    Just my thoughts:
    1Th 5:22 Abstain from all appearance of evil.


    What is it that you would be looking for in a night club? Just lost people doing worldly things.
    What if by going I caused someone with an alcohol or lust problem to think it is okay and thereby cause them to stumble?
    Psa 62:5 My soul, wait thou only upon God; for my expectation is from him.

    Why would a Christian go to a nightclub?

    To dance...to take part in the culture of clubbing?

    To find people to witness to? Would they be more likely be dragged into the wordly scene?

    There are surely better places for Christians to socialise.

    "We have been called out of such darkness"? 1Peter 2:9 etc.

    The absolutely vital thing in the Christian life......is to meet Jesus.

    There is no doubt in my mind that having met Him........and known His power in the manifestation of such meeting........The question asked here becomes absurd.

    It would not be a sin for me to enter a 'night club'..... but I would be like a fish out of the water, an alien environment to my faith in Jesus

    We have something better.......in Jesus

    "Seek the LOrd while he may be found.......call upon him while he is near"

    Get to know Him!
    Jesus said "I am the WAY the TRUTH and the LIFE"......Without the WAY there is no GOING, without the TRUTH there is no KNOWING without the LIFE there is no LIVING....Thats what Jesus said.

    what will a Christ-like be doing in a night club.. doing some research about his christian life?. if a christian is found in a club, it means his heart is idle . and a idle heart will be the workshop of evil.

    I voted yes only because if you go "clubbing", you are not putting God first. Going there, being there in itself is not the sin....what it leads you to participate in usually leads to sin.

    I knew a pastor who went to a nightclub to talk to a member of his church, trying to bring him out of his darkness so to speak. The guy left with him.

    I know someone who takes the Liberty in Christ a bit far by thinking going out to clubs with her husband is ok...she witnesses to people, nothing worse than a tipsy bible thumper!! If any of the drunks remember it in the morning then maybe a purpose was served, but I don't think it is God's will for her to do such.

    "Clubbing" as a term is very revealing--it means the person is wholly participating in the life.

    My idea of being a witness for Jesus Christ is to minister and witness to those people who are entering and exiting the clubs OUTSIDE.

    I seem to remember this guy who used to drink and hang out witnessing to bad people as well.
    His name
    Jesus!

    Luk 5:30 But their scribes and Pharisees murmured against his disciples, saying, Why do ye eat and drink with publicans and sinners?
    Luk 5:31 And Jesus answering said unto them, They that are whole need not a physician: but they that are sick
    Luk 5:32 I came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance. just a thought.

    But no I myself would not go clubbing because then I may be tempted and fall or I may put a stumbling block in front of another brother or sister in Christ.

    So it comes down to if you are legitimately led by the Spirit of God to go where he sends you.

    Sin is everything that does not spring from faith in God.

    It is not always very helpful or satisfactory to label activities sinful or not sinful, and it can be a short cut to legalism rather than to the freedom to which we are called.

    There is nothing wrong in itself about having a good time in a nightclub. Your Christian witness to your friends is about your whole life, and you are likely to have more influence on them on the dancefloor than you would outside handing out tracts.

    But you ought not be naive about the environment - there is plenty to offend and distract you from your walk with God.

    I would say that in the end, this is a question of wisdom, rather than of black and white right and wrong.

    Be sensible and make sure you are accountable to Christian friends that you can trust. Then if you do fall (and we all do at some time) you will have someone nearby to help you back onto your feet.

    Without knowing you or your situation, its not really appropriate to give a more specific answer.

    It depends on your purpose for being there. Some clubs are known for their cuisine. If you go for a nice meal but leave before the "entertainme nt" starts, there shouldn't be a problem.

    I want to be a coin in God's pocket that He can spend any way He wishes.
