Stupid Bible Stories part 17 – God likes wine


Judges 9:13 And the vine said unto them, Should I leave my wine, which cheereth God and man, and go to be promoted over the trees?

OK, I’m just going to ignore the fact that it says the vine is talking here.  I’m also going to ignore the fact that it has all sorts of plants talking in the chapter around it.  It really is so stupid that making fun of it isn’t sporting.

I’ve never really gotten the Christian hang up with alcohol.  It certainly doesn’t come from the Bible.  I mean this verse here says that God gets happy when he drinks wine.  Jesus turns the water into wine.

I do see verses that have issues with being a drunkard.  OK, that I get.  But it doesn’t even seem to have a problem when Lot gets so drunk on two consecutive days that he ends up having sex with his two daughters.

The thing that really gets me here is communion.  I don’t know where these people get off saying that alcohol is evil when one of the big things that Jesus told them they ought to do involves drinking wine.  I mean it really is the “Devil’s drink” that rather makes Jesus a little touched in the head to tell everyone to drink it.
