is it ok that our place of worship is in the middle of beerhouses and vidoeke bars?

is there anything in the bible which proves that this is wrong?

Update:

sorry it should be "videoke bars"

    No! Not even if you are kneeling down and throwing up in the toilet, and praying that you don't drown in it.

    It's not along the same lines of kneeling down in Church and submitting to the Lord.

    God bless,

    Worship is not a place, a building or the surroundings or street it is on. It can and frequently does happen on battlefields, before sporting events, major tests, before a child parents discover what they did :)

    Seriously, anywhere two people are gathered in his name means anywhere two people are gathered in his name. The more ornate the surroundings, the more distractions you add in the less likely you are to hear the actual message and get the intended meaning. If you rely on another to show you the way they show you THIER way not yours. Religion is an individual path for all. Nobody can lead you to your salvation but you. Churches, temples, mosques, voodoo circles, they are just a place and nothing more. It is the people in those places and what is in thier hearts that matters and nothing else.

    Who gives a rat's @ss about the Bible? A beerhouse is thed best place for a House of Worship. Did you know that Christ and Dionysus, god of wine and hedonism, had many things in common? Grapes grow on a vine, so do thorns. Didn't Christ wear a crown of thorns? 'Eat, drink, and do Mary, because tommorow you may die'. Isn't this wisdom from the AGes? When Christ visited a Priestess of Venus (sacred prostitute) and He paid her fee, His disciples asked Him about this and He said,'give unto Rome that which is Romes'. Do you see?

    If you are forced to worship in that kind of place then I guess the Lord understands.

    Like the book of Daniel, Daniel was surrounded by idol worshippers and unbelievers, but God did not remove him. God used him to bless those around him.

    Pray to God about your situation. Leave if you must, but for all you know, God might have placed you there for a reason.

    Pray to Him and seek His Will.

    Jesus, himself, went to the places where the apostles thought he should not be going because they were not considered holy. Jesus rebuked them saying what good does it do to only preach to those who already know the truth. I used to run Karaoke in a bar out here and I took every chance I got to speak to others about GOD and I believe I helped several of those I spoke to come to God and begin to rethink their walk.

    The bible doesn't exclude any place from being a house of worship.

    I don't think, but personally it is wrong. You have a God who answers prayers if I am not deceived. Pray and chase them away. I know a church now and in that plot where worship is going on now was a reounced bar. Prayers chased them away. Don't you have that faith that can move mountains?

    You have beer nearby? What could be wrong with that? It's not illegal where I live.

    Have a happy day!
