Alcohol as a Remover

ALCOHOL WILL REMOVE stains from clothes. But stains from clothes are not the only things alcohol will remove.

  • Alcohol will remove the clothes as well. (Strange as it may seem, alcohol will do this not only for the man who drinks it, but also for his wife and children.)

  • Alcohol will remove smiles from the faces of wives and mothers. Or husbands and fathers. It will remove laughter from the lips of innocent children.
  • Alcohol will remove heat from the home, furniture from its rooms, and food from its table.
  • It will remove fine homes and leave hovels.
  • It will remove plenty and leave poverty.
  • It will remove fame and leave shame.
  • It will remove honor and leave humiliation.

Alcohol not only removes stains; it creates them.

  • Alcohol quickly stains a reputation. Worse, it gradually stains and deforms a character. It mars the potential of any man or woman who indulges. And it ultimately ruins the person caught in its deceptive snare.
  • Alcohol can mark a man for life with its cursed stain. And it can remove from one’s experience everything, great or small, that makes life worthwhile.

But that is not the worst that can happen to man. The real tragedy is that…

  • Alcohol will bar or remove a man’s name from the Book of Life.
  • It will remove from his heart all hope of Heaven.
  • It will remove from the realm of possibility fellowship with God Himself, both now and in the eternal future.

God says, “Be not deceived: neither fornicators … nor thieves … nor drunkards … shall inherit the kingdom of God” (1 Corinthians 6:9, 10).

There is an antidote, however, for this poison—for this remover of all that is good. This antidote is faith in Jesus Christ. The most hopeless alcoholic may trust in Him for deliverance and salvation. Not only will Christ for¬give, but He also will cleanse the human heart from all unrighteousness.


“Wine is a mocker, strong drink is raging: and whosoever is deceived thereby is not wise” (Proverbs 20:1).

“Who hath woe? who hath sorrow? who hath contentions? who hath babbling? who hath wounds without cause? who hath redness of eyes? They that tarry long at the wine; they that go to seek mixed wine. Look not thou upon the wine when it is red, when it giveth his colour in the cup, when it moveth itself aright. At the last it biteth like a serpent, and stingeth like an adder. Thine eyes shall behold strange women, and thine heart shall utter perverse things…. They have stricken me, shalt thou say, and I was not sick; they have beaten me, and I felt it not: when shall I awake? I will seek it yet again” (Proverbs 23:29-33, 35).


“The blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness” (1 John 1:7, 9).

Jesus says, “If any man thirst, let him come unto me, and drink” (John 7:37).

  1. Hello , there is a christian alternative to AA .It is good that you are seeking help but with NA, or SA, or AA, they look to their “higher” power. I’m currently involved with a program called RU international. It means Reformers unanimous, We are a faith based recovery program that are in over 39 countries. We meet every Friday night from 7-9:30 pm. We believe that Jesus Christ ( John 8:32 ) He is the ONLY way ..
    Its says in John 8:32 That we shall know the truth and the truth Jesus He makes us free.
    We teach how to have a personal intimate relationship with Our creator Our Father God. Its not just the program , but its how Jesus uses this program and teaches us to reach out to others who are learning to crucify our flesh .We are already new creations but are flesh must be dealt with and taken authority through surrendering to Jesus Christ and allowing Him and His Holy ghost empowering spirit to have His way and ” when I cannot and I am weak , It is only Jesus that through His strength at work in and through and for me that i am able to withstand and allow Him to have my life. To unashamedly talk to others about my struggles but also the triumphs that I know wasn’t me , So i can take no credit for my deliverance. All I can offer for God for all He has done is empty hands and a broken life that God gracefully uses to help others to know that failures , struggles and all, God still loves you and sees you as beautiful , not the shattered useless but a trophy of Gods grace. Doing what only He can .I hope you would look into the program and find a chapter near you .plz look it up if you need transportation to and from they can help also .God bless you and have a beautiful day .Heres more info.
