Alcohol and Reformed Calvinists

Can anyone name a Reformed /Hyper /Extreme /Neo /Hybrid /Flounder-lovin' Calvinist who believes it's wrong to socially drink alcohol? Or to put it another way, is there a Reformed SBC Calvinist out there who agrees with 99.9% of Southern Baptist churches on the subject? If there is, please tell me.

Since Tom Ascol took up the cause to allow SBC agency heads and trustees the right to have a nip or two, the Reformed bloggers have proven Adrian Rogers correct. They truly are the "wine and cheese theologians."

Peter Lumkins weighs in on the issue and it's worth reading.

i'll go with jesus over th 99.9% of southern baptist churches, any day of the week and twice on sundays.

i hope the drinkers make it to heaven, cause everyone knows Jesus said,

jesus is my favorite theologian that drank wine.

and no, i don't drink, never have, but I don't feel more holy because of it.

Dear Bob:

I am no Hyper although I used to be.

As far as "social drinking" is concerned, I will have to register my disagreement with the 99.9% of Southern Baptists on this.

Jesus was, by definition, a "social drinker." He drank at weddings and other social events.

Now, I rarely drink, but my conscience does not bother me when I do, so long as I drink in moderation.

How anyone can read the bible on this topic and yet say social drinking in toto is condemned, is teaching a blatant falsehood and doing harm to the cause of Christ, I firmly believe.

God bless
