Tackling the topics most Christians are too scared to talk about
IMPRISONED BY ALCOHOL,
FREED BY THE SPIRIT
Episode 8 of the Church Unboxed Podcast is available to stream now
In this episode of Church Unboxed I’m joined by Anj Khuttan, a lawyer and recovered alcoholic who works with a ministry of women through her weekly bible study which helps other recovered alcoholics seeking to progress the kingdom of God
There is the argument that ‘Jesus turned water into wine, not grape juice, so drinking alcohol is not a sin’. That is definitely true. Personally, I believe doing anything in excess is where we cross over into sin. For drinking, it becomes alcohol use disorder or alcoholism, for food it becomes gluttony, for talking it becomes gossip and so on. Nonetheless, alcoholism is a real struggle for many - even for those who on the outside, make it look like fun! I believe this is why we need to explore ways the church can support not only Christians but our wider community with this problem.
What say ye, should Christians drink alcohol? Catch the episode, join the conversation on the Facebook Group and let us know what you think.
THE CONVERSATIONS WE'RE UNCOVERING
Church Unboxed is not your average faith-based Podcast. It's not for church-goers who are easily offended. It's not a shallow synopsis of contemporary culture. We're uncovering the issues that have been swept under the rug and listening to people how have felt marginally and sometimes even ignored.
Chruch Unboxed tackles the topics that Christians are too scared to talk about.
We are looking for guests to share their experiences over a 30-minute audio interview with Sarah for Series 2. The Podcast is being produced in partnership with Andy Baker & Homegrown Worship. Collectively, the team behind Church Unboxed has produced media content for The BBC, GOD TV, TBN, UCB & Premier Christian Radio.
