C3 Some verses
D1 Proverbs 20:1 NLT Wine produces mockers; alcohol leads to brawls. Those led astray by drink cannot be wise.
D2 Changes perceptions and thus people’s action: Proverbs 23:29-35 NLT Who has anguish? Who has sorrow? Who is always fighting? Who is always complaining? Who has unnecessary bruises? Who has bloodshot eyes? It is the one who spends long hours in the taverns, trying out new drinks. Don't gaze at the wine, seeing how red it is, how it sparkles in the cup, how smoothly it goes down. For in the end it bites like a poisonous snake; it stings like a viper. You will see hallucinations, and you will say crazy things. You will stagger like a sailor tossed at sea, clinging to a swaying mast. And you will say, "They hit me, but I didn't feel it. I didn't even know it when they beat me up. When will I wake up so I can look for another drink?"
D3 Because one’s sense of judgment is altered: Proverbs 31:4 NLT It is not for kings, O Lemuel, to guzzle wine. Rulers should not crave alcohol.

D4 Proverbs 30:5 NLT Every word of God proves true. He is a shield to all who come to him for protection.
B6 Religion

C2 Regarding our prayers and pious statements: Proverbs 12:22 NLT The LORD detests lying lips, but he delights in those who tell the truth.
