In Responce to the Duck Dynasty Wine Company

Here is the news that fired so many up:

Social media is blowing up about it!  Recently Willie Robertson was "uninvited" to speak for the Free Will Baptist Ministries, because of his companies decision to sell wine.  This is misleading, he was dis-invited because Free Will Baptist Ministries are a ministry that helps adolescences who are struggling with Drug & Alcohol problems.  For this reason I agree it was best to uninvite Robertson, so not to cause these brothers and sisters to stumble (Romans 14:2).

But don't be legalistic people, listen to what the word says about wine:

Psalm 104:15a: "wine to gladden the heart of man"
Ecclesiastes 10:19b: "wine gladdens life"
Judges 9:13: "But the vine said to them, ‘Shall I leave my wine that cheers God and men and go hold sway over the trees?"
John 2:1-11 Story of Jesus turning water in to wine, for a wedding!

Do not confuse me, I am by no means advocating under aged drinking or drunkenness, the Bible speaks clearly that we're to be of Sober mind:
Ephesians 5:18
Proverbs 20:1
1 Peter 5:8
1 Corinthians 6:10
Romans 14:21

So be mindful to not get drunk or cause a brother to stumble, but do not be legalistic.  Stop wasting time on petty arguments, this is what the world see's about Christians, and through us God.  God is not petty!
