Christians and Alcohol: Drinking Rates Among Age Groups

Posted by

Can Christians drink alcohol? For many Christians it depends on their interpretation of the Bible. Some denominations frown upon drinking, while others see no issue with it. Many Christians will say it’s not the act of drinking that is wrong – it is the act of getting drunk or drinking too much.
So, how many Christians drink? If you look at singles who are part of Christian dating service, around 65% either abstain from drinking alcohol or rarely drink. The interesting part of this data is that the 65% mark seems to hold true regardless of the age group. Some may think that Christian young adults may be getting away from things like abstaining from alcohol, but that does not seem to be the case. The graph below displays the percentage of Christians who either do not drink or rarely drink, broken down by age group.

I don't drink and see no need for you to drink in order to have a nice time. First of all it's too expensive and secondly, most people that drink don't know when to stop and they are only doing it to be a part of the crowd.
