    I understand that the newer religions have a different view on things, but is there any chance you could explain your religious implications of not drinking, or your religion's implications?

    Sorry it took me so long to reply to this, i'm always unsure whether hanging around on this forum at work is wrong or whether i'm learning by reading through the threads

    Anyway, when Jesus drank 'wine', it was actually nothing more then fruit juice from what I understand. It was called wine in the scriptures, but wine then doesn't mean what it means today. Some Christian religions don't believe this, but others do.

    We don't drink alcohol because of something called the "word of wisdom" which prevents and encourages a numbers of things including, no smoking, no alcohol to be consumed, no drugs (doesn't include medical drugs), no tea or coffee, meat to be eaten sparingly etc etc.

    It is interesting that all of these things have in recent times been proved to be the most healthy option compared to their alternatives. None of these things had been proved to be unhealthy at the time this word of wisdom was written.

    Sorry for the lecture, I get carried away easily

    It's amazing how threads turn out. This one started out as a rumintaion on the use of smilies. It's now become a comparative theology 101.
