Wine is a mocker and beer a brawler; whoever is led astray by them is not wise.
It is not for kings, O Lemuel– not for kings to drink wine, not for rulers to crave beer,
This day I call heaven and earth as witnesses against you that I have set before you life and death, blessings and curses. Now choose life, so that you and your children may live
1 Corinthians 6:12
“Everything is permissible for me”–but not everything is beneficial. “Everything is permissible for me”–but I will not be mastered by anything
Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.
1 Peter 5:8
Be self-controlled and alert. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour.
The rest of mankind that were not killed by these plagues still did not repent of the work of their hands; they did not stop worshiping demons, and idols of gold, silver, bronze, stone and wood–idols that cannot see or hear or walk.
Nor did they repent of their, murders, their magic arts, their sexual immorality or their thefts.
Note: The word for “magic arts” or “sorceries” in Rev 9:20 means ‘drugs’, and is derived from the Greek root for the word ‘pharmakeia’ which is where we get the word ‘pharmaceuticals’, for prescription drugs.
