“3 But I am afraid that as the serpent deceived Eve by his cunning, your thoughts will be led astray from a sincere and pure devotion to Christ.
4 For if someone comes and proclaims another Jesus than the one we proclaimed, or if you receive a different spirit from the one you received, or if you accept a different gospel from the one you accepted, you put up with it readily enough.”
(2 Corinthians 11:3-4)
Re: “How did Jesus celebrate? With Sam Chan.” The event description says: “Did you know Jesus was accused of partying too hard?” The same event description is repeated from an earlier message of Sam Chan (4 Feb. 2018). I quote his very deceiving and shameful statements about another Jesus (supposedly) getting people drunk (and very drunk):
…going on for days and days and days. The alcohol has run out. The guests are drunk, what would you and I do? We would say, okay, you guys have had enough, no more and we’re out of alcohol anyway. Jesus instead turns water into wine. Not just any wine, but good wine. And not just good wine, but lots of good wine. If Jesus was around today, He would fail the responsible serving of alcohol license; it would be revoked from Him. But He’s getting people who’ve already had way too much to drink more wine, more good wine, and lots of more good wine. Why would Jesus do this? Because … our deepest desires and needs are fulfilled by food and drink… And in the same way our deepest desires are fulfilled by Jesus.
But unlike Sam Chan, I say food and drink can never fulfill our deepest desires and needs – only Christ can truly do that! All the glory is Christ’s.
Say, do you believe Sam Chan is speaking the truth about how Jesus Christ affects the rest of our lives? It is not enough for him to admit Jesus “probably” did not get drunk Himself.
Paul proclaims the truth:
“33 Do not be deceived: “Bad company ruins good morals.”
34 Wake up from your drunken stupor, as is right, and do not go on sinning. For some have no knowledge of God. I say this to your shame.”
(1 Corinthians 15:33-34)
Likewise Peter proclaims the true Christ, the true gospel, the true Holy Spirit:
“1 Since therefore Christ suffered in the flesh, arm yourselves with the same way of thinking, for whoever has suffered in the flesh has ceased from sin,
2 so as to live for the rest of the time in the flesh no longer for human passions but for the will of God.
3 For the time that is past suffices for doing what the Gentiles want to do, living in sensuality, passions, drunkenness, orgies, drinking parties, and lawless idolatry.
4 With respect to this they are surprised when you do not join them in the same flood of debauchery, and they malign you;
5 but they will give account to him who is ready to judge the living and the dead.
6 For this is why the gospel was preached even to those who are dead, that though judged in the flesh the way people are, they might live in the spirit the way God does.
7 The end of all things is at hand; therefore be self-controlled and sober-minded for the sake of your prayers.”
(1 Peter 4:1-7)
“44 Therefore you also must be ready, for the Son of Man is coming at an hour you do not expect.
45 “Who then is the faithful and wise servant, whom his master has set over his household, to give them their food at the proper time? 46 Blessed is that servant whom his master will find so doing when he comes. 47 Truly, I say to you, he will set him over all his possessions. 48 But if that wicked servant says to himself, ‘My master is delayed,’ 49 and begins to beat his fellow servants and eats and drinks with drunkards, 50 the master of that servant will come on a day when he does not expect him and at an hour he does not know 51 and will cut him in pieces and put him with the hypocrites. In that place there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.”
All these passages show the true Jesus would never ever get anybody drunk at all.
His miracle at Cana is for a sign to manifest His glory – and is never intended to encourage anybody’s “drunkenness, orgies, and drinking parties”!
