
 .
Do face it the person who takes bad drugs, alcohol does take it willingly and he or she should also suffer real negative consequences for his poor personal choice here on earth still too, especially when his or her choice harms anyone else.

 No man should adduce in favour of drinking wine unless he can prove that the wine Jesus made in the” water-pots” of Cana was just like the wine which he proposes to drink. There are ample Greek literary texts which negate the narrow definition of oinos as denoting only fermented wine as it did not have the taste or the intoxicating effect of ordinary wine, God did not make fermented juice.. New wine would be grape juice (or a grapeade) mode from grape syrup while old wine would be 2 to 3 years old Suffice it to say, the “better” wine of course does not in any way imply or demand a more alcoholic, or even an alcoholic, wine at all, there is not the slightest evidence that the word so used would have conveyed any idea but that of the pure juice of the grape,

 

John the Baptist did not drink wine or any other form of alcohol because Scripture prophesied that he wouldn’t (Luke 1:15). Most people don’t know where to draw the line between temperance and excess. Such people better abstain totally until they know they can “be temperate in all things.”

 

John 210 And saith unto him, Every man at the beginning doth set forth good wine; and when men have well drunk, then that which is worse: but thou hast kept the good wine until now.

 

And the word used twice  for “good” wine is a Greek word which refers to something or someone morally excellent or intrinsically good, rather It was Christ who in the Old Testament gave the warning to Israel, that “Wine is a mocker,” so why would he make fermented grape juice? by creating alcoholic wine, Jesus would have been promoting drunkenness, which the Bible clearly identifies as sinful.

 

Next you will say Jesus would have also distributed Playboy magazines.

 

If Jesus made fermented wine, then the fact that the guests had become”well drunk” would have meant that Jesus endorsed excessive drinking. Therefore,either Jesus endorsed excessive drinking of alcohol or the wine was unfermented grape juice! Obviously, then, the wine that Jesus made was unfermented grape juice.

 

Too many have assumed that the Hebrew and Greek words translated as “wine” must have the same meaning that themodern usage meaning of the English word “wine” does. In the English language, the word “wine” originally was used to denote the juice of grapes, whether in a fermented or unfermented state. Long ago, of course, that word has taken on the usage meaning of only grape juice in its fermented state. That’s why today we distinguish the two drinks by using the terms “wine” and “grape juice.”

 

Exodus 12:15 and 13:7 forbid the very presenceof “leaven” anywhere in the homes during Passover. The New Testament–in Matthew 16:12 and I Corinthians 5:7-8–provide the explanation by declaring that leaven is a symbol of evil. Leaven is a yeast, so the leavening process is parallel to the process of fermentation. In the light of these facts,plus Jesus’ statement in the disputed passages that the “fruit of the vine”represented His own saving blood, we must surely conclude that the communion cup did, and should always, contain unfermented (ie., uncorrupted) grape juice. The following Old Testament texts show God’s disapproval of wine, as “yayin:” Genesis 9:21; 19:32; Leviticus10:9-11; Deuteronomy 32:33; Psalm 60:3; Proverbs 4:17; 20:1; 23:20, 29-35;31:4-5; Isaiah 5:11-12; 28:7; Ezekiel 44:21; and Hosea 7:5. Proverbs 23:31-35–Again, the very nature of fermented wine is categorically condemned as a “serpent” and an “adder” that bites and stings.

 

The Bible condemns the use itself of all alcoholic beverages and highly recommends unfermented grape juice!  The only exception to this consistent rule in Scripture is Proverbs 31: 6-7, which commands that alcoholic beverages be given to those who are dying or cowards.

 

The assumption made by proponents of the moderate use of alcoholic beverages that the ancient peoples did not know how to preserve the juice of the grape in an unfermented state, and that therefore, virtually every instance of wine mentioned in the Bible must be to fermented wine.This assumption is totally false as the ancient historical records are abundantly clear that there were several major methods of preserving grape juice in its natural, unfermented state.

 

Scriptures clearly teach that the very nature of alcoholic beverages is that which brings spiritual apostasy and otherwise affects the mind (and body too) of whomever drinks it. In other words, it is not excessive drinking only that the Bible condemns,but the beverage itself and its consumption in any amount. Since most people and Christians do not know or study the Bible today they are easily deceived.

 

As it is abundantly clear that the Bible condemns the use of alcohol in any amounts, Persons that are simply rationalizing what they want to do regardless of the facts or the consequences to their spiritual, or physical, natures are led to do so by the demons.
