    Either the Bible will keep you from sin, or temptation will keep you from the Bible.

    The Bible says “The wages of sin is death.
    Sin “always” has long term consequences.

    Some die from intoxication but many who do this do not die a physical death, so what dies? Emotions partially die, or are damaged. Anger breaks out, fear is boosted. Purpose dies or is damaged. When we choose other things over God’s purpose and will, a place in our heart dies. We feel empty. We need something.

    Proverbs 20:Wine is a mocker, strong drink is raging: and whosoever is deceived thereby is not wise.”

    Second, many read this article, only a few read the key verse from Proverbs 20 until they have a proper fear of consequences.

    Third, someday I hope to be approached in heaven by a man who says:

    “I read your article about Proverbs 20, then I read the key verse over and over again until I had it memorized word for word. From that day forward I started to understand the consequences. From that day forward I used the Bible as my tool to quit.”
