Scholars argue whether the "yayin" of the bible even means fermented wine. I look forward to your sharing your thoughts on this matter. I don't yet know of a proscription in the bible of the use of medicines to treat painful and debilitating mental illnesses. I imagine this has been an issue for talmudic discussion. I haven't looked into it, though.

Scott,
You wrote,[...I am..wondering...your thoughts...use ..for mental illness...].
The historical record shows for thousands of yearrs there were people that wanted to give people chemicals to treat evrything. They were called medicine men, witch doctors, etc.
The bible here teaches many things about chemicals that have mind-altering properties as to if or if not one is to go to those that supply them to others or to use them. Alcohol is a powerful chemical and addictive and harmful to the body and mind.
If you could post here a bible verse that you think means that that God wants people to drink alcohol, then I could respond to that.
Lou
