Liquid Devil!

The Bible And The Bottle

By Dr. Hugh Pyle


VII. The Liquid Devil Brings Damnation for Eternity

   In Matthew 24:49-51 we read of the evil man who believes that the Lord delays His coming "and shall begin to smite his fellowservants, and to eat and drink with the drunken; The Lord of that servant shall come in a day when he looketh not for him, and in a hour that he is not aware of, And shall cut him asunder, and appoint him his portion with the hypocrites: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth."
   God say, "If we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another" (1st John 1:7). So, walking in the darkness and depravity of strong drink one cannot have fellowship with God! Jesus said, "Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God" (John 3:3). And the last book in the Bible gives us a solemn warning that there shall in no wise enter into Heaven anything that defileth, even as God has before stated,  "No drunkard shall inherit the kingdom of heaven." Thus we have the fearful warning, "whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cats into the lake of fire" (Revelation 20:15).
   But here is good news! All that sinner looks for in the bottle is to be found in Christ!

1- Does he want warmth? This is to be found in our Saviour.
2- Is he seeking friendship? Then learn with multitudes of Christians, "What a friend we have in Jesus!"
3- Does he attempt to escape from something? Then he discovers wonderful new life in Him who said, "If ye know
     these things, happy are ye if ye do them" (John 13:17).
4- Is it courage he wants? Then let him learn about Christ from who said, "I can do all thins through Christ which
     strengtheneth me" ( Philippians 4:13).
5- If it is happiness the drinker seeks, let him discover in the lives of those who are truly surrendered to Christ what real
     happiness is, and remember that God promises, "No good thing will he withhold from them that walk uprightly" (Psalm

   Which will it be--the bottle or the Bible?
   In a meeting I had conducted in Alabama recently a man raised his hand for prayer on two different occasions, then would turn and leave the church. The third time he attended the he seemed to have lost his conviction. I learned that this man had been brought up in the home of drinking parents. One drunk brother had burned to death in his home a few months before, and another drinking brother had died in a wreck. This is a sample of the blight of booze. Any of these men could have been wonderfully saved and gloriously transformed by the message of the Bible and the Salvation Christ affords.
   Remember, "the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord" (Romans 6:23). Jesus said, "For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?" (Mark 8:36). Salvation is the answer to the Liquid Devil!
   Recently in the West a young man was lifted out of a wild scorching canyon where he faced almost inevitable death if rescue had not come in the form of a helicopter from above. Every one reading these words who is without Christ is in a "wild scorching canyon" of sin and it will mean certain doom for you eternally unless you allow One from above, even Lord Jesus Christ, to lift you out of the pit of sin and bring you to Himself. "Therefore, if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new" (2nd Corinthians 5:17).
