EW King has some words of wisdom today concerning your satanic friends at worldly weddings you might be attending. Beware if those evil people who offer you a glass of champagne and a cigar! Evil dudes! Evil! Evil! Evil!
Those true Christians who speak about the Commandments of God are usually and quickly attacked as “legalists”. Satan has got his language down in labeling things. If a Christian attends a wedding and does not drink alcohol or smoke he may be approached by a so called “friend” saying to him: “We are going to make a toast so here is some Champaign and a cigar.” If you tell him you do not drink alcohol or smoke he might ask you to pretend for the picture. Should you? No! He might suggest to you; “Come on! Don’t be a fanatic!” But the Bible is clear; “Make no provision for the flesh, to fulfil the lusts thereof.” [Romans 13:14] And we are not to even flirt with the appearance of sin. [1 Thessalonians 5:22] They will argue with you: “You are out of balance!” In other words, they recommend that we balance our Christian lives with a little sin. Do not listen to them!
So what's a poor dude in the Church of God to do when offered that evil cigar and champagne?
God asks us to “flee from sin”. It is okay to just get up and leave the areas of temptation if we can. Run to God and not to the fallen mob! True Christians are a remnant, a small group. That is just the way it is. [Luke 12:32]I know a LOT of COG ministers that like their cigars with brandy or other liquors. These guys are in UCG, LCG and COGWA at the moment.
Champagne certainly is not frowned upon by many ministers I have seen over the years while seeing them get drunk on it in ministerial dining at the Feast.
Only EeeeW King seems to have an issue with it. Is he jealous that no one offered him some bubbly and a Cohiba?
