Controversial social media personality and former Senior Special Assistant on Social Media to President Goodluck Jonathan, Reno Omokri has said that drinking alcoholic beverages is not a sin.
Omokri who is also a Pastor, stated this on his social media handle on Thursday.
In his series of tweets, Omokri said “Don’t let any church or pastor put a burden on you that God has not put. Drinking alcohol is NOT a sin. Getting drunk is a sin. The only Godly reason for divorce is adultery. But SEPARATION from an abusive spouse is NOT a sin. PHARISEES still exist”
“Jesus drank wine, there is nothing like non-alcoholic wine. If it does not have alcohol, it is not wine. It is grape juice’, these were the words of Reno Omokri as he explained that drinking alchohol is not ‘ungodly”
He went on to explain that, ‘I am a follower of Christ and I don’t drink. It is a personal decision. However, drinking alcohol is NOT a sin, nor is it unGodly’.
“Not only did Jesus drink wine, He also turned water to wine, ALCOHOLIC WINE, and in Matthew 26:29, He told us we would drink wine in God’s Kingdom, also known as HEAVEN”
“Furthermore, the ceremonial consumption of wine is part of Jewish religious rites. So don’t let any Pentecostal or evangelical church or pastor put a burden on you that God has not put. DRINK, but don’t get DRUNK”
