|Question / Issue|
|Is it okay to go to a secular nightclub and dance and fellowship with friends? Is it forbidden in the Bible?|
|Answer / Solution|
There is no direct prohibition on dance and fellowship in the Bible; however, the Bible does direct the Christian to “be separate from the world while living in it.” Going to a nightclub is not acceptable Christian behavior for the following reasons:
1. Self-deception: you are tricking yourself by thinking that you and your friends can handle the various “attractions” present in a nightclub. The “nightclub” lifestyle is sensual and carousing in its nature, and therefore clearly unbiblical.
2. Others-deception: you are sending a message to the world that Christianity supports the sort of lifestyle that you’re living. Does the music and activity of a night club have any redeeming value? Does it honor God in any way?
3. Christ-defamation: those who know that you are a Christian and know about or enjoy the nightclub lifestyle with you, see Jesus as a person who does not care about purity of mind and body.
