Intro

This blog gains its name from the book Steele's Answers published in 1912. It began as an effort to blog through that book, posting each of the Questions and Answers in the book in the order in which they appeared. I began the project on Dec. 10, 2011. I completed it on July 11, 2015. Along the way, I began to also post snippets from Dr. Steele's other writings — and from some other holiness writers of his times. I still do that every once in a while.

The Danger of Soft Drinks

QUESTION: Is it proper for Christians to indulge in soft drinks, such as "pop, ginger ale," and root beer?

ANSWER:  While these drinks may not be intoxicating, they may easily lead the drinker, and others through his example, to form a taste for the so-called hard liquors. If you would avoid being burned by the devil's fire, don't play with his matches and kindling wood.
