Today, Americans are more likely to be heavy drinkers and binge drinkers than in recent years due in large part to rising rates of drinking among women, according to a new analysis of county-level drinking patterns in the United States.
Heavy drinking among Americans has increased sharply, up 17.2%. Nationwide, women showed a much faster escalation in binge drinking than men, with rates rising 17.5%; men, on the other hand, saw rates of binge drinking increase 4.9%.
Therefore do not be foolish, but understand what the Lord’s will is. Do not get drunk on wine, which leads to reckless indiscretion. Instead, be filled with the Spirit. Speak to one another with psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs. Sing and make music in your hearts to the Lord.
This is the end of the sinner. Repent and ask Jesus to fill you with his love. Turn from your wickedness and live holy and God will save your soul from hell. Do it now.
