by Jacob Cates I’m not a Lutheran. Not that I have anything against Lutherans, but I go to Mars Hill Church and we just aren’t Lutherans. But Martin Luther freaking rocks and we all know it. Obviously we love Jesus. TheBeerean.com cites Jesus and the rest of the Bible tirelessly because Jesus rocks harder than Luther ever could, and Luther [...]
In all honesty, I didn’t realize that this would be theBeerean’s 100th post when I sat down to write. I had planned on writing some thoughts about the drinks I shared with a lost coworker last week (maybe next week). But as I opened WordPress, I couldn’t help but see that we were setting at 99 posts. So what does [...]
“Beer is proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy.” – Benjamin Franklin (kind of) If you get around Christian beer drinkers long enough, someone is bound to bring up the epic quote from Benjamin Franklin above. So it was only a matter of time before I brought it up on theBeerean.com, and what better day than [...]
I don’t know exactly how to say this…I’m getting tired of the smug looks, the condescending tones, the holier-than-thou words, and the Bible gymnastics I get when people tell me about their convictions. This is mostly when someone tells me that they feel convicted to not drink alcohol. Let me clear the air right now…if you are convicted by the Holy Spirit [...]
I’m not a huge fan of modern country music. I grew up with my parents listening Kenny Rodgers and Dolly Parton. So the only country music I like has to be old and have enough twang that it makes you wince a little. Therefore you wouldn’t believe how happy I was to find the song below. Beer Drinking Christians was used in [...]
I had the chance the other day to sit down with Greg Mays. Greg is the author of Simple Cocktails at Home and a Christian. He is a local Albuquerque guy. We originally met through theBeerean and now we go to church together. We talk about the idea behind his book and why a Christian is writing a book about cocktails.

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 [...]
For all you social media fanatics out there, I decided to create a Facebook page for theBeerean.com. So now all the tens of Christians that read this blog have a place to be social on the interwebs. Head on over and become a fan…or like it…or whatever Facebook is calling it this week.
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 [...]
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
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 [...]
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 [...]

They live in Tallahassee, FL and are campus ministers at THE Florida State University with Every Nation Campus Ministries. I was at a bachelor party about a year [...]
