Is it scripturally okay for Christians to drink hard liquor?
Section 89 of The Doctrine and Covenants? Where is that in the Bible? Christ always cited to scripture. Where is section 89 in scripture?

Alcoholic beverages can be enjoyed by people who want to use them, in moderation and under control, usually without any ill effects.
But when they are used in excess, then this becomes an abuse of alcohol, which is harmful, even deadly, to the abusers as well as to others.
The fact that alcoholic beverages need not be condemned can be seen in the Bible. There God is spoken of as arranging a future time of happiness for mankind when, among other things, he will provide “a banquet of well-oiled dishes, a banquet of wine.” (Isa. 25:6)
Surely the Creator would not use wine as a symbol of happiness if it were an item forbidden to mankind.
Also, Jesus Christ made fine wine at a wedding celebration, showing that it can have its proper place.

No. Christ has issued a Word of Wisdom that prohibits Christians from drinking alcohol recreationally. See Section 89 of The Doctrine and Covenants.

Not specifically okay or not but depends on its effects on the individual. Does is cause health problems or irresponsible behavior. If so, then the individual should think of not doing it.

Yes. Drinking alcohol is not a sin. Drunkenness is the sin, and like all sins, it is forgiven when the person believes in Jesus for eternal life.
The truth is that death leads to immediate heaven or hell, depending only on whether the person believed in Jesus for eternal life, or not.
The truth is that Jesus loves you and wants to bless your life freely :) Most of all, Jesus wants you with Him forever, and not in hell. The truth is that every belief except one will lead to eternal torment in the lake of fire for every person. Because nothing pays for our sins except the death and blood of Jesus, the sacrifice of Jesus that is already accomplished by Him . Jesus loves you! The truth is that Jesus is God, and Jesus died on the cross to pay for all of our sins in full, and then Jesus resurrected from the dead. Nothing else pays for our sins, not works, not deeds, not religions. So the only way to heaven and to avoid hell, is by believing in Jesus for eternal life (John 6:47), without adding any of your own works (Romans 4:5). Believe in Jesus to take you to heaven, and you will be in heaven, no matter what, guaranteed. That easy, thanks to Jesus! Tell Jesus that you thank Him that you will be with Him in heaven when you die, because you believe in Jesus! It is too late to be saved, after death
