Would Jesus give me SIN

Jesus gave me sin

Would Jesus give me SIN?

Good day and God bless you, recently I posted a question on YouVersion Bible Reading and it resulted in (339 Comments), I asked the question Would Jesus give us SIN? I am asking because some say drinking wine is a Sin. 

Allow me to first set a disclaimer here for you, I don’t drink any wine, and I don’t look at any other Christain any different that do drink wine, the reason why I am saying this is because a lot of people think when you are saying something and looking for answers that you are looking for a reason to clear your conscious.

Just about everyone alive has heard the story about Jesus turning water to wine at the wedding, John 2:1-11, The transformation of water into wine at the Marriage at Cana or Wedding at Cana is the first miracle attributed to Jesus in the Gospel of John.

There are some very easy to see things dealing with wine being a sin.

  1. First, Jesus never sinned 2 Corinthians 5:2
  2. Second, do you think it would be classified as a miracle if he gave them SIN?

Below are some of the people’s comments, read them, and share your thoughts, please.

Elizabeth Cuyler

Paul says in one of the Timothy books to take a little wine for your stomach’s sake. The key is moderation because he says “little”

Nick Willis

No, it’s not, this isn’t what is written. He said for your stomach, not a buzz. So moderation isn’t key, if you drink for a buzz, it’s wrong. Scripture doesn’t support that drinking a little for a buzz.

Daniel Kovalyov

Jesus can’t give us sin simply because Jesus is God and He’s holly.

Lydia Detandt Strickler

It would be better to say that drunkenness is sin and for some people using alcohol is unwise and can lead to sin if that person is prone to addictions. I am one who has to avoid it but I don’t put that requirement on others.

Nick Willis

Not just because they are or aren’t addicted, many drinks once a month to get wasted, this isn’t an addict but still in sin and not typically called a drunkard… Getting drunk in general is sin.

Kathy Gauli Markowski

Sin is a choice we make. If drinking leads to sin, we must stop.

Brooke Madsen

Jesus turned water into wine, he uses wine in his communion with the disciples. Jesus is without sin, so if he drinks it, it’s ok to drink. But the key is moderation. If we aren’t treating our bodies well with it and hurting others because of it.

Gab Var

It’s not a sin. Never in the Bible does it says it’s a sin, it says in proverbs it’s not for Kings when talking to Lemuel. But it was Jesus first miracle mentioned in the Bible

David Bradley

Be ye not drunk with wine as to excess but be filled with the Holy Spirit.

Michelle Pearl

Becoming drunk is the sin

Nick Willis

No one drinks fermented drinks for fun, it’s always for the buzz.

Nick Willis

I do I prefer the flavors and would be prefer no alcohol.

Angela Benton

Proverbs 23:17-35 just taught a class on this yesterday

Peder Olofsson

Let your life be filled with the Holy Spirit instead of getting drunk with wine- Paul’s word

Rigoberto Marichalar

Proverbs 23:31..23:29,..20:1,…23:32-33…..paul is not saying its ok to drink wine..in moderation…he was refering it to medical purposes cuz there was no clean water in those days so he would tell them to drink little wine for thy stomach sake

Dan McDougall

We are born with sin – HE takes away sin…please read the Bible carefully, brother…

Marsha Jansen

Moderation. They sang and drank wine, yes. But is a verse.. be sober.. be aware

Jo-Anne Olivier

The sin is when you get drunk and do sinful things. Drinking may lead to sin

Rigoberto Marichalar

There was no alcohol in wine in those days wine was made fermented grapes.. Jesus cannot and will not contradict the scripture cuz there many scriptures that say to not drink at all

Billi Stuart

Rigoberto Marichalar

r u ok? Wine is still made with fermented grapes. There was alcohol in wine in those days. But yes, in proverbs Soloman says not to even look at a wine when it sparkles in the glass. The new testament say to be of a sober spirit. S…

Michele Hicks

Drunkness is a sin

Kevin Moyo

Drinking wine is not a sin, drunkenness however is. also be mindful of those around you, if your brother/sister has a weakness towards alcohol, don’t partake in their presence.

 

Misty Merilien

I believe there is a difference between drinking and drunkenness. Drinking a glass of wine or a bottle of beer at dinner is not a sin. But binge drinking is. This also could be applied to food, but most people overlook gluttonous as a sin.

Nick Willis

Is there a verse that says glutinous is a sin and who would drink fermented drinks for taste and not the buzz?

Nick Willis

I will have to get back to you with a reference, but I believe purposely damaging our temple (body) would be considered a sin. I also believe everyone has their own limits as far as how much they can drink. If getting buzzed goes against yo…

Paula Cusumano DeRoo

God gave us free will to choose to sin or not.

Stephen Mascarenas

Certain drinks can be beneficial, such as wine, studies have shown that it could be good for your heart. I used to work in a hospital where doctors would give a beer to heart patients, it helped thin the blood. But it can also be an addiction! I suffer…

Brian Hank Becker

Yes there was no clean water but wine would keep so it was drinking routinely to go with food or whatever

Angela Benton

This is a topic that we will never agree on but please be careful that you do not add anything to the Bible or take anything away

Michele Dodd Goracke

Drinking wine or any other alcohol is not sinful. Drunkenness is sinful. Jesus’s first miracle was to turn water into wine, and the wine was most certainly fermented as the father of the bride comments as such.

Vanessa Oliveira

It’s only made a sin when you get drunk off of it

Greg M Fisher

In excess. To the point of being drunk .

Vanessa Oliveira

There were many feasts back in the day which includes dancing and wine it’s all about your heart and how you are doing it

Barbara Riddle

“There is a way that seems right to a man, But its end is the way of death.”

Proverbs 14:12 NKJV…

Elena Reyes Ramirez

This is God’s Word

Chris Johnsen

In excess

Vanessa Oliveira

Also if you’re drinking around somebody who is weak fro drinking that could cause them to fall it’s a sin

Jeremy Shea

That is false. Do not drink to get drunk, don’t be an alcoholic, and don’t drink around people who struggle with drinking or are offended by it.

Mimi Jam

It’s not a sin to drink alcohol, getting drunk purposefully is.

Kenneth Duncan

Drinking isn’t a sin just like eating isn’t a sin. Drunkenness is a sin just like gluttony is a sin.

Karin En Andre Schoeman

The golden rule is, that whatever you do, you should be comfortable with Jesus being right next to you. If you do something and you are ashamed of Jesus seeing it, hearing it, stop doing it

Francis Jere

Harriett Hardin Edmisten

Just about anything the Lord has provided us can become sin. It is how you use it. Are you glorifying God with how you are using it, ie alcohol, sex, money, etc?

Mandla Mn Cube

The is a difference between binge drinking and receiving a sip of wine resembling the blood of Jesus. You csn use water if yoi are allergic to alcohol

Marcus Billy Walden

Wow! NOWHERE in scripture says drinking is a sin or bad.

Sheri Bayne Reaves

The Bible only condemns drunkenness; I hardly think Jesus would turn water into wine if drinking alcohol was always sinned, even without drunkenness. The Bible also says in James 1.13-15 that God doesn’t cause or encourage anyone to sin. Jesus would be do…

Nick Willis

Would you dare believe how many people are addicted to drinking as per their own admission? 80+ million people, yet then, how many would be addicted who haven’t admitted it? MANY MORE! Point is, if these numbers friends, and yes they are staggering- we…

Richard Lee

Lots of responses saying drunkenness is a sin, not drinking. So how do you define being “drunk?”

Alex Damian Negru

www.dictionary.com/browse/drunk probably so.

Richard Lee

So realistically we could say one drink.

Hillary-Pruett Digman

Carlton Todd

Verlin John Finster

To become a drunkard is the sin. To drink to excess that damages the body is the sin.

Kala Abraham

drinking too much alcohol it’s a sin anything that you over do its sinning

Kala Abraham

Amen, sister! Excellent clarification. Doesn’t necessarily have to be the point of intoxication. Your right on!

Gary Crowley

Isn’t that under the old covenant? And Paul says not to be excessive drinkers. Doesn’t say it was a sin. He even suggested it to Timothy for stomach issues.

Gary Crowley

And James 1:13 is in line with being pleasure seekers and living in the flesh.

Donna D’Amelio

Jesus’ first miracle in the bible was turning water into wine.

Eric Russell

He gave us food, yet gluttony is a sin. Be mindful of balance in ALL aspects of this life. Be led by the Holy Spirit. Look to His word often. Blessings.

Michael Avants

Father Ripperger on YouTube has your answer. In moderation, no it’s not a sin. Maybe a venial sin depending on the circumstances. It’s a slippery slope though, so when in doubt, try quitting. Then you might find your answer.

Debra Ann Cochran

The wine that Jesus drank was from natural grapes. It was not processed with fermented grapes as it is today. The wine today goes through a process of fermentation during winemaking which turns it into an alcoholic beverage.

Debra Ann Cochran

hate to break it to you, all fermented grapes eventually make alcohol.. I’m a chemist. Ish

Debra Ann Cochran

um hey, I don’t know if you know, but wine is made with “natural grapes”. Its the natural sugars in grapes that interact with yeasts to ferment and turn it into “wine”.

Yeasts exist on plants, vegetation and some breads. …

Yaron Alain Meyer

alcohol is no sin. Just alcohol abuse

Bonnie Kinney

Alicia Hernandez

Wine was always a part of daily life in the Middle East. Even during drought, when they had to use water from the storage cisterns, 10% of wine was mixed with water to kill any bacteria. It wasn’t juice, it had to be wine.

Gab Var

Paul says in one of the Timothy books to take a little wine for your stomachs sake. Thr key is moderation, because he says “little”

Nick Willis

No it;s not, this isn’t what is written. He said for your stomach, not a buzz. So moderation isn’t key, if you drink for a buzz, it’s wrong.. Scripture doesn’t support that drinking a little for a buzz..

Nick Willis

I didn’t say for a buzz. I agree 100%

Daniel Kovalyov

Jesus can’t give us sin simply because Jesus is God and He’s holly.

Lydia Detandt Strickler

It would be better to say that drunkenness is sin and for some people using alcohol is unwise and can lead to sin if that person is prone to addictions. I am one who has to avoid it but I don’t put that requirement on others.

Nick Willis

Not just because they are or aren’t addicted, many drink once a month to get wasted, this isn’t an addict but still in sin and not typically called a drunkard… Getting drunk in general is sin.

Lydia Detandt Strickler

Jesus turned water into wine, he uses wine in his communion with the disciples. Jesus is without sin, so if he drinks it, it’s ok to drink. But the key is moderation. If we aren’t treating our bodies well with it and hurting others because of it and tr…

It’s not a sin. Never in the Bible does it says it’s a sin, it says in proverbs it’s not for Kings when talking to Lemuel. But it was Jesus first miracle mentioned in the Bible

of course. Everything in moderation.

Let your life be filled with the Holy Spirit instead of getting drunk with wine- Paul’s word

Rigoberto Marichalar

Proverbs 23:31..23:29,..20:1,…23:32-33…..paul is not saying its ok to drink wine..in moderation…he was refering it to medical purposes cuz there was no clean water in those days so he would tell them to drink little wine for thy stomach sake

Moderation. They sang and drank wine, yes. But is a verse.. be sober.. be aware

Jo-Anne Olivier

The sin is when you get drunk and do sinful things. Drinking may lead to sin

Rigoberto Marichalar

There was no alcohol in wine in those days wine was made fermented grapes.. Jesus cannot and will not contradict the scripture cuz there many scriptures that say to not drink at all

Brian Harris

Just curious, but which ones?

Rigoberto Marichalar

r u ok? Wine is still made with fermented grapes. There was alcohol in wine in those days. But yes, in proverbs soloman says not to even look at a wine when it sparkles in the glass. The new testament say to be of a sober spirit. S…

Drunkness is a sin

Billi Stuart

Drunkenness is sin.

Kevin Moyo

Drinking wine is not a sin, drunkeness however is. also be mindful of those around you, if your brother/sister has a weakness towards alcohol, dont partake in their presence.

Misty Merilien

I believe there is a difference between drinking and drunkenness. Drinking a glass of wine or a bottle of beer at dinner is not a sin. But binge drinking is. This also could be applied to food, but most people overlook gluttonous as a sin.

Nick Willis

Is there a verse that says glutinous is a sin and who would drink fermented drinks for taste and not the buzz?

Nick Willis

I will have to get back to you with a reference, but I believe purposely damaging our temple (body) would be considered a sin. I also believe everyone has their own limits as far as how much they can drink. If getting buzzed goes against yo…

Brian Hank Becker

Yes there wad no clean water but wine would keep so it was drank routinely to go with food or whatever

Angela Benton

This is a topic that we will never agree on but please be careful that you do not add anything to the Bible or take anything away

Michele Dodd Goracke

Drinking wine or any other alcohol is not sinful. Drunkenness is sinful. Jesus’s first miracle was to turn water into wine, and the wine was most certainly fermented as the father of the bride comments as such.

Vanessa Oliveira

It’s only made a sin when you get drunk off of it

Greg M Fisher

In excess. To the point of being drunk .

Vanessa Oliveira

There were many feasts back in the day which includes dancing and wine it’s all about your heart and how you are doing it

“There is a way that seems right to a man, But its end is the way of death.”

Proverbs 14:12 NKJV…

Elena Reyes Ramirez

This is God’s Word

Chris Johnsen

In excess

Vanessa Oliveira

Also if you’re drinking around somebody who is weak fro drinking that could cause them to fall it’s a sin

Jeremy Shea

That is false. Do not drink to get drunk, don’t be an alcoholic, and don’t drink around people who struggle with drinking or are offended by it.

Mimi Jam

It’s not a sin to drink alcohol, getting drunk purposefully is.

Kenneth Duncan

Drinking isn’t a sin just like eating isn’t a sin. Drunkenness is a sin just like gluttony is a sin.

Karin En Andre Schoeman

The golden rule is, that whatever you do, you should be comfortable with Jesus being right next to you. If you do something and you are ashamed of Jesus seeing it, hearing it, stop doing it

Harriett Hardin Edmisten

Just about anything the Lord has provided us can become sin. It is how you use it. Are you glorifying God with how you are using it, ie alcohol, sex, money, etc?

Mandla Mn Cube

The is a difference between binge drinking and receiving a sip of wine resembling the blood of Jesus. You csn use water if yoi are allergic to alcohol

Marcus Billy Walden

Wow! NOWHERE in scripture says drinking is a sin or bad.

Sheri Bayne Reaves

The Bible only condemns drunkenness; I hardly think Jesus would turn water into wine if drinking alcohol was always sin, even without drunkenness. The Bible also says in James 1.13-15 that God doesn’t cause or encourage anyone to sin. Jesus would be do…

drinking too much alcohol it’s a sin anything that you over do its sinning

Kala Abraham

Amen, sister! Excellent clarification. Doesn’t necessarily have to be the point of intoxication. Your right on!

Gary Crowley

Isn’t that under the old covenant? And Paul says not to be excessive drinkers. Doesn’t say it was a sin. He even suggested it to Timothy for stomach issues.

Gary Crowley

And James 1:13 is in line with being pleasure seekers and living in the flesh.

Donna D’Amelio

Jesus’ first miracle in the bible was turning water into wine.

Eric Russell

He gave us food, yet gluttony is a sin. Be mindful of balance in ALL aspects of this life. Be led by the Holy Spirit. Look to His word often. Blessings.

Michael Avants

Father Ripperger on YouTube has your answer. In moderation, no it’s not a sin. Maybe a venial sin depending on the circumstances. It’s a slippery slope though, so when in doubt, try quitting. Then you might find your answer.

Debra Ann Cochran

The wine that Jesus drank was from natural grapes. It was not processed with fermented grapes as it is today. The wine today goes through a process of fermentation during winemaking which turns it into an alcoholic beverage.

Debra Ann Cochran

hate to break it to you, all fermented grapes eventually make alcohol.. I’m a chemist. Ish

Edward Simek

Debra Ann Cochran

um hey, I don’t know if you know, but wine is made with “natural grapes”. Its the natural sugars in grapes that interact with yeasts to ferment and turn it into “wine”.

Yeasts exist on plants, vegetation and some breads. …
