My wife watches a lot of HGTV. Often these programs display lavish homes or discuss transforming ordinary homes. From exciting “kitchen-crashes” to extreme home-improvements, these shows frequently include adding a wine fridge for wine storage.
Wine seems to be an accepted part of our contemporary culture and welcomed into many homes—even Christian homes. While the Bible does not prohibit drinking wine, it does condemn drunkenness as a sin.* Of course, drunkenness would never be a problem, if alcohol were never imbibed, in the first place.
