Is it a sin to drink beer and wine?

I enjoy drinking a six pack of beer or a bottle of wine every night after work.When does it become a sin or is it a sin to enjoy these beverages every night?


Having a beer or two or a glass of wine each night is fine and certainly no sin. Having a whole bottle of wine each night or a whole six pack for most people would be a drinking problem. The very fact that you are asking, sounds like you are an alcoholic and are trying to justify a drinking habit. Be honest with yourself. You are in my prayers.
