Poll: Strong drink?
Do you view the occasional glass of wine or beer the same as a night of endless cocktails and shots? Is all alcohol consumption evil and those who use it judiciously going against God in some way? Or do you think there is room in faithful membership for navigating this aspect of the Word of Wisdom? And if you think there is, does the need to hide it from other members and leaders affect your choices and perspective?
It’s been said that many of the suggestions given to members as lifestyle guidelines are for “the weakest of the saints”, suggesting that precautions are advised wholesale for those who could not otherwise tolerate the self discipline required for moderation. Do you believe this is true, or is drinking an unnecessary indulgence that potentially leads away from God? Is it as important as we make it out to be?
