WHY DO YOU WANT TO DANCE?

by Edd Sterchi

 

“DANCING IS FUN”

— Dancing may well be fin, but a lot of sins are fun.

    Hebrews 11:25 Moses resisted the pleasures of sin.

 

“THERE IS NO SEXUAL CONNOTATION WITH ME IN DANCING”

— Then why don’t boys dance with boys?

— Dancing is lust oriented

    I Peter 2:11 – We are to abstain from fleshly lusts.

 

“WELL, DANCING DOESNTAFFECTME THAT WAY—

I AM ABLE TO HANDLE IT”

Romans 14:15 - You may affect someone else “that way.”

— We are responsible for others.

    Maybe we can handle it, but will our actions cause a weaker brother or sister to fall?

 

“BOYS WILL HAVE THOSE THOUGHTS ANY WAY”

Maybe so, but you don’t throw matches at dynamite just because it will explode anyway.

 

“I WON’T FIT IN IF I DONT GO-- EVERYONE ELSE IS DOING IT”

Matthew 7:13 - It is difficult to get to heaven, sacrifices must be made.

Exodus 23:2 - Don’t follow a multitude to do evil.

— A Christian must stand out from the crowd, not blend in.

 

“I BE RIDICULED IF IDO NOT GO”

-- Matthew 5:12 - Yes, you probably will.

-- I Peter 4:16 – We will suffer sometimes as a Christian.

 

“THERE WILL BE CHAPERONES THERE”

— Then that makes it chaperoned sin.

— Chaperones cannot control your thoughts.

 

“JUST GO AND WATCH”

— If its wrong to dance, why would it be OK to watch?

Matthew 5:28

 

“THE BIBLE DOESN’T SAYNOT TO DANCE”

Galatians 5:19 - In reality, it does.

 

“BECAUSE I WANT TO DISOBEY GOD”

That is the only reason to go to the dance.
