I was introduced to another new Baptist controversy today: “Unfermented Bible Wines”. I’ve always taken it as given that the Eucharist used normal wine by default, and that the churches I’ve been attending at used grape juice as a mere concession to those who had to abstain from alchohol. It’s only now that I’ve become aware of the
silliness seriousness of the Grape Juice Debate. The prevailing prohibitionist hermeneutic seems to be: if wine is called “bad” in the bible, it’s wine, otherwise it’s grape juice. Ha.
Anyway, I started Googling for research, and guess whose page I came across… ;) (Update: Okay, it’s not that Rich Clark.)
