On a recent food page of The Star, a columnist focused on the idea of using wine as an ingredient in recipes, but that uses a deadly taste that’s habit-forming.

Common sense is taught in Proverbs, saying in chapter 20 that wine is a mocker, strong drink is a brawler, and whoever is led astray by it is not wise.

Wine is soured vinegar that dulls the senses, proven by the Anniston City Council openly saluting a crowd of diners at local bars and restaurants. The Star showed photos of customers in a display of revelry celebrating their freedom to become legally intoxicated while Jesus refused to have His thirst quenched by it at His crucifixion.

Provide your holiday meal at home, making certain that your table won’t become a snare like those serving on their pretty, festive table a setting of long-stem glasses of champagne and goblets filled with wine with its sparkling quality. Gourmet cooks now stir up scrumptious desserts in which we’re told the oven evaporates the alcohol, but that leaves a residue bound to affect lives at the results of the serpent’s bite.

Don’t you think smokers being forbidden to light up in public places might be an oxymoron?

Why do we no longer hear the voices of morality of city forefathers, who once raised the standard for sobriety in the public square?
