THE WINE QUESTION.
BY REV. J B. JOHNSON.
SCRIPTURAL ARGUMENTS.
We come now to consider
Mr. Both well's Biblical argu
ment.. It is remarkpble what
knowledge of scripture, the
bu8ine88 of making and Belling
wine, beer and whiskey haa de
veloped. . The Bible society
should welcome dealers in the
"arderitr "as co-laborers in the.
diffujion of Bible nowledge.
Wouldn't it be well 10 establish
Bible depositories in the w'ne
cellars and lager, beer saloon!
rB"f-tenders might be employ
ed as colporteurs, and thus fos-
ward I be good cause. But it I
remember ritbtly many ot her
enormous etlls have taken ref
uge behind ibe Bitile&rfegd
there is no book with which he
devil himself is more familiar
and which lie loves more Ire-
quenily to quote. Ha quoted
scripture to our iSavior to in:
duee hiru to .cast 'hrrnself-ol
from the pinhacle ot the tern
pie. tie quoted scripture to
justify negro bin very in the
South. Be quoted scripture to
justify the iniquities of Mor-
inon polygamy : and in each
case with as truthful anpli
cation as' he quotes 'scripture
to-day to justify'the sale of In
toxicatmg liquors. This thing
of quoting scripture to juslily
great' abuses and great wrongs
liai- been tried too many times
to work wiih intelligent Chris
tian people. The cloven hoof
Is top prominent. ..
Mr. Boihwell, with great In
genuity marshals an array 01
scriptures 'before ut which
seem to him, no doubt', 10
lrHve, absnlujely,' no 'ground
lor total abstinence to stand
upon. "
Let ns see.
1st. He quotes for us a se
ries of passages from the Old
Testament, which I wiil not re
peat, lor they are quoted cor
rectly, I believe, in Mr. BotJi
well's communication. The
passages indicate that' wine
was used with the .sanction ol
Jod by the Isitehles, both as a
beverage imd an ofiering unto
God. Though I do not rest my
answer on ibis ground, let mj
say that it is by rro meann.cer-
IhIii the wine so used was in
toxicaling. Learned men lion
estly d.fifer on that point. The
authority ot a Jr Wish Rabbi on
the question should lie conoid "
ered very good. Ve have a
statement ol the Rabbi Lewey
formerly of Jerusalem, made in
the , New Y"Tk Methodist
preacher's meeting and pub-
ishedin the National Temper-
Alice advocate lor April 1874
He said that the Jews never
used any fermented wines at
their feasts or festivals.- A con
vention of 1.600 Rabbis', and
eadinir men had careiully- ex
amined their custonfs and tra
ditions, and found them all
against th use of fermented
wine. They made wine for
leasts and festivals by taking
one poind ol raisins, chopDing
them up, pouring oti a quart o)
water and letting it stand for a
day or two, and had excellent
wine. -, Ue believed it was the
wine Christ made at (Jan a, and
that was used in the saciamenl
Tbe Jews used no fermented
wine at mamige feasts. ,
The Rev. Mr. Biggs took the
ground that-there were two
kinds of wines spoken of in tbe
Bible, the use of .tine sanction
ed as . pleasant and harmless;
and the use of . the' Other con
demned as antoxicaling. Mr.
Biggs Bipported tils position by
very strong arguments which,
had 1 the learning, 1 have' not,
the deire to repeat,, fur It is
not wnfjiu the purpose' of 'my
argument.' The -t most: that i
hliall'say on this point is that.
i he burden 'of ' proof lies upon
those 'ft D'.appealrttVlib .Bijs)
I counli)uiat ill ' ua'-of. lt
toxicatiog drinks at tbe pres
ent day. They must .how that
the wine sanctioned in the Bi
ble is identical in its intoxicat
ing qualities with tbe intoxi
eating drink which they de
fend.. ......
: But should tbey even show
that, it would not convince me
of the rightfulness ot the sale
and use of those drinks under
the rhiuged circumstances ot
the present day.: ; '
, Wha't authority binding one
and upon free, civilized, Chris
lian nineteenth century Amen
eans.'have the drinking cus
toms of a riAtion nf fraaiTmiin
just emerged from the most de
basing slavery,' seni! barbarous
aiid inclined to be idolatroun,
even ' though "those "cuatoma
might have been sanctioned by
God? Are the Jews to be ntir
models of virtue? Whv then
should we.bave passed through
such a blbedy. war to eradicate
slavery - when the Jews. held
slaves under the sanction and
even comman'd ol God? Let us
follow the example of the Jews
and have slaves again says the
reasoning of the wine apologist.
'. Also upon the same reason
ing why not all of us become
Mormons and have polygamy,
mce those good old fathers of
the church, the patrianhs, had
wives and concubines, and Sol
omon, the wise man, the author
ol (be proverbs and the builder
cf the temple, had hundreds ol
wives under the sanction of
God? ;
I wonder if Mr. Holhwell be
lieves in Ibe moral and i itel
leclual progress of mankind, or
does he believe' that we are no
lartuer advance! ihan the Jews
when they staried on iheir ex
odus from Egrvot. Can it be
possible - lliat lm is ignorant
that God has been educating
his people .in all ilirse years
from the fall, by progressive
steps into a higher plane ol
manhood? He must know that
God took' man as he was alter
iho fall sunk into the very
depthd ol degradation' and pro
ceeded to elevate him, not by
any forcing process ciimpellint
him to be virtuous against bis
will, and at once, but by moral
and religious education. This
process must ' necessarily be
slow because it U step by step
In his paiience with the learn-
s
ing ruce Gid endured ..and
sanctioned many things which
were only tolerated as 6teps in
progress, tio 'sliv ry and po
lygamy were only tolerated in
a very low moral ' condition ol
the world, when the world was
not educated up to the percep-
Hou of their infulnss. The
same evils are not tolerated by
i he same God in an age such as
i his when the. light ot. Chris,
tianity shines so brightly' upon
ibe world. ;". . '
But some one will say "what
you say is true, bu, then God
not only sanctioned but com
manded ibe use ol wine.'- I
. - J - (V

Ezekiel xx, 25: '-'wherefore 1

Drinking wine, then,' we con
lend, is opposed to the law of
love which governs Christian
conduct. Now, that law ol
love was never fully developed
until Christ came with his im
mortal sacrifice of brve, on the
cross. We can not expect
then that thoBe who were un
der bondage to tbe rigid law ol
Sinai could bave appreciated
and exemplified this; later, no
bler la of Christianity. Then,
indeed, I supposo Ibe circum
stances were lar different. The
man who look a glass ot intoxi
cating liquor iu tbe days ol
the patriarchs or even in the
H ay a 1 CJijfiat di.ilj,At do..llu
harm by his example which tbe
wine-sippers ol Hie present day
do. That example was not so
pernicious. Many generations
tf drunkards communicating
their appetites from one to the
other had not yet. fired ' the
blood of men with the rage
for strong drink, which in Ibm
age has become, not only a na
tional, but an universal mania.
Nr had the people of those
hiippy days .any ol thoae bran
dies, whiskies and ot her strong
er alcoholic drinks to which
wine i? only a stepping stone.
Again 'the climate, was differ
ent. Some climates almost
preclude their inhabitants from
drunkenness, while others are
extremely favorably to the
vice. Of the Innner character
istic is the East generally, on
account of its mild, equable
nature. Men could drink wine
in (he country and age of 1he
Patriarchs and ol Christ with
out the danger to themselves
or to others, which attends tbe
habit to-day in this country.
Let us consider lot a moment
Mr. Both well's assertion that
Christ and his disciples used
intoxicating liquors as a bev
erage, and that Christ himself
J
made wine at tbe marr aire of
Cana ol Gallilee. Now. to say
thejeast, we have no evidence
that Jesus, made or ubed or an
thorized the use of any intoxi
cating beverage whatever, and
in Mr. Bothweil's own words,
"For one I do. not propose to
accept hisppinion a truth in
the absepce of proof." The
man who asserts that Jesus
made intoxicating - liquor at
CanSj when it was in his power
to make a perfectly harmless
liquor, and yet of aoperior ex
cellence. must demonstrate his
ai.w. . aoAuKi-.J
tainty, or be must be con
sidered as i tendering the Sa
vior. ' Suppose Mr. Bothweli
bhotild make such a . charge

Ihe testimony of Pliny, Plu
tarch, Horace and Columelle
the niost highly esteemed
wine, that which was unmis
takably good, was the unintox
icating, unfermented juice ol
Ihe grape. He should have
known likewise (bat onfer
mented wines axe made for use
in the sacrament of the Lord's
supper even In our own State.'
As there was undonbtedly
good wine in use which was
notintoxicating.in the Savior's
day, why then assert with such
confidence that Ihe wine Ihe
Savior made was intoxicating?
when it was equally possible

Of the feast and yet be
perfectly harmless? I confess
that my mind revolt from the
picture with which wine apolo
gists represent the miracle ol
Cans. A company ol people
gat Ik red together to celebrate
a weddingexhausting all the
wine prepared lor the feast,
and having well drunk, still
clamoring for more Jesus
ministering to their depraved
appetites, by creating one bun-
dred and twenty gallons of in
toxicating liquors, when they
had alretdy drank as much as
they ought to have. Does the
picture honor our Savior? But
says Mr. Bothweli, "they called
our Savior a w.ne-bibb?r; tbey
called him a glutton also didn't
they?" Did that make it true?
Shall we believe Jesus was
both a glutton and a wine-bib
ber, on the testimony of the
Pharisees.? Then suppose 'for
an instant that Jesus did make
and drink alcoholic liquors, it
does not justify the making
and drinking of intoxicating
liquors in this conntry and age

Here's how it fs: I often went
up to Spriugtield on the last
train at night, did my business
in the evening and came home
orr- tho-- Arse morning train.
Well, one- night, I met an old
crony and we went to Music
Hall to the theater. When we
came out we met two girls ibat
Jim said were bis cousins, but
they werh't; it Was a fraufl, I
didn't know it, and when Jihi
offered his arm to one girl, 1 did
the same to the other. They
took us to their rooms, and I
saw how it was. 01 course I
couldn't get right out, so I
treated; then the girls freated;
then Jim treated; then the girh
treated; in fact, we were hav
ing a pretty good time, when
some fellows came in and be
gan to raise a row. In less
than no time the police were
in and had us. The next morn
ing I was hauled before tbe
court and fined $7 40. I didn't
care much because 1 have a
false name,aud I knew my wife
couldn't find out, but the next
morning I'll be eternally flunk
ed it the ; Republican didn't
have it all in, and my name
too."
"Did yonr wife see it?"
"I should say she did."
"Did she make a fins?"
"Fuss, Godfrey, Elishal Are
yoo married?"
"Yes."
"Then yon know how it is. I
have to go to Sprfngfield in the
