Puritan Board Freshman
As summertime approaches and I dust off the old smoker in preperation for a nice brisket and a few beers with my neighbors (most of whom are not Christians) I have a few questions. Before I became a Christian I drank to excess with some of these people. Knowing drunkeness to be a sin I now drink my beer in moderation. My uncle who is an evangelical and only drinks privately believes it my cross to bear to suspend my christian freedom and abstain to set an example. Do I hold my non-christian friends to the same standard? Do you think drinking beer in moderation without drunkeness in front of children is setting a poor example? Do I have a responsibility to not drink in front of people that occasionally over consume? I know this topic is overdone so please forgive me. I respect all the knowledge on this board and wanted some personalized opinions. Thank You.
