      I used to go to a fundamentalist church, so I dig
      this kind of stuff:<br><br>"The contents of the cup
      were wine. This is known to have been �the juice of
      the grape,� not in its original state as freshly
      expressed, but as prepared in the form of wine for permanent
      use among the Jews. �Wine,� according to the
      absolutely unanimous, unexceptional testimony of every
      scholar and missionary, is in its essence �fermented
      grape juice.� Nothing else is wine. The us of �wine� is
      precisely what is commanded by Christ in his example and
      his authoritative institution of his holy ordinance.
      Whosever puts away true and real wine, or fermented grape
      juice, on moral grounds, from the Lord�s Supper, sets
      himself up as more moral than the Son of God who reigns
      over his conscience, and than the Saviour of souls who
      redeemed him. There has been absolutely universal consent
      on this subject in the Christian Church until modern
      times, when the practice has been opposed, not upon
      change of evidence, but solely on prudential
      considerations." (Archibald Alexander Hodge. Popular Lectures on
      Theological Themes, 1887. Pg. 400)<br><br>---<br><br>gmw.
