Alcohol: The Sting of the Sparkling Serpent

Alcohol -- The Sting of the Sparkling Serpent -- GraphicThe sermon presented by Jason Hardin in the A.M. assembly of September 27, 2009 at Laurel Canyon.

“Do not look at wine when it is red, when it sparkles in the cup and goes down smoothly.   In the end it bites like a serpent and stings like an adder” (Proverbs 23:31-32).

What does the Bible say about alcohol?   What wisdom can be gleaned from the revelation of God about intoxication in general?   Perhaps most importantly, WHY did God say what He did about the “sparkling serpent”?   This sermon encourages honest examination into a serious societal issue.
