I first thought of titling this article “Why I Can Drink Beer, but You Can’t. This longer-than-usual-post is offered as a general response to multiple conversations I’ve had with Christians recently about the use of alcohol, particularly one that ensued recently on my Facebook page when I posted an invitation to the Beer...
