I've had some thoughts "fermenting" in my brain for a while and wanted to see if there was any additional thoughts or wisdom to be gleaned from the community and it has to do with those in Scripture who abstained from wine and how they may have dealt with the Lord's Supper, even though Scripture doesn't say much on the point. Note that this discussion is related to the debate regarding whether wine only is to be allowed in the Lord's Supper. In Romans 14:21 it says regarding the weaker brother "It is good neither to eat flesh, nor to drink wine, nor any thing whereby thy brother stumbleth, or is offended, or is made weak." Now, laying aside the issue that wine is certainly lawful, I have to wonder about the brother who abstained from wine. Was it all wine except that used in the Lord's Supper? How practically would this have worked out with respect to the Supper? Somewhat related is the Nazarite vow, which some likely would still have taken during the apostolic period (Acts 21:22--24) and perhaps Paul himself took (Acts 18:18). Given that one of the principles was to abstain from wine (Numbers 6:3), how would Christians taking this vow have dealt with the supper? I realize any discussion on this might be complete speculation but would be interested to know if there are any insightful thoughts on it or discussions in the early church fathers.
