For you Bible scholars: isn't the title of this thread a passage from somewhere in the Bible? So I friend of mine claims, anyway. Anybody know where?

Can't say I've heard that one before. But I will leave it up to the True Bible Scholars to answer that one.

I haven't come across it. That's not to say it isn't there though. Get your friend to give the reference book/chapter/verse, or at least the book. Otherwise he's talking out his...

Well, kind of, but not exactly in those words, so far as I can remember. There are some scriptures condemning the drinking of too much wine, but most scriptures about wine approve of us drinking it!
Proverbs 31:6,7 may be the one you have in mind, though I am not sure. I have a vague recollection of the wording you quote, but I can't find it. Yorick might be able to recall it!

"Give intoxicating liquour, you people, to the one about to perish, and wine to those who are bitter of soul. Let one drink and forget one's poverty, and let one remember one's own troubles no more."

And Ecclesiastes 9 as a whole points out that since we are all going to die anyway we may as well enjoy ourselves and wine is one of the ways to do so. But it does go on to point out a moral lesson!

Errrrr.... I was going to politely deny that, but yeah, I suppose I am in here, lol! The other knowledgeable bible scholars are male!

Sheesh! I bet all the other female bible readers are going to take me down a peg or two, now, lol!

Dio, I've heard that too it may be from the Catholic or one of the Orthodox Bibles, I do not recall it from the Protestant Bible
