Title: Did Jesus Go to parties?
Post by: Richard OFfill on November 04, 2019, 11:56:37 AM
In order to justify their participating in worldly entertainment, it is not unusual for someone to point out that Jesus associated with sinners. It is true that Jesus could often be found in the company of sinners.

But we should not for a moment think He would hang around the red light district to minister to prostitutes or the adult book stores to share His faith with sexual perverts.

Jesus was accused of being a drinker and a glutton (Luke 7:34). But it would be a mistake to think this meant He would participate in drunken orgies to save the lost. Although Jesus was found in the company of sinners, they were not the sinners who were "into sin." Rather, they were sinners who were sick of sin and who wanted out.
Some say, but what's the problem? Jesus went to parties. It is true that He was present at certain festive occasions (John 2:1), but it could never be said He went to parties in the sense of the word as understood by this generation

There is no record of Him having frequented the gladiator contests, either.  One can witness and minister to pagans, while still avoiding the appearance of evil.
