Ephesians 5:15-18a Don’t Drink CLICK TITLE FOR AUDIO    

Christians are not to drink alcohol.  There’s a contrast here between being drunk with wine and being filled with the Spirit.  Tells you plainly, “Be not drunk…”  I can tell you Paul’s right.  Booze is not for Christians.  The excess is IN  the wine, not in how much you consume.
