Reno Omokri took to social media to share his thoughts on the subject of smoking and drinking which some Christians perceive to be sin.
A fan identified as Mr_Vibes2 quizzed Reno on his views concerning the smoking of weed and drinking of alcohol. Reno explained to him that he does not see anything wrong with drinking alcohol as the Bible does not frown on it.
He wrote: Dear @Mr_Vibes2,
I do not smoke, whether weed or tobacco. However, I cannot say it is a sin. What I can say though is that I do not like the behaviour of many people who smoke weed. On alcohol, I avoid it for reasons best known to me which I would not want made public, but it is not a sin. Christ Himself drank alcohol (Matthew 11:19). Furthermore, He told us that we would also drink wine in heaven, or what some people call God’s Kingdom (Matthew 26:29). Some people find that hard to swallow, but even the Old Testament had earlier told us that spirit beings drink wine (Judges 9:13). The argument by some people that He was referring to fruit juice is just silly, because all wine is alcoholic. Fruit juice is NOT wine. Moreover, we know that the water He turned to wine was alcoholic, because the governor of the feast referred to it in John 2:10.
