    Not necessarily the same, but I had the same concerns about soda. I would normally drink a diet soda everyday-sometimes more. I once had a friend in my church say a strong drink doesn't always mean alcohol. I'm not saying she was right or wrong, but it is worth some pause and consideration. It wasn't easy to cut it out, but I do feel much better and I know my body is healthier for it :)

    Seems too much of anything may be sin?

    Although never too much love.

    But we don't suffer with that one too much
    do we?

    Do you include, or mean, or allow the free love hippie type love in the 60's ? (or only for teens and young adults?)

    If you have one handy
    Love is described in the Bible.

    Sometimes it's like giving lessons around here.

    It's not understood by most readers, apparently, from the threads and posts and ideas and so forth.
    That was the point, sort of - the world's way, the world's love, instead of God's Way, is more common.

    “Hast thou faith? have it to thyself before God. Happy is he that condemneth not himself in that thing which he alloweth. And he that doubteth is damned if he eat, because he eateth not of faith: for whatsoever is not of faith is sin.” Romans 14:22–23 (KJV 1900)

    But if you think it is sin, it becomes sin (even though it isn't) because you cannot sin and have faith.

    I quit smoking because it is harmful. Also sugar except for once in awhile. I drink coffee.....etc. But all things in moderation.

    Are you familiar with "The Pulse Test", or even know how to check your pulse rate (like at the wrist) for a full minute ? If something is harmful, it raises your pulse rate.

    Depends.

    Are the energy drinks offered to idols before consumption? (Romans 14)

    Anything not done is righteousness is sin. All things are permissible but not all things are profitable. All foods are clean. Don't put a stumbling block before your brothers and sisters in Christ.

    Sort it out.

    Why drink energy drinks? Lack of sleep? Lack of nutrition? Lack of exercise? Because if its any of those things then you know what to do. Btw, an apple is better than a cup of coffee (says the guy with a Starbucks intravenous bag in his cupboard :wink:) and b-complex vitamins will help with energy and alertness.

    In the book, over 1000 people were subjects.

    Most of them , or many of them, were also afflicted with various things.

    SURPRISING to the author, many of their afflictions WENT AWAY! (using the method of the pulse test)....

    Not surprising any more. It works 90% of the time, if the parameters are faithfully attended to.

    Now then, whenever any one of the subjects, or anyone who has utilized the pulse test, wants to try something to eat or drink that is new to them, they can tell in an hour if it is good for them or not.

    What if the apple has too many pesticides? (and the coffee is made clean, with distilled water, and taken with honey and acv- apple cider vinegar, raw, unfiltered) ...?

    What if the vitamins are made by a company that uses a gmo filler, causing stomach problems ?

    Pick which depraved sin the depraved sinner living in a depraved sinful world wishes to avoid.

    Or move to Burundi, Congo, Somalia or Syria where you'll be thankful for an apple sprayed with pesticides.

    If you don't know the answers to your own inquiries then t is not the apple or the coffee that is the problem. I suggest you pick up a copies of two books and read them: 1) the Francis Schaeffer trilogy, and 2) "Total Truth" by Nancy Pearcey. If you live in the continental US and will commit to reading the first I will send you a copy general delivery to a post office near you. Just message me and I'll make the arrangements.

    Wouldn't that be something they choose for themselves? I don't think we should choose for them....

    What ever made you think I don't know the answers? But the question was to you, (though also as an illustration for others who are or may be or may not be aware or unaware of the trouble with assuming food is okay to eat), what you think, which I don't know, and which I don't know if it is helpful ?

    Yep.

    If you know that, then why ask me something about someone else you already know is something for them to choose?

    Whatever made you think the "you" was specifically about you personally? I was asked by one person about something pertaining to another, that applies to all. But some unstated reason the answer is interpreted to be specifically about you.

    Relevant to the specifics of this op, I answered the question asked, and answered it in a manner applicable to all. Why would any other understanding be applied in an inrenationally public discussion forum?

    Because if I'm not assuming anything about you personally but am presumed to be doing so that's not on me. It's a walking away from the mirror forgetfully concern, maybe a log/speck concern. So we talking about the op

    or not?

    If you think it is sinful to drink high energy drinks, then of course it is a sinful practice.

    Why not go with the sugar free variations. My flatmate is a coke addict but he drinks the sugar free version of coke. Took him two years to convert to sugar free coke and that is all he drinks now.

    It is easier to give up the flavored drinks and just drink water.
