Is Social Drinking Okay?


“If that isn't the picture of the country today, I don't know what is. When the Bible says it's wrong to do these things, and the church will continually go on and do it! We make WHISKEY DRINKING legal. We make BEER DRINKING legal. [Text Missing.] As the Gentile age was issued in under riotiness, and DRINKING, and women, and carousing, the Gentile dispensation is going out in the same manner. We're going out to chaos from DRINKING, drunken. Our little teen-age children out here in school, they start them off with smoking cigarettes, and they go from there to marijuana. [Text Missing.] We've been a great nation. We've been a great people. We've been a great church. We've been a great everything. But I'll tell you; everything mortal has to give away. And this--the time is at hand. I tell you; everything is laying in it. And the world has become to one great big chaos of just--of corruption and stink before God. This nation, its WHISKEY DRINKING, BEER DRINKING, and our taxes has paid on this WHISKEY and stuff which supports our nation, and its blood money. If you think it's wrong to drink WHISKEY and you say, "Leave it alone, preacher, you oughtn't to say nothing about DRINKING. It's our American right." I know it's your American rights, but it's not your heavenly rights.” [The Handwriting On The Wall 56-0902 Jeffersonville, IN]

“I said, "Delbert, are you a Christian?" He said, "No, I'm not." I said, "Let's talk about that first, Delbert." I said, "Aren't you ashamed? Your mother was a Christian, wasn't she?" Said, "Yes, sir, she was." And he said, "Brother Branham, I--I don't know, I just... I just got out." Said, "The first cigarette I smoked, and some of the boys told me," said, "just to be smart, and then the girls begin to tease me, and I started smoking." Said, "I didn't mean to become that way." And said, "I started DRINKING, and I didn't mean to, just a sociable drink, a glass of BEER." [Faith In The Son Of God 52-0715 Hammond, IN]

“He knows just to--what to present before you and make you fall for it. He knows just how well to put the smell of WHISKEY, how tantalizing to make a cigarette, how well to put a--a place out here of a young boy and girl just in their teen-age, DRINKING BEER. He don't try to place the picture a few years later and look at them old batty-eyed hags. That's right. You'd be daresn't to put a picture of a complete nude woman, but he knows just how much clothes to take off of her to make her tempting. Sure he does. He knows human nature. He knows how to catch you in it too. And he's awake day and night, going about like a roaring lion devouring what he will. Certainly, he is. So there he knew just how to do that.” [Elisha The Prophet, Chicago IL 56-1002e]

“The devil putting all that stuff around, young kids, DRINKING BEER, Ortel's Ninety-Two, and Schlitz and this kind of stuff, it's... That's a lie. And nothing but... That turns young men and women to batty-eyed wretches to drink that stuff. It's the devil. It fills the insane institution. It fills the prostitute houses. It does everything else. It breaks up homes. It causes rape and murder and everything else.” [Painted-Face Jezebel, Chicago IL 56-1005]

“When Elijah came up, we seen they didn't live the right kind of life, for they said, "It's too strict for around here when Elijah comes around."

I imagine if--if it'd be today, they'd make them get rid of all their television programs, and all their old love story magazines, and quit their smoking and DRINKING, and all these things, and clean up.” [A Secondhanded Robe, Brooklyn NY 56-1206]

“That's the way it is with a Christian, today, when he's born again. It's not... It's filthy for him to associate where people are DRINKING and telling dirty jokes, and women naked. And every... It, it's--it's filthiness. Oh, blessed be the Lord! We are pilgrims here. We're strangers here. The spirit has been converted, and we're looking for a City where women don't wear shorts. We're looking for a City where they don't have BEER taverns. We're looking for a City wherein dwelleth righteousness, so we're pilgrims.” [Hebrews Chapter Three, Jeffersonville IN 57-0901m]

“We also found out that we have a handwriting on the wall, and the same conditions, morally speaking. They were DRINKING WINE with the ill-famed women in those days, called concubines, and today called, well, movies stars, and so forth. They were in their class then, but now they're just scattered all everywhere.” [The Called-Out, Chicago IL 58-0109]

“People today, the teenagers out in high school with BEER parties, and DRINKING, and living, and little girls living in adultery, little boys, and things like that. What kind of a generation's coming up after this? What makes these little girls act like that? Their mammy was a flapper; their grandmammy was a chorus girl. And He said He'd visit the iniquity of the parents upon the children and the children's children till the third and fourth generation. What can you expect any more?” [The Baptism Of The Holy Spirit, Jeffersonville IN 58-0928m]

“I read in the "Reader's Digest" recently that the doctors pronounced how many... tens of thousands of Americans this year were doomed to death, because of smoking cigarettes. How many in the insane institution will take this year because of DRINKINGWHISKEY? How many homes will be broke up because of modern DRINKING, sociable drinks, selling WHISKEY, BEER, just at random? And tens of thousands of church members indulge in it. How can we ever expect God to bless that?” [Be Certain Of God, Cleveland TN 59-0708e]

“While you are in silence and in prayer, is there in this building this morning, those who have not DRINKING from that fountain, that the desires of the world is still in your life, and you would like to change your DRINKING place this morning, or the usury of your money? You'd like to come and buy from God, without money, without price, honey and milk, joys of WINE, would you raise your hand, say, "Remember me, Brother Branham, as you pray." God bless you, sir. God bless you, sir. God bless you, sister. Is there others who'd say, "Remember me, Brother Branham, as you pray"?” [Without Money Or Without Price, Jeffersonville IN 59-08020]
