6Which of these reasons (if any) do you agree with and why? The BIBLEThe BODYCRIMEFAMILYBEHAVIOURMY OPINION…The Bible teaches that Christians should obey the law of the land, which includes the law on drugs.Our body is a gift from God and we should not abuse or misuse it – drugs harm the body and that which God has created.Many drug users turn to crime to fund their habit, this leads to sin and goes against the teaching of Christianity.Drug abuse can break down marriages and family relationships and can make people anti-social.Illegal drugs have a powerful effect on people’s behaviour and can make them behave badly or act in ways Christians should not.Which of these reasons (if any) do you agree with and why?

8HOWEVER there are more mixed opinions when it comes to alcohol. MOST Christians would choose NOT to smoke as even a small amount is harmful to the body.Unlike illegal drugs, alcohol and tobacco are not ‘forbidden’ in Christianity. SOME Christians therefore choose to drink and/or smoke.
9Watch the following clip and try to give 2 arguments FOR the consumption of alcohol and 2 arguments AGAINST. Look out for the odd religious argument!Before we look at Christian teachings relating to the consumption of alcohol lets have a look at some arguments in general.

11Christian attitudes to alcohol… So what does CHRISTIANITY teach about the consumption of alcohol?
12Reasons for drinking alcohol in moderation...… MANY Christians DO choose to drink alcohol in SMALL AMOUNTS because... Watch the following picture clues to EXPLAIN WHY.
13During the LAST SUPPER, Jesus gave his disciples wine during the first HOLY COMMUNION or EUCHARIST.
14Jesus himself drank wine and even preformed a miracle at a wedding turning water into wine.
15The Bible does not forbid the drinking of alcohol.
16Most Christian churches, such as Roman Catholics and Church of England, do not forbid the drinking of alcohol and use wine during holy communion.
17Christian attitudes to alcohol… None of the Christian teachings suggest that drinking alcohol is SINFUL.However there are many teachings that warn against drinking too much because…‘Getting drunk on wine leads to bad behaviour’(Ephesians 5:18)What is the meaning of this quote?What does it mean by BAD BEHAVIOUR?So Christians who do drink should do so in MODERATION.
18Christian attitudes to alcohol… There are SOME Christians who choose NOT to drink alcohol AT ALL (e.g. The Salvation Army).These Christians DO NOT believe drinking alcohol is SINFUL but that it is simple best to AVOID it.Use the picture clues to complete your sheet EXPLAINING WHY.
19Drinking alcohol can impair a person’s judgments and reduce their ability to act in a Christian way.
20People drank wine in biblical times because there was little else for them to drink – as there are lots of other types of drink available now there is no need for alcohol.
21Drinking can cause you to offend others so it is better to not drink.
22In biblical times people drank wine or ale only; today alcohol is much stronger and therefore more dangerous to a persons health and society.
