John MacArthur recently wrote on the question of alcohol consumption, which you all can read here. Frankly, given his exegetical abilities and his dedication to the teaching of Scripture, this was profoundly disappointing. As it happened, a month or so ago, I read the manuscript of Joel McDurmon’s latest book, What Would Jesus Drink?, in order to blurb it (which I happily did). And now this self-same Joel has answered John MacArthur’s post here.
But as you follow such exchanges, remember that more things than alcohol can go to your head. Don’t run to your keyboards to type heatedly. Open your Bibles, like you would pour a good pint, and take it slow.
