God did not create humans to eat, drink and be merry

Posted: Friday, December 05, 2003

The 2003 Craft Show at Kenai Central High School was good again, and I enjoyed browsing through each booth and seeing the different talents of individuals.

But there was one booth that I walked completely by because I was offended by a saying that was posted on material and other items. The saying was "Beer is proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy." How offensive! God did not create beer. Man created beer. By man's reactions to consumption of beer, do you call that happy?

God did not create us for us to "eat, drink and be merry!" He created us "For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish but have everlasting life."

You choose beer rather than God? Beer has nothing to do with happiness, but God has everything to do with peace!
