I think I wrote before about this thing I read that really impacted me, how the guy was saying if people are valuing the world over Christ, the goal is not to get them to love the world less, but to love Christ more. I think I’m starting to have the same attitude with getting drunk. I dunno, I don’t think I’m gonna tell people to not get drunk anymore. Instead, I’m gonna tell them to be filled with the Holy Spirit. Whatever that means. But yeah, I dunno, the whole don’t get drunk thing, I dunno if that works and even if it does I think it misses the point.
Honestly though, I’m not sure what it means experientially to be drunk, or even what a buzz is. I’m not a huge drinker, and when I do drink, it’s almost always with food. Never did the high school drink to get wasted thing. So yeah, not sure what a buzz is. I have gotten dangerously sleepy before. Is that drunk? Maybe it is. But I didn’t feel nauseous, nor did I have a hangover, just got sleepy. I dunno.
So yeah, no more “don’t get drunk” from me. Just, be filled with the Holy Spirit. That’s all.
