Would you say in and of themselves, are these sins?
Taken as presented, in and of themselves, no.
But that's a very tricky question.
It could be all of the above, or none of the above.
"And he that doubteth is damned if he eat, because he eateth not of faith: for whatsoever is not of faith is sin." Romans 14:23.
I vote "all of the above could be sins given the situation"
i agree with webdog.
I don't think going to a play is a transgression against God. Unless it's a really lousy play.
Not going to church on Sunday is a sin. Hebrews 10:25.
I go to a church in which every one of those listed items are always a sin, whatever the situation (except for standing to pray--kneeling is also acceptable).
I would not agree with you.
I think that clears it up right there. Trick Question ? :laugh:
In and of themselves, no. It depends on the reason behind the action. Take not going to church services as an example. Why is the person not going? If the reason is, "I can't be bothered", or "I'm too busy", or something similar, then clearly that is sinful. On the other hand, the answer might be, "I am in prison because I am a Christian, so I cannot get out to a church service" or "I am in hospital with a long-term illness. The hospital chaplin is a rank modernist who tells everyone that the bible is just a book of fables" or something else in similar vein, I would say the non-attendance is not a sin.
no, unless if you have been convicted other wise....
Some of them would be sins if doing so would cause someone else to violate their conscience.
And if you're getting up in years or you know you have health risk factors, it may be:
I have to agree on most of them being sins too.
Not going to church on Sunday. - Waht do you think? Yes.
Drinking wine on occasion. Why drink alcohol if you can't get drunk?
I say bring back prohibition, like Billy Sunday would say.
Eating with non-Christians. As long as you're trying to witness to them.
Going to movies. What are you watching? Yes and no.
Playing Cards. Go fish is a fine game.
Going to theatre, like plays, musicals. Depends is their nudity?
Dancing - They grind on each other in today's society. Dancing can also cause lust and impure thoughts. No on dancing, unless it's your spouse.
Not standing to pray. You can pray to God standing, kneeling, etc.
Listening to non Christian music. Non-christian lyrics are profane. Greed, lust, premarital sex, etc. It's better not to.
