I sat down the other day with Aaron Burnett to talk about his past addictions, first beers, how he stopped, 12 step-programs and the sort. Aaron is one of the on-air personalities of the “World Famous Buck and Dex Show” here in Albuquerque. He got saved last year and has been sharing his new faith in Jesus ever since. It’s [...]
by Jacob Cates I love my wife. I do! She’s fiercely loyal, stubborn in all the good ways, has a deep, abiding love for the Lord, can attract all sorts of controversy with an innocuous Facebook post. I’m not kidding. We had a date night, as all you men should have with your wives, and she said on her Facebook [...]
Last week I wrote about saying the phrase, “I need a beer.” Then a few days ago, I came across this passage in my morning reading. Who has woe? Who has sorrow? Who has strife? Who has complaining? Who has wounds without cause? Who has redness of eyes? Those who tarry long over wine; those who go to [...]
Sometimes it’s the smallest phrases that can show some of our deepest sins. I think this is the case with the phrase, “I need a beer.” We’ve all experienced one of those days where everything seems to go wrong. You wake up late (or too early), there’s no hot water in the shower, there’s no milk for cereal (worst, it’s sour), you’re [...]
With Christmas and New Years approaching fast, I thought I should give everyone a simple reminder. There are going to be a lot of opportunities to enjoy some good spirits with friends and family.
I love having a nice beer while hanging out with family waiting for the bird to cook. A glass of wine goes so well with dinner when it’s ready too. You also can’t forget about toasting in the New Year. Alcohol and this time of the year just seem to go together. Everyone seems to be offering you another beer or glass of wine or egg nog or peppermint schnops or Irish coffee or glass of scotch (I’m getting thirsty).
Honestly, there is this weird tension in me right now. I’m sad that I’m saying goodbye to being the main contributor on this blog, but I feel a since of relief. As you can probably tell, I haven’t had the time to devote to this blog as I did when I first started it several months ago. Because of that, I’ve become overly guilty and stressed. I love beer, and I love the friends that I’ve made through this blog.
I’m sitting at the MVD waiting for my number to be called bored out of my mind. So I thought I would pose the question that has been rattling in my mind the past few days. Did Jesus ever get a buzz? I think we would all agree that Jesus drank. It’s hard to be accused as a drunkered if [...]
As for the rich in this present age, charge them not to be haughty, nor to set their hopes on the uncertainty of riches, but on God, who richly provides us with everything to enjoy. – 1 Timothy 6:17 Paul drops this simple phrase at the end of this verse like a bomb on my feeble mind. Everything that God [...]
We all know the story. Jesus is a huge wedding party. People are eating and drinking and having a great time. But all the sudden the booze start running low. Jesus’ mom pleads with him to help out. Jesus being the man that he is takes over 100 gallons of water and turns it into the best wine these people [...]
Our good friend Clayton Bell posted today asking for more content on the net that is produced for Christians. He used theBeerean.com as an example of just this. But he ended his post with the question: Am I asking for the type of content that will continue to entrench Christians in our own little ghetto? I would have to say [...]
Thanks to Fr. Daniel.Â I came across this hilariously sad story about a christian couple who took over the management of a pub in London.Â The couple, “banned gambling on horse racing, took down the dart board and put up a sign outside the tavern reading “No Swearing.””Â First, it’s not a sin to be a manager or owner of [...]
A few weeks ago, I wrote about how I could care less what a legalist thinks about my drinking habit. In fact I would go to the point of taking a shot in front of one. But I think there are definitely situations where we need to abstain from alcohol. Drink for any amount of time (shot you don’t even [...]
As I’ve stated on this blog before, it isn’t a sin for a person to drink beer. But it doesn’t take very much time in the bible to figure out that getting intoxicated is a sin. The abuse and overuse of alcohol does constitute as a disconnection between us and Jesus. So this poses the question, “How many beers can [...]
Just read the following article that I got from this web site. MINOT, N.D. â€” Jack Crocker, a beer-loving machinist and “part-time Christian,” finally agreed to read Proverbs with wife Reanna. He’s glad he did. “I’m a Proverbs 31 husband all right,” says Jack, then quotes Proverbs 31:6-7: “Give beer to those who are perishing, wine to those who are [...]
