    Do not drink wine or other alcoholic beverages
    . . . when you come into the tent of meeting.

    Lev. 10:9.

    Does that passage mean that we must not drink anything alcoholic before going to a Christian meeting? Think about these points: We are not under the Law. (Rom. 10:4) In some lands, our fellow believers use alcoholic beverages in moderation at meals before attending meetings. Four cups of wine were used at the Passover. When instituting the Memorial, Jesus had his apostles drink wine that represented his blood. (Matt. 26:27)

    The Bible condemns heavy drinking and drunkenness.

    (1 Cor. 6:10;1 Tim. 3:8)

    And many Christians would feel impelled by their conscience to abstain completely from alcoholic beverages before engaging in any form of sacred service. However, circumstances vary from one country to another, and the important thing is for Christians to conduct themselves with holiness that pleases God.—Lev. 10:10.
