Repentance or Reclassification

When is sin not sin? When it can be reclassified under another heading? The Scriptures clearly teach that abuse of alcohol is a sin and labels it as drunkenness. Paul lists this sin in I Corinthians 6:10 as evidence of an unregenerate heart and accordingly states that drunkards "will not inherit the kingdom of God." Since humanistic psychology is built on the evolutionary theory of the origin of man, it can not stand the thought of man as created in the image of God nor allow that our problems stem from 'a willful rebellion against the God who is there and has spoken in His Word. How does it cope with this problem of reality. RECLASSIFICATION.
