Are Christians allowed to drink alcohol-containing grape-juice = wine?

Some think that Christians are not allowed to drink wine.

And that when the Bible speaks of wine, the Bible speaks of non-alcoholic grape juice.

What do you think?

They drank real wine in the Bible. Jesus turned the water into real wine. Catholic communion uses real wine for the blood. Drinking wine is not a sin. :oldthumbsup:

p.s. - we (here is the States) refer to Schorles as "Spritzers" (though our spritzers are typically freshly made, rather than bottled or canned, they are still the same thing, wine mixed with some kind of mineral/carbonated water).

Yes, I also know the word "Spritzer". I know it as the Austrian word for our Schorle. :)
It is unclear where the word "Schorle" comes from.
Some say that it is what Germans understood when they heard a Frenchman say: "Toujours l'amour!" :)

Baháʼís are forbidden to drink alcohol or to take drugs, except by a doctor's order, because God has given human beings reason which is taken away by intoxicants that lead the mind astray.[19] The non-medicinal use of opium and other mind-altering drugs is particularly condemned in the Baháʼí scriptures.[19] Baháʼís are also asked to try to avoid working in jobs that involve the manufacturing or large-scale sale of alcohol and to avoid any involvement in the drug trade.[19] Smoking tobacco is not forbidden but is discouraged

Baháʼí laws - Wikipedia


Then the Bahai Faith is nothing for me.

Sometimes I dilute my wine with mineral water.
A mixture of wine and mineral water is called a "Schorle" in German.

I stick to a sangria, so I like to dilute my wine too, LOL! Actually, if I drink wine, I have instant ear ache and headache. I looked it up and perhaps I have an allergy to it :(

Jesus drank wine so, yes. There's a difference between drinking wine for the sake of enjoying wine and drinking wine to the point of drunkenness. Getting drunk off wine is a sin but enjoying a glass of wine with dinner is not.

So far 7 out of 7 say: yes
As a Christian, I am allowed to drink wine, but as a Christian I wouldn't do so. First, one side of my family has a problem with alcohol, as warned me by a grandfather who once had a drinking problem. Second, I am no longer physically able to imbibe alcohol. Third, I live in an area where tea-totaling among Christians is the norm. If I could drink wine, I wouldn't do so because it would be a stumbling block.
