I am banned from youtube, so... I grew up with an alcoholic, in fact, my Dad died of drug overdose 2 years ago in his 60s. I don't drink myself, and never have been drunk, but comparing my experiences growing up, dealing with drunk people every day...there's no way in heck the drunk people I was around could ever talk so clearly about medical supplies and procedures (which Bear was talking about late into the stream last night). It is not a sin to drink alcohol, it is not a sin to get occasionally drunk, Bear was not out of line and was not drunk. Some Christians make up some rules that aren't biblical, it isn't a sin to drink and it isn't a sin to smoke. Cigars smell good, and keep away bugs. No one is perfect. No one is the same, and God did not make us so. There are types of people, whether we like it or not. Bear relates to people like him, and they need each other. For example: someone like Daily Connoisseur couldn't reach many in Bear's audience , and same with him and most of her audience (she's a secret prepper in California who talks about feminine things). Alcohol does have beneficial properties, whether many teetotalers want to admit it or not. In a shtf scenario, if one of your loved ones gets hurt (really hurt), I'd rather them get blasted than let them suffer their pain. People who have never experienced much pain can be real stinkers about judging others who are in pain. The Bible even says leave the sick and broken hearted to their drink. It's like, but probably safer, opioid pain killers the doctor would give. Also, cleaning wounds, and making herbal medicine. Trading. Also, trading, yea, I'd trade with an alcoholic. Though my dad put his family through heck, witnessing him try to withdrawal....cruelty. Flat out cruelty. Wine has great health benefits for the heart, nerves, and fat production. My Grandma's husband (not my Pap, they married in their 80s), he was given whiskey and sugar water as a baby because he was born premature, they swear it saved him, he is 92 and healthy. Women in Europe and many countries even drink moderately safely in pregnancy, wine daily! There'll be a whole heck of a lot of things many Christians will have to wake up to in shtf. Women have hairy legs and men grow beards, the horror! People don't naturally smell like flowers. Fermentation was made by God, Jesus drank and gave drunk people drink.
