I totally disagree with you because if you read John 2:10 you will this "And he said to him, "Every man at the beginning sets out the good wine, and when the guests have well drunk, then the inferior. You have kept the good wine until now!"So if the wine was good as non-alcoholic than how did they get drunk??????
I'm not going to be able to explain this to you because your thinking like an Egyptian Christian not like a pure Christian.Can you perhaps advise why our ancestors like St. Macarious drank wine and then systematise that into your argument. Why it was okay then but not now.
They said of Macarius that if he was asked to eat among the brothers, he made a rule for himself that if wine was offered, he would drink it for the brothers sake: and then, for one cup of wine he would go without water for a whole day. Some brothers wanted to refresh him and gave him some wine. He took it with joy, so as later to punish himself. But his disciple, knowing the reason said to the brothers, 'For God's sake, I beg you, do not give him any wine. In the cell afterwards he pays for it with torment.' When the brothers heard this, they gave him no more wine.
