Don’t call evil - 1 Peter 4:3-4 MSG

nightclubs don’t promote godly activities

You’ve already put in your time in that God-ignorant way of life, partying night after night, a drunken and profligate life. Now it’s time to be done with it for good.
Of course, your old friends don’t understand why you don’t join in with the old gang anymore. But you don’t have to give an account to them. (1 Peter 4:3-4 MSG)

Isn't it strange that when we were living insane lives in sin, everyone thought we were normal, but when we discover true life in Christ and get delivered from all forms of evil, they think we are crazy. How perverted is that! This is what Isaiah 5:20 is speaking of. “Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil…!”

Someone once asked me if it’s wrong for a Christian to go to nightclubs. My response was that the nightclubs don’t promote godly activities; therefore it’s not a place for Christians. In 1 John 2:15, the Bible says, “Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world…”

The nightclubs and pubs promote ungodly activities and are therefore not the right place for a Christian to hang out. Psalm 1:1 says, “Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly….” 2 Corinthians 6:14-15 says, “Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: … And what communion hath light with darkness.

Therefore, you shouldn’t go to such places except for evangelical outreaches, if led by the Spirit.

Some believers have actually taken advantage of such gatherings to propagate the Gospel and used such venues for outreaches where many souls were won to Christ; that’s commendable!
