Jill Dillard opens up about her decision to drink alcohol.

In an interview with PeopleJill and Derick opened up about their decision to drink alcohol. “We have boundaries,” Jill said. “In our faith, we believe like we’re not supposed to get drunk. So, with drinking, it’s not like we’re just like going crazy. It’s more socially here and there, or at home, for a date or something. Our kids are pretty young right now, but I think it’s good for them to see a healthy balance.”

“Growing up, the whole idea of drinking was not encouraged,” Jill says. “I know my parents would not be happy with it, and I know that my siblings, some more than others, would probably have an issue with it. Other ones would probably be like, ‘Whatever’s good for y’all, that’s fine. Live your life.’ So far nobody’s said anything to us about it.”

  1. Jesus attended a marriage festival( John 2), and turned six water jars filled to the brim into wine. This was the first time he had performed a miracle, his glory made manifest, and his disciples put their faith in him. The bible also says at 1 Timothy 3 the qualifications of a man reaching out for an office of overseer. In verse 3 it says he should not be a drunken brawler, it doesn’t say he shouldn’t drink at all. For women, in verse 11, it just says they should be moderate in their habits. Moderation is mentioned in other scriptures also, not complete abstinence. So if they are being responsible in their drinking, and looking after their children, there isn’t a scriptural reason not to have a mild drink or two.
