SAVANNAH, GEORGIA - Independent Baptist Sebastian Glover was reading 1 Thessalonians 5, and came to the verse where it commands Christians to "Abstain from all appearance of evil." After reading the text, Sebastian felt convicted. His wife came in and asked him what was bothering him?
"I have sinned", Sebastian said. "When we ate at Chilis tonight, I ordered an IBC Root beer. While I was enjoying it, I thought I saw someone look at me funny. I knew it was because they thought I was drinking alcohol and we know as Baptists that drinking alcohol is sinful."
He went on to say, "The scripture is crystal clear, we are to abstain from all appearance of evil. That includes drinking delicious root beer out of a bottle, because it looks like a beer bottle."
After praying, Sebastian got back up, went into his refrigerator, and poured out all of his IBC Root beers into the sink and smashed every last bottle. "Never again, O Lord, never again." He vowed not to partake of anything contained in glass bottles that could be mistaken for a beer bottle.
After destroying the bottles, Sebastian said, "Quick, Game of Thrones is coming on any minute!"
