The following article is a warning that Jerry Jr. should be on suicide watch. The indicators are there.
‘Less than a week after resigning as president of Liberty University, Jerry Falwell Jr. was injured in a fall after drinking, according to 911 transcripts and audio obtained by the Huffington Post.
The Sept. 17 Huffington Post report said Falwell’s wife, Becki Falwell, called 911 on August 30 to report her husband had fallen down the stairs and was bleeding. According to the report, Becki Falwell told the dispatcher her husband had been drinking but would not say if he had been “drinking heavily.”
“I’m not going to answer that question,” she reportedly said.
According to the Huffington Post, Jerry Falwell Jr. refused to let his wife take him to the hospital, but a first responder who went to the Falwells’ home found he had cuts on his face and slurred speech. The cuts were reportedly from a trash can that had empty alcohol containers in it.
The Wall Street Journal reported last week that Liberty officials had heard complaints about Jerry Falwell Jr. coming to campus while drunk. Falwell denied those claims.
Faculty and students at Liberty, one of the country’s largest Christian universities, are barred from drinking. Staff are allowed to drink but could be fired if they show up to work under the influence.
“Reporting to work under the influence of any illegal substance or alcohol will be subject to discipline, up to and including termination,” states the school’s employee handbook.’https://julieroys.com/falwell-injured-fall-drinking/?mc_cid=1c0806805a&mc_eid=b13d34ad49
There is a BIG problem here. Well, in fact there are many problems but one problem is that there is a double standard in that the students are to be total abstainers of alcohol BUT staff are not!? This just may be the way contemporary Christianity works but it’s not God’s way. When professing Christians begin to argue for the ‘right’ to drink alcohol it is obvious there are other ‘legalistic’ prohibitions they will desire sanctioned. There is no limit to the list. There’s the contemporary religious ‘dialogues’ concerning gender fluidity, alcohol use, abortion, sodomy, same-sex marriage, etc. etc. and the list goes on. Once the flood gate is opened it is very hard to close. If Jerry Sr. was alive today he just might quote Proverbs 23:19 Hear thou, my son, and be wise, and guide thine heart in the way. 20 Be not among winebibbers; among riotous eaters of flesh: 21 For the drunkard and the glutton shall come to poverty: and drowsiness shall clothe a man with rags. 29 Who hath woe? who hath sorrow? who hath contentions? who hath babbling? who hath wounds without cause? who hath redness of eyes? 30 They that tarry long at the wine; they that go to seek mixed wine. 31 Look not thou upon the wine when it is red, when it giveth his colour in the cup, when it moveth itself aright. 32 At the last it biteth like a serpent, and stingeth like an adder. 33 Thine eyes shall behold strange women, and thine heart shall utter perverse things. 34 Yea, thou shalt be as he that lieth down in the midst of the sea, or as he that lieth upon the top of a mast. 35 They have stricken me, shalt thou say, and I was not sick; they have beaten me, and I felt it not: when shall I awake? I will seek it yet again.
