As far as we’re aware it’s not a sin to pound back a few brews while reading the good word of the lord. And even if it is The Chuggernauts’ don’t exactly cater to a sin-free lifestyle. So we decided to come up with a Reading The Bible Drinking Game to make that Sunday worship a bit more exciting.
How It Works
Basically just sit down with a bible and a few close friends and then everyone takes turns reading paragraphs from their favorite parable and drinking whenever certain things come up. We suggest playing this game with red wine or any other Holy Spirit.
Ecclesiastes 9:7 —
“Go, eat your bread with joy, and drink your wine with a merry heart, for God has already approved what you do.”
Reading The Bible Drinking Game Rules
Take a sip of your drink if…
- Somebody or multiple people die. Drink twice if they were killed by God. Drink three times if they were killed by Satan.
- Jesus is specifically mentioned (or any other name for the J-Man)
- A clear metaphor is used . Drink twice if you have no idea what that metaphor implies.
- The words “Ye” or “thou” are used
- A direct threat is made for someone who sins. Drink twice if you have personally done that sin.
- Some sort of Hebrew festival or holiday is mentioned
- There’s a poorly structured sentence with clear abuse of commas or semi-colons
Bonus Rule: If a prayer appears in the bible all players cheers and take a sip. Then everyone joins hands while reciting the prayer. If you’re unsure what exactly qualifies as a prayer here’s a list of all 650 prayers that appear in the bible.
Isaiah 5:22 —
Woe to those who are heroes in drinking wine And valiant men in mixing strong drink,
This reading-the-bible drinking game can range from fairly tame to an pretty devastating depending on which chapter or parable you choose to take-on. That first rule tends to come up a lot as well. For the arbiter of all things Holy the lord sure does murder a lot of people.
