You're correct, the question wasn't related to the pros and cons of wine (alcohol), but since you brought it up...This debate mainly falls between those who want to drink alcohol and those who don't and in most cases goes nowhere. Sometimes an unbiased source is required. That source is “statistics”
Alcohol claims over 100,000 lives each year
(that's about 25 times greater than all other deaths related to mind altering drugs combined)
The economic cost is about 120 billion dollars (each year) through: reduced work production, health care costs and premature deaths
65 million Americans (about 1 in 4) are affected by alcohol through: violence, crime, divorce, retarded children, sickness, death and dependency.
These statistics were derived from the 1990's and are more than likely higher today and they only include the United States. The world's statistics (on this issue) must be staggering.....
Update: Every 10 seconds a death occurs that is related to alcohol (2013)
There is more, especially relating to your support verse Psalms 104:15, but I'll leave that for another time.
Secondly, most reputable historians and scholars agree that Luke builds his gospel on the platform of historical reliability. His emphasis on chronological and historical accuracy makes this book the most comprehensive of all the gospels. Luke is also credited (by many) with writing Acts, which is also arranged mostly in a chronological order. This is contrary to the fourth gospel, where the author is not named and there is internal biblical evidence that the apostle John is not the author. We also need to consider the time period most believe the fourth gospel and Revelation were written. This time period was extremely cruel to professing Christians and to believe that one of the original apostles was allowed to live is questionable. The story of the apostles James and John recorded in Matthew 20 and Mark 10 where it is requested that they sit on the right and left of Jesus in his Kingdom is telling! Jesus tells them that they will drink the same cup he will (Matt. 20:23 & Mk. 10: 39). This cup was martyrdom (Matt. 26:39, 42, Lk. 22:42 and John 18:11).
