About this Website

This web site is intended for the glory of God, by instructing individual Christians, congregations, and church officers about the need to use real wine, the fermented juice of grapes, in the sacrament of the Lord’s Supper. 


Much of this website reproduces some parts of a report written for the Midwest Presbytery of the Reformed Presbyterian Church of North America in 2006. 


The author of this website is Jeff Yelton. Jeff graduated from Covenant Theological Seminary in St. Louis with a Master of Divinity degree in 1988. He was the pastor of several reformed and Presbyterian churches, most recently the Reformed Presbyterian Church (RPCNA) in Clarinda, Iowa. He is currently the chaplain of Osawatomie State Hospital in Osawatomie, Kansas. His ministerial credentials are in the Midwest Presbytery of the Reformed Church of North America. 


If anyone notices any errors of either fact or logic in this website, the author sincerely desires to be corrected. He may be contacted by using the contact form below.


This website was first published on September 19, 2017, but has been revised many times since then. The last major revision was made on February 24, 2019, and consisted of the addition of a new page about the duty of individual Christians when confronted with unfermented grape juice in the Lord's Supper. A new page about the temperance movements and an Epilogue were added in May 2018.
