Ephesians 5:18 And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled with the Spirit;

In this verse, the Bible tells us clearly that Christians are to "be not drunk with wine". I have several questions to ask ourselves.

1. If this means it is OK to drink so long as we don't get intoxicated, how can we follow this command without actually breaking it?

2. Who would be more strict about drink? God or the government?

3. Since this verse specifically says "wine", Does that mean it is OK to be drunk with hard liquor or beer? Would this apply to marijuana, cocaine, and other drugs or not?

4. According to this verse, can a Christian be "filled with the Holy Spirit" while they are drunk?
