"Is Drinking Alcohol A Sin?" - Pastor Chris Oyakhilome Answers Critical Question

Speaking in a viral video is the renowned Nigerian Televangelist, Pastor Chris Oyakhilome addressing the controversial issue in Christendom, which is "Is drinking alcohol is a sin."

Here is everything Pastor Chris Oyakhilome said in the video:
"The Bible didn't say that drinking alcohol is a sin, didn't say that. What the Bible says, is for us not to drink in excess and remember he was not making alcohol an issue anytime, because he doesn't want us to do anything in excess anyway. See, God doesn't want you to eat in excess or drink water in excess, he's against only anything you do in excess. So, what the Lord really tell us is not to drink in excess. I'll read that to you in a moment and that is very important, but you know the more you grow in spiritual things, the more you leave things that are unnecessary behind. Your Christian growth is not just living bad things for good things. It means good things for the best things.

Let me read some things to you from the book of Ephesians 5:8, it says, "And be not drunk with wine wherein is excess but be filled with the Spirit" it tells us not to be drunk with wine. The Amplified version says, "And do not be drunk with wine for that is debauchery, whatever be filled and stimulated with the Holy Ghost" so that's what God wants us to do. He didn't say don't drink, no. He said, don't be filled with wine, don't be drunk with wine. So, don't make wine an issue of your preaching when you talk to people about Jesus Christ, because as they grow in the things of God, they will live the wine behind, if they don't find any serious benefit in it. So, it's not an issue, stop making it an issue. God didn't make it an issue, neither should you."
