Yes, drinking alcohol can be a great sin. A little bit. But that’s not to say that it is a sin as a means of avoiding a more serious sin with the intent to commit it. As St. Jerome says, drinking isn’t a means to drink and it isn’t for living. Therefore, if you want to avoid sins it would be better to avoid alcohol altogether. For instance, you can avoid sexual sins by not having sex. If you want a little more control over your sexual desires, I would recommend that you make love a regular part of your life even if it doesn’t involve drinking. Sex in marriage won’t take you places. You have to give it a place. But, I am not implying that avoiding sex is a valid excuse for not drinking. No amount of alcohol can change the fact that you are having sex and doing it. So, if you want to avoid having sex in a serious relationship you shouldn’t drink.
So you have a hard on for alcohol, what do you do? Well, I will leave you with one Bible verse that has served me well in my decision to abstain and that verse is Romans 13:9-11.
9 The love of money is a root of all kinds of wickedness, and a root of all kinds of selfishness: it is the root of extortion, of sexual immorality, of adulterers, of women addicted to prostitution, 9 of persons who sell their bodies for money, of extortioners, of people who commit sodomy, 10 of liars, perjurers, and whatever else is contrary to sound doctrine. 11 For the love of money is a root of all kinds of wickedness, and a root of all kinds of selfishness: it is the root of extortion, of sexual immorality, of adulterers, of women addicted to prostitution, 11 of persons who sell their bodies for money, of extortioners, of people who commit sodomy,
I hope that this article has helped to answer the question of what is going on when people say that drinking is a sin. Hopefully, with this information out of my own head, when someone asks the question “how should I avoid getting into a serious relationship with alcohol?” I can give them some insight as to what those “lessons” would be. The most obvious answer would be that you shouldn’t drink. But if someone else needs some clarification on that point I can recommend that you read what Pope Paul has to say on it here.
