I must admit I have trouble with Christians who profit from something as harmful as alcohol. I know Jesus turned water into wine, which by the feed back the miracle received, would have no doubt been intoxicating had someone drank enough.

But given the amount of suffering alcohol abuse has caused, I wonder if I could with a clear conscience manufacture it, knowing that for the most part, it would wreck peoples lives.

I enjoy a beer or glass of wine under the constraints of Scripture, but realize that for most, it goes beyond the health benefits afforded by moderation.

dave,

I understand the point you're making, but are you willing to hold every industry to that standard? In the US, more people are struggling with obesity (& the subsequent effects: diabetes, heart disease, etc.) than alcoholism. Should churches reconsider bake sales? Maybe hosting a wine tasting is actually a better alternative. Just some food for thought (hehe, pun intended).

I'm also not convinced that "most" people abuse alcohol.
