is it a sin to go into a bar?

Report as

No. Entering a building is not a sin (unless you are under age and breaking the law). Having a drink isnt a sin either. Getting drunk and loosing your self control is a sin.

That said, God says we should strive to be good witnesses, living our lives so that others can see our Him in our lives. If you are seen entering a bar by people who know you claim to be a Christian then that will ruin your witness to them and however many people they tell 'hey you know who i saw going into/coming out of a bar?'.

I don't recall reading that particular action as a Sin in the Bible. So no, it's not.

No, as long as you're not doing anything in that bar thats bad. People seem to think alcohol is bad, but its not; its the misuse of it that is bad.

The Bible say that if you feel wrong about doing something and then you do it, it's a sin. there's nothing wrong with going in a bar, but if you're a recovering alcoholic or something, then it would be bad

... Then there is no sin in doing what you think is right. Heil Hitler, then? He thought he was doing the right thing.

It's a sin what usually happens AFTER a drunk patron leaves the bar.

But, but Proverbs 6:27-28 says, "Can a man take fire in his bosom, and his clothes not be burned? Can one go upon hot coals, and his feet not be burned?" In other words, you shouldn't put yourself in a position where there is temptation because you'll more than likely fall into it.

No, as long as you don't pick up bad habits..Not everyone in a bar is immature or into habits that could get you into trouble.Just make good choices.

No, and neither is drinking I suppose. But I have vowed to never drink alcohol so I'm always the designated driver... But no, entering a bar isn't sinful

It really depends on the place. Many restaurants have bars in them. What is the real intent of the business and the people there? The Bible declares that light has nothing to do with darkness. We should come out and be separate from the world.
We should be holy and live holy lives - lives that glorify Jesus. If we love Jesus, we should hate sin.

I don't think it says anywhere in the bible that bars or drinking is a sin. I'm sure "Jesus" got drunk plenty of times.

I don't recall a verse saying that anywhere. Drinking it and getting are two separate things.
