We have a winner!

We have a winner in the Quote Challenge regarding the resolution on Alcohol. It was Andy Efting from Unsearchable Riches.

The fact that he even found the challenge is impressive, considering the fact that I have done nothing yet to promote this site.

The thing that I found interesting was that the National Assocation of Evangelicals, not a Fundamentalist organization by any stretch, was making and passing resolutions against Alcohol in 1967, and yet many of the "fundamentalists" that I have been interacting with lately seem to think that there is nothing wrong with alcohol.

Now, I recognize that my view on the issue is a little more restrictive than many (maybe one of these days I will give a fuller presentation of this view), and I don't fault them for that. However, even when I did hold a position that it was "allowable", I still felt that the weight of Scripture was that it was "lawful, but not expedient" and that Christians should abstain so as not to be a stumbling block, etc.

Anyway, congratulations to Andy Efting for his quick and correct response. I guess I need to make things more difficult next time. I am sure I took more time answering his puzzle than he did to answer my challenge. But, he did at least beat Greg Linscott to it!

Just my thoughts,
