Christians and Partying

Whatever term you use for partying, night clubbing, celebrating, having a good time, or unwinding is not important. If it is associated with drunkenness, immoral sex, or unbecoming conduct, it is sin. Whether or not a Christian indulges, or is just present for the so called ‘action’, both have their consequences. It is sin to even be associated with darkness and the things of the night if you are a Christian. If indulgence does take place, that Christian is not to be associated with.

Let’s not beat-around-the-bush. Sin is sin. Christians are called to be different from the world. The seven NT Scriptures below spell it out quite plain. They are addressed to Christians. The end result will lead to eternity in hell. Examine yourself. Do not rest your eternity on any man made doctrines like ‘Once Saved, Always Saved’. God will judge according to the original intent of His Word and not what some interpret it to be. God’s Word warns us. We are not to be lumped in with the ways of the world. Christians are to live as children of the light. We are not to be out dancing the night away. We are especially warned when living in the end times to ‘watch out’. Let’s not be fools by not heeding what our Lord has to say:

1. Because we belong to the day, we must live decent lives for all to see. Don’t participate in the darkness of wild parties and drunkenness, or in sexual promiscuity and immoral living, or in quarreling and jealousy. Instead, clothe yourself with the presence of the Lord Jesus Christ. And don’t let yourself think about ways to indulge your evil desires. (Romans 13:13, 14 NLT)

2. For you are all children of the light and of the day; we don’t belong to darkness and night. So be on your guard, not asleep like the others. Stay alert and be clearheaded. Night is the time when people sleep and drinkers get drunk. (1 Thessalonians 5:5-7 NLT)

3. “Watch out! Don’t let your hearts be dulled by carousing and drunkenness, and by the worries of this life. Don’t let that day catch you unaware, like a trap. For that day will come upon everyone living on the earth. Keep alert at all times. And pray that you might be strong enough to escape these coming horrors and stand before the Son of Man.” (Luke 21:34-36 NLT)

4. You are not to associate with anyone who claims to be a believer yet indulges in sexual sin, or is greedy, or worships idols, or is abusive, or is a drunkard, or cheats people. Don’t even eat with such people. It isn’t my responsibility to judge outsiders, but it certainly is your responsibility to judge those inside the church who are sinning. (1 Corinthians 5:11-12 NLT)

5. Don’t you realize that those who do wrong will not inherit the Kingdom of God? Don’t fool yourselves. Those who indulge in sexual sin, or who worship idols, or commit adultery, or are male prostitutes, or practice homosexuality, or are thieves, or greedy people, or drunkards, or are abusive, or cheat people—none of these will inherit the Kingdom of God. (1 Corinthians 6:9, 10 NLT)

6. But what if the servant thinks, ‘My master won’t be back for a while,’ and he begins beating the other servants, partying, and getting drunk? The master will return unannounced and unexpected, and he will cut the servant in pieces and banish him with the unfaithful. (Luke 12:45, 46 NLT)

7. Don’t be drunk with wine, because that will ruin your life. Instead, be filled with the Holy Spirit, singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs among yourselves, and making music to the Lord in your hearts. (Ephesians 5:18, 19 NLT)
