What was I supposed to do?

I believe in enjoying every moment of the short life I have on earth! Yesterday I found myself in a party and everyone else drinking is and as you know abusing alcohol. My faith prohibits the use of such products but I also have the responsibility of enjoying life just like the rest. So I refuse to drink top be on the side of faith. What would you have done when presented with similar options?

Faith is not 'believing without evidence', 'it is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see' Hebrews 11.1. This is the definition of faith in the Holy Spriptures. So we are not forbidden to drink we have the choice according to our faith. If I am sure it is wrong I should not drink so I think our friend acted in accordance with his beliefs and should be praised for this, because it is not an easy thing to do.

I would not drink if it was prohibited by my faith. Having faith should enhance our lives not curtail them or spoil them in any way. As we mature we realise that we should feel free to make our own choices and not be influenced by friends or anyone else. Maybe they drink to enjoy themselves, if you can enjoy yourself without drinking then why risk getting drunk or offending your beliefs.

If your faith prohibits you to drink the spirits,that is totally OK no one will force you to drink.And in my opinion,to have fun in a party no need to follow every thing that others do,you just need to be yourself,so in that party you can drink other beverage and you can enjoy the party as well.
