The problem is that too many things which are not good for you are fun! Or tasty, or enjoyable. I think it's really unfair sometimes! It's just that they seem to have consequences which are not so pleasant sometimes.

Even if people view many things differently, the core Gospel principles (LOVE; belief in the unseen but hoped; self-reflective change; symbolic cleansing; striving to recognize the will of the divine; never giving up) are universal.

Will Rogers is just about right, although there are a number of enjoyable things which don't fall into those categories of course... like cuddling your son or daughter, seeing a beautiful landscape or hearing the best kinds of music and so on... but Will is still not far off it. Too much sin is enjoyable... not the murdering or fighting kind of sin (unless you're really twisted), but substance abuse (before the consequences), fornication (and no doubt adultery), and joy riding must all count.

Dare I mention Mormon tea? I know, it was sometimes called "Whorehouse" tea, being used against certain personal diseases. I think it has been banded by the FDA, for sports and dietary uses. I should have read the Wikipedia offering before commenting...

Wine is against the word of wisdom and it come from the same plant as grape juice yet grape juice is ok and good for you and wine... well... you know...

I love green tea and drink a ton of it. I buy it special and not the junk at the store. Mine is naturally caffeine free. Black Tea is the fermented form of black tea. During the time that the WoW was written, hot drinks referred to black tea. I have done a lot of study into this topic and have come to the conclusion through certain sources that the church has no official opinion on Green Tea and leaves it up to the members to decide. Green Tea good for you... Black Tea bad for you.... Grape Juice good for you... Wine.... :lol:

Reading the WoW literally wine made by Mormons is okay...
