Adventist Teaching: Yes
Biblical Teaching: No
The Adventist Church forbids any sort of alcoholic consumption, regardless of how much. This is due to their Message of Health Reform which is a result of a supposed vision that was given to Ellen White. This message is a part of their Third Angel’s gospel message and must be heeded in order to be fitted for translation into the New Heaven and Earth.
But the Bible nowhere states that consuming any alcohol whatsoever is sinful. What is forbidden is drunkenness (Ephesians 5:18, Romans 13:13, 1 Corinthians 6:10). In fact, some verses you will never hear the Adventist Church quote are those such as Ecclesiastes 9:7 and Psalm 104:14-15 that speak positively about wine and to “drink it with a merry heart.”
Furthermore, in John 2, Jesus’s first miracle at the Wedding in Cana involved alcoholic wine, despite the Adventist Church and Ellen White stating the contrary. The Greek word translated “wine” in this passage is oinos, which was the common Greek word for fermented wine. Oinos is also what is used in Ephesians 5:18 where Paul says to not be drunk on it.
