    Family has a craft beer small bar. I like a glass of wine at dinner. I grew up in the age of legalistic churches so I too don’t want to say it is “unholy” to have church at a bar. This has nothing to do with right or wrong or legalism. It has everything to do with respect for the KING OF KINGS and LORD OF LORD’S that was stripped and beaten and hung on a CROSS for our sins, why do we want to bring that worship into a compromising arena? Where is the respect for ~~GOD gave the Jews a very specific road map of how to worship HIM. . . . Unless there is no where else to hold your worship service then by all means but keep the drinking out of it. Maybe after the service, or not but not during. The drinking would degrade the persons trueness to THE HOLY SPIRIT, and easily carried away you would not be able to believe if you were really filled with the HOLY SPIRIT or alcoholic sprits which would get very dangerous. So bottom line BAD IDEA

    The link for the “What if God…?” song lyrics doesn’t work. Looks like the song was deleted from the site.

    Christians are supposed to be a light in a dark world. If we are the same as the unsaved world we will not shine the light of Christ. 3 of my pastor’s siblings became alcoholics, so there is no way he would approve of this. We are supposed to be salt in a decaying world. Our body is the temple of God, so why would we pollute it with alcohol and cigarettes, which would lead to sickness and an early death. Very sad.

    WOW. I’ve never before heard of Pub Theology (warped theology, it is), but the term warned me it wouldn’t be Biblical. It’s not. Statements like “…one part church and one part party” and “Faith, Hope, Love and Beer” frankly sound blasphemous to me. I keep thinking, What’s Next??? Lord, have mercy on the Body of Christ in America. Help us, Lord, to return to our first Love and abide in You.

    Great post! Yes, that is part of the sin of the emergent church, the embracing of sin, the casual approaching to God, the irreverent attitude and unholy behavior. It even reaches a level of flaunting sin instead of repenting of it in shame. They mix the holy with the profane. They enter a bar and think they can ‘do church.’ If a sinner still steeped in the muddy mires of sin shares the gospel with another sinner of like manner, the gospel loses its power to the hearer and the teller is dripping with hypocrisy. The hearer might ask, “oh, so I can be… more righteous… like you?” We are called to be holy, righteous, the light of the world, and the salt of the earth.
