Alcohol

people are stupid. downright insane idiots. psychotic morons. and on top of that, they drink alcoholic beverages. now, i am not saying that all those who enjoy alcohol are idiots. just the vast majority. while i was at a 4th of july celebration, i observed a couple and the amounts of wine they both drank. an entire bottle each. these were large bottles, too. mind you, they had 2 little girls that they had to drive home that night. one about 2-3, and one about 4-5 months. the mother was nursing while drinking. i noticed that she couldn't even get herself another galss without spilling it all over herself. wow.

normally, i would laugh at them and say something along the lines of "what morons". but i found myself getting mad at them. the two people were obviously intoxicated (totally sloshed). and they had kids that they had totake home. not to mention the fact that the mother was nursing and drinking at the same time. i wanted to go chew her out. what and idoit! it made me really mad. i don't care if people drink. its not really my business. but these people had kids, and were basicly giving it to the baby that was being nursed, and endangering numerous peoples lives with there drunkenness. why can't people think through what there actions bring about? i wish that both of them had gotten arrested and thrown in the klink for what they did.

to eveybody out there, listen carefully - when you drink, you are affected. the alcohol will do something to you. don't be a stupid idiot and think that it won't. don't drink and take the responsiblity of another persons life by driving a vehicle. think things through. and don't plead insanity in court when you are being tried for manslaughter because you got in an accident because you were drunk. my gosh. sometimes i hate this world and the people in it.

I completely agree with you on this post. Sometimes things people do make no sense at all to me and it frustrates me. But unfortunately, Joy's right and it's not going to get any better. So for now, I can only pray that innocent lives we be protected by the selfishness of the people surrounding them.

But you know what bothers me more? Is that a lot of people who claim to be Christians are the ones getting drunk and stuff. It's sad.

i totally understand, yoshi! you wonder how people could be so selfish and careless. yet, i also wonder where i would be if i didn't grow up in a christian home and found my source for freedom at an early age. would i not be like them?

Thanks Joe, it's very encouraging to know that there are others out there who are as upset about this as I am. I live with it. I'm surrounded by it. Nearly every girl in my dorm would get completely sloshed each and every weekend. These people are so hopeless, and without purpose it makes me wonder how they get out of bed each morning. No wonder Prozac is the leading drug. People have tried to substitute alcohol, sex, drugs, etc. for God. It doesn't work.

Joe, this is random (and this is a good post so everyone else just ignore this comment and focus on his point) but does your brother check his e-mail during the summer?

Unfortunately even being a sinner is no excuse for wasting yourself. So many things have made me sad recently.. concering the actions of people. and unfortunately all, the only person i can change is myself. But if i pray, God can change others.

Okay, the phrase isn't bad, but it's context is. He's not exactly a POSITIVE biblical role model...

Joe, write a new blog. Those of us with desk jobs need something new to read. I'm becoming an obsessed and bored maniac who checks her e-mail and a dozen blogs each half a dozen times a day.

Im tired of when people respond to the statement "Jesus and his disciples drank alchohol" with "Well, since there was only very little alchohol in it, its still sinful to drink". That response is so illogical. There was still some alchohol present in the drinks (no matter how small of a percentage it was), and Jesus drank it. Since Jesus cannot sin, it can only be concluded that drinking alchohol is not sin.

DRINKING alcohol is not a sin. But I think Joe's point was (correct me if I'm wrong) that abusing alcohol is the sin. Gluttony is a sin, but eating isnt. Alcohol is not wrong, getting drunk is.

Whew. My brillian logic astounds me.

Moderation is the key for everything in life. Think about it. I had a friend who is 16 who had 21 beers in like a matter of hours at a party. Moderation issues... and many others. With the Cain thing. Who cares who the heck you quote? Don't be so picky. "Nata" remember the only thing different in you and them is Jesus. Nothing else.

I ate at a Chinese restaurant with Mark's sister a while back. But hardly anyone knows about it.

Is Mark's sister cute? Is that why you ate Chinese with her? Chinese is some of my favorite food, so I only eat it with people I like/think are cute.

Joe, are you on SMITE, because if so, you are missing the incredible amount of people that are commenting on your blog.

I know I seem like a complete computer junky, because I keep commenting and reading your blog over and over. But keep in mind that I sit at a computer all day and am expected to look busy. And also, I am in a southern Indiana self-proclaimed hickville with absolutely no social life.

And your blog is nice. :)

But, SMITE or no SMITE, I hope you had an awesome week!!! You are the greatest little-brother's-best-friend going!!! :) Just thought you should know...

I never found my sister cute. But then again, she is my sister. Right? and why did you go out to lunch with her? I know she is single(or so I think) but she is going into college.
