September 24, 2017, 10:45:16 pm Psalm 51:17 says: The specific rule pertaining to the national anthem is found on pages A62-63 of the league rulebook. It states: “The National Anthem must be played prior to every NFL game, and all players must be on the sideline for the National Anthem. “During the National Anthem, players on the field and bench area should stand at attention, face the flag, hold helmets in their left hand, and refrain from talking. The home team should ensure that the American flag is in good condition. It should be pointed out to players and coaches that we continue to be judged by the public in this area of respect for the flag and our country. Failure to be on the field by the start of the National Anthem may result in discipline, such as fines, suspensions, and/or the forfeiture of draft choice(s) for violations of the above, including first offenses.”
September 20, 2017, 04:32:32 am Christian40 says: "The most popular Hepatitis B vaccine is nothing short of a witch’s brew including aluminum, formaldehyde, yeast, amino acids, and soy. Aluminum is a known neurotoxin that destroys cellular metabolism and function. Hundreds of studies link to the ravaging effects of aluminum. The other proteins and formaldehyde serve to activate the immune system and open up the blood-brain barrier. This is NOT a good thing."

The counter argument i run into people when i say christians shouldn't eat at alcholic restaurants is "you go to Food Lion where they sell it" well good one. It would be nice to have some land and milk my own cows. I'm praying for that, but seriously. Also, eating on the sabbath day is a hard one too, they say "you have to have police and nurses" well okay but i was talking about the local gas station. Fill 'em up Sat night. You can't witness to someone asking them to go to church with you all while you're biting into one of their sandwiches and tipping them for working during church so you can fill your stomach.

One of my mom's close friends used to own an Applebees restaurtant a while back - yes, they had a bar within it like the other Applebees.

Yes, I think they're good Christians, but nonetheless, we can be destroyed for a lack of knowledge. Yes, it's not a good Christian witness to own anything that sells liquor. I know we're not under the law, but under grace now, but again, what kind of example are we setting by eating at a restaurant that serves alcohol?

About that 2nd Cor 6:14-17 passage to "come out among them and be ye separate" passage - it's not like we have to force ourselves and make known to others demonstratively that we're doing this(as Christians). It's that b/c we are being obedient to God's word, others around us(the lost and the lukewarm Christians) do NOT want to be around us b/c we don't want to do these things. Thought I would add this here.

That certainly is difficult. But where I live, it cannot be obeyed easily. I am afraid the only solutions are to either eat and not order anything alcoholic or not eat there at all. Therefore, I am not sure if I can agree. I have eaten at so many restaurants that sell alcohol and never desired to drink any. Therefore, I will disagree with the others in this discussion. If we do not order something alcohol inspite of it being available, we are already setting a positive example. Period.
