William Branham said, ''"Cussing, swearing, drinking, that's not sin; that's the attributes of sin."'' <ref>March 26, 1953, William Branham </ref>  However, Jesus was a king and a priest, and he drank and created wine.  Jesus was also the sinless, spotless lamb of God.  If drinking is a sin, then Jesus was not a perfect sacrifice. So William Branham was wrong and drinking is not sin or an attribute of sin. Drinking just means you are drinking, just like driving means you are driving.  It is the purpose of what you are doing that defines your actions.
