(b) jesus (pbuh) was no "killjoy," the imbibers say, he turned water into wine in his very first recorded miracle in the bible:

jesus saith unto them. fill the waterpots with water. and they filled them up to the brim.

and he saith unto them. draw out now...

when the ruler of the feast had tasted the water that was made wine ...

and saith ... (why) thou hast kept the good wine until now.

(holy bible) john 2: 7-10

since this alleged miracle, wine continues to flow like water in christendom.

sober advice

(c) saint paul the thirteenth self-appointed disciple of christ, the real founder of christianity, advises his new convert protege — timothy, born of a greek father and a jewish mother:

drink no longer water, but use a little wine for thy stomach's sake and thine often infirmities.

(holy bible) 1 timothy 5: 23

the christians accept all the bible quotations on stimulating and intoxicating drinks given above as the infallible word of god. they believe that the holy ghost inspired the authors to pen such dangerous advices. rev. dummelow seems to have some qualms about this verse. he says.

"it teaches us that if the body needs the stimulant of wine. it is right to take it in moderation."
