The New Zealand Evangelist


page 278


“You see the wine when it sparkles in the cup and are going to drink it. I tell you there is poison in it! and, therefore, I beg of you to throw it away. You answer, the wine is harmless in itself. I reply, perhaps it is so, but still if it be mixed with what is not harmless (alcohol) no one in his senses, if he knows it, will ever think of drinking it. If you add, it is not poison to me, though it may be to others; then I say, throw it away for thy brother's sake, lest thou embolden him to drink also!”
