yum....the taste of O'Douls
I have a question that has recently been nagging at my taste buds. A few of my friends down here have been having trouble with the word of wisdom-mainly drinking. Obivously we have been taught that this ordinance was put into place to help protect our bodies, and to also protect those around us that may suffer from our actions-drunk driving..ect. However, they justify it and say that everything in moderation is good and the it was only put in place because, face it, some people don't know when enough is enough. The Church isn't going to put a declaration saying, "You don't have to obey the Word of Wisdom, as long as you can control yourself."
So, I'm curious, where does breaking the Word of Wisdowm rank on the sinning scale? Is it really that bad to break this law as long as you don't let it out of control?
