60 years pastor, now 80, many years anti-alcohol, now don't drink but see the wine as a blessing for gladness of heart. see psalm 104:14-15. God causes the vegetation (etc), and wine that gladdens the heart of man, to make his face to shine more than oil etc. AMP VER. SBC doctrine was against spirits of anything, even it seems sometimes even the Holy Spirit. Now they have finally seen the scriptural gifts of the spirit as needful for today, perhaps they will see that we should obey all the counsel of
Throughout the New Testament drinking alcohol is addressed, but always in the sense of not getting drunk. Paul advised Timothy to drink a little wine for his stomach. Jesus converted water into wine. It is hard for me to believe that he converted it into grape juice since the wedding guests would obviously know the difference.
Until Prohibition, most churches here in the U.S. used wine in communion. Today we seem to be taking a legalistic approach to what should be a spirit issue. I agree with the article one must consider the situation, consider biblical teaching, and then make the best decision.
Wow! The comments posted hear seem very pharisaical and completely miss the point of the passage being illustrated through this story. My hope would be for people sitting in judgement to first seek understanding of the pastor's heart. Participating in the toast was done out of love, not legalism.

Liquor is also called spirits - and is NOT the Holy Spirit.
Jesus never 'made' or 'consumed' alcoholic drinks. Fermentation in God's Word always refers to sin, and our Lord Jesus Christ would have none of that.
