Controversial Nigerian commentator, Reno Omokri is in thev news again as he is of the opinion that drinking alcohol is not a sin.Taking to his Twitter page, he advised people against falling for pastors who claim this is saying;
‘Jesus drank wine, there is nothing like non-alcoholic wine. If it does not have alcohol, it is not wine. It is grape juice.’
Not stopping there, Reno said;
‘I am a follower of Christ and I don’t drink. It is a personal decision. However, drinking alcohol is NOT a sin, nor is it unGodly’.
Not only did Jesus drink wine, but He also turned water to wine, ALCOHOLIC WINE, and in Matthew 26:29, He told us we would drink wine in God’s Kingdom, also known as HEAVEN.
Furthermore, the ceremonial consumption of wine is part of Jewish religious rites. So don’t let any Pentecostal or evangelical church or pastor put a burden on you that God has not put. DRINK, but don’t get DRUNK
