    Rewind: Can a Christian Drink Alcohol?

    Rewind: Can a Christian Drink Alcohol?

    Rapp Report Daily episode 44



    Can a Christian drink alcohol?  There is no sin in drinking alcohol in and of itself.  The Scripture has always been clear that drunkenness is a center.  One must ask, however, why do they want to drink alcohol with so many options available.  The motivation behind the drinking of alcohol can be the determiner between sin and not sin. Drunkness is always a sin in Scripture.

    Rewind: Did Jesus Drink Alcohol?

    Rapp Report Daily episode 43



    Did Jesus drink alcohol?  There are some who would like to believe that Jesus Christ never drank alcohol because they believe that all alcohol drinking is a sin.  However, we see in Scripture that Jesus did, in fact, drink alcohol.  Jesus being God cannot sin.  Therefore if Jesus Christ drank alcohol than drinking alcohol cannot be a sin.  However, Scripture has always made it clear that drunkenness is always a sin.

    Rewind: Is Drinking Alcohol a Sin?

    Rapp Report Daily episode 42



    Is drinking alcohol a sin?  The drinking of alcohol in and of itself is not a sin.  The Scripture is clear that drunkenness is always the same.  Some try to excuse drinking in the first century as if there was no alcohol content.  This is untrue.

    Rewind: Did People Drink Alcohol in the First Century?

    Rewind: Did People Drink Alcohol in the First Century?

    Rapp Report Daily episode 41



    Did people drink alcohol in the first century?  The answer is yes they did.  Alcohol served a purpose in killing dysentery in water.  In fact, people would have had to drink some level of alcohol to avoid being sick from the water.  In the first century, they did not have water filtration as we do today.  In many places around the world, people have to be careful with the water they drink.  The first century was no different.  However, there is a difference between the alcohol that they would have had for their water and what the Bible calls a strong drink.

    Rewind: Does Divorce Disqualify One for Leadership?

    Rewind: Does Divorce Disqualify One for Leadership?

    Rapp Report Daily episode 40



    Can someone who is has been divorced be qualified as a pastor or deacon?  Many people look to 1 Timothy and believe that when it says that a pastor or deacon is a husband of one wife that it means one wife for life.  They would argue that this disqualifies a divorced person.  However, it would disqualify a widower but not a divorced person that never remarries.

    Rewind: The Bible’s Authority is a Circular Argument

    Rewind: The Bible’s Authority is a Circular Argument

    Rapp Report Daily episode 39



    Many atheists try to make the claim that the Bible's authority is a circular argument. They believe that Christians make the argument that the Bible is an authority because the Bible says it is an authority.  However, that is not the argument we make.  The reason the Bible is an authority is that Its Author cannot lie, making a truthful and trustworthy.
