Are you a drunkard? I wouldn’t be quick to say no. In fact, I hope one day I will earn the title of drunkard. The Son of Man has come eating and drinking, and you say, ‘Look at him! A glutton and a drunkard, a friend of tax collectors and sinners!’ (Luke 7:34 ESV) Everywhere you look in the book [...]
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 [...]
So how do start a blog up again? What should your first “real” post be about? I started theBeerean.com on April 20th, 2008 with one simple thought in mind. There needs to be a blog for Christians who like beer. My ultimate hope with the blog would be that:
It has been almost a year-and-a-half since my last post on theBeerean.com. Jesus has been good to me in this time though. I’ve done a lot and grown a lot as a Christian, husband, father, and friend. But in all that time, don’t think that I ever forgot about theBeerean.com.
I’ve kept the site up and watched to see what w
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 [...]
Here is an interesting thought. The fact that we actually have the physical capacity to enjoy the food we eat and the beer we drink is a sign that God wants us to enjoy them. Watch the video for more thoughts on this.
I end each Beer Tip of the Week with the verse, “whether you eat or drink, do it all to the glory of God.” But what does that mean…how do we drink to the glory of God? How can someone be a God glorifying beer drinker. I hope that I have given you some insight into this arena here already, [...]
If you aren’t subscribed to Stuff Christians Like, you need to be. Jon’s satirical view on the Christian subculture is amazing. With pin point accuracy, he deconstructs the stupid trends in the Christian Ghetto. Today he decided to tackle the subject of finding out if a friend drinks beer too. With the majority of Christian’s in America being against drinking [...]
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 [...]
