Are you looking for a good place to store your whiskey? No worries. Loma Linda University has got you covered. For only $69.98 Loma Linda University (LLU) will sell you a custom, beautiful, deep-etched crystal whiskey decanter to store your favorite whiskey. These whiskey decanters even come complete with the Loma Linda University name and logo engraved on every bottle. 
Maybe you are not into whisky. Maybe your choice of alcohol is red wine. That’s not a problem either. Loma Linda University still has you covered. For only $65.95 you can order your “Wine Decanter” complete with the LLU name and logo on every bottle.  LLU says that these are good for anyone who has a “personal wine cellar.”
Maybe you’re a heavier drinker and you enjoy the 40% to 90% proof alcohol. No worries. LLU still has your back if you drink Spirits such as vodka, gin, tequila or rum. For $99.98 you can order your “Spirits Decanter” complete with the LLU name and logo on every bottle.  $100 for this bottle is a bit pricey, but since you’ll be brain dead after a night of drinking, you won’t have time to think about it.
Or maybe you are looking for something more sophisticated to store your drink. Once again, LLU has the perfect drinking container for all your high-class social events. For just $79.98 you can order a specialty textured drinking bottle that was made in “Italy.”  Amazing! Perhaps it was handcrafted in Rome by the Pope himself and especially prepared for Seventh-day Adventists. The Loma Linda University Campus Store says on its website that this particular drinking container is perfect for “parties and entertaining.” What kind of party? Obviously a drinking party!
All of these custom LLU drinking decanters are available online on the university’s official “campus store.” These are not called medicine bottles. There are no suggestions to use these bottles to store your natural remedy drinks. No explanation or clarification is given. These custom crystal bottles are being sold and marketed as “WHISKEY, WINE and SPIRITS” decanters.
What is a decanter? Well, according to the alcohol industry, storing your favorite alcoholic beverage in a decanter allows it to breathe. It’s supposed to “open up” the “flavors and aromas.” 
How wonderful. We wouldn’t want our church members to get drunk without at least “savoring” their drink. But isn’t Loma Linda University an alcohol-free Seventh-day Adventist institution? Well, they’re supposed to be. On the LLU “Values and Lifestyle” website page we read:
“The University expects students to exclude alcohol, tobacco products, cannabinoids, and illegal drugs from their lives while enrolled.” 
Then the LLU’s Student Handbook states the following on page 49:
“As stated in its motto, ‘To make man whole,’ Loma Linda University is committed to providing a learning environment conducive to the fullest possible human development. The University holds that a lifestyle that is free of alcohol, tobacco, marijuana, and recreational/illegal drugs is essential for achieving this goal. University policy is that all students are expected to refrain from the use of tobacco, alcohol, and other recreational or unlawful drugs during the period of their enrollment at the University.” 
So Loma Linda University expects their students not to drink “during the period of their enrollment.” But if anyone insists on drinking whiskey anyways, LLU wants to make sure that for $69.98 you drink with pride representing your university, and with these specialty drinking bottles containing the LLU logo.
“The liquor traffic is a terrible scourge to our land, and is sustained and legalized by those who profess to be Christians. In thus doing, the churches make themselves responsible for all the results of this death-dealing traffic. The liquor traffic has its root in hell itself, and it leads to perdition.” (Temperance, p. 43).
Is this all just one big mistake or a lack of oversight by someone at Loma Linda University who is running a promotional campaign on their “official” online bookstore? Or has alcohol become the new lucrative commodity that LLU wants to cash in on? Regardless of how these whiskey bottles ended up on the university’s campus store website, they go against everything Seventh-day Adventists represent. They go against both the Bible and the Spirit of Prophecy, and they are in conflict with the university’s own policy on alcohol.
“Drink is a fearful agency of hell. When once the habit of drink is formed, men are led on and on in the path of slavery and degradation. I rejoice that it has been my privilege to bear my testimony on this subject before crowded assemblies in many countries. Many times I have spoken on this subject to large congregations at our camp-meetings” (Ellen G. White, Letter 78, 1911).
