Article of Faith.

"Thou shalt drink much wine."

Scripture substantiation

"Give strong drink unto him that is ready to perish,
and wine unto those that be of heavy hearts.
Let him drink, and forget his poverty,
and remember his misery no more"
(Proverbs 31:6,7 KJV)

"Drink no longer water,
but use a little wine for thy stomach's sake
and thine often infirmities."
(1 Timothy 5:23 KJV)

"Whatsoever thy hand findeth to do,
do it with thy might; ..."
(Ecclesiastes 9:10 KJV)

"Thou shalt drink much wine."

You say.
Yes it is.

However it is no more absurd than several of the 
most popular doctrines in Christendom.

At least one extremely popular doctrine cannot be found
in the Scriptures at all.  
That is,
unless you pull the Scriptures you want out of context,
then put them in the order you want.  And like several of
the other doctrines, totally ignore those Scriptures that do not suit you.

Are the things I believe about God and the Scriptures
something that mankind has concocted and taught me?

something that I believe because I have found it 
taught in the Scriptures -ALL OF THE SCRIPTURES?
