        Going out to bars
I am curious, what feeling you get on whether God wants us to go to bars, what if it is just to help a friend who plays in a band and then stay there all evening? Do you know of any bible verse that could give me an answer?

God has given us the inner witness. What does the Holy Spirit tell you? Do you feel a deep sense of peace over this, or is the Holy Spirit sending you warning signals?

To read more about the inner witness, read the link below:

Are you doing anything that is against what is written in the Word of God? If not, what is wrong with going to places? Just ask God, seek Him and decide. He is the best person to guide you.

I also have another piece of advice.
[Prov 12:26]
The righteous is more excellent than his neighbour: but the way of the wicked seduceth them.
[1 Cor 5:11]
But now I have written unto you not to keep company, if any man that is called a brother be a fornicator, or covetous, or an idolator, or a railer, or a drunkard, or an extortioner; with such an one no not to eat.

Have you wondered what this means? Jesus ate with sinners, so why do these verses say such things? Aren't we all sinners and we sup at His table?

I think what is in this scripture is advice for us not to associate with negative people who will pull us down. We all influence each other, either positively or negatively. That is why we are also asked to assemble together and to encourage one another.

We are free to do anything as long as we are not doing anything against God's word. But in the end, we are to walk in the Spirit.

[Galatians 5:16]
This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh.
