One must repent to beat drunkenness

In response to the article on binge drinking a couple of weeks ago, I agree with Barry Busby's comment: We are seeing way too many people die.

The answer, however, is not more money into police patrols or placing taxis outside of bars to carry intoxicated patrons home. I believe that as long as the drunkenness continues, so will the drunken deaths. Three thousand years ago, the Bible warns against drunkenness and its consequences in Proverbs 23:29-35. The solution is a transformation from the inside out - a new heart that no longer desires drunkenness. That change occurs when a person repents (Luke 13:3) and turns to Christ alone in faith for salvation (Ephesians 2:8-9). When this decision is genuine, alcoholic tendencies will diminish and cease, as the new power of the Holy Spirit transforms their life

Until then, I believe we can expect more of the same, and maybe more.
