Is it okay to drink coffee? A Mormon is telling me that it is a grave sin to drink coffee. Is wine a gift from God? Psalm 104:15 seems to suggest that it is.
There are no New Testament ceremonial laws. The Bible speaks of our Christian freedom in these areas: “Therefore do not let anyone judge you by what you eat or drink, or with regard to a religious festival, a New Moon celebration or a Sabbath day” (Colossians 2:16). It is not a sin to drink coffee. The apostle Paul made it clear what God’s kingdom is all about: “For the kingdom of God is not a matter of eating and drinking, but of righteousness, peace and joy in the Holy Spirit…” (Romans 14:17)
Psalm 104:15 does speak of wine as one of God’s gifts. It is the abuse of that gift (or any other gift, for that matter) that constitutes sin.
