Popular Nigerian author and former media aide to ex-president GEJ, Reno Omokri, has taken to social media to say that drinking is not a sin and that scripture allows you use your tithe to buy alcohol.
He wrote; “Drinking alcohol is not a sin. Drunkenness is a sin. It is unscriptural to preach against alcohol. Even in heaven they drink wine (Matthew 26:29). Paul encouraged wine drinking (1 Timothy 5:23). In fact, Psalm 104:15 says God created wine to gladden the hearts of men. Scripture allows you use your tithe to buy alcohol, including spirits (Deuteronomy 14:26). Stop allowing yourself be used for merchandise. Emancipate yourself from religious bondage. Get your doctrine from Scripture, not tradition or church regulations. The Son has set you free. Don’t allow men keep you in bondage!
“With regard to my post above, religionists are arguing that when Scripture says wine, it refers to non alcoholic wine. Scriptural wine is ALCOHOLIC (John 2:10). Deuteronomy 14:26 even refers to it as STRONG DRINK. Anything done in excess, including wine, is a sin. I urge you to stop adjusting Scripture to suit your biases and church doctrine, and instead, adjust your biases and church doctrines to suit Scripture!”
