Should a christian go to a waterpark?
« on: June 20, 2013, 09:07:02 AM »
I am wondering how far I can take my new found liberty in Christ. Should I, in good conscience, be able to take my family to a water park this summer?

What would be your motive for going and why would you not go?

I doubt your motive would be to watch the bikinis.  I suspect it would be to swim and have a family fun event.  So why would you not go?

Only if you know the IFB Managawd and his Informers won't catch you.  You also need to watch out for the WagginTungs.   

Oh, yeah.....and the FlappinGums.  They can be the worst.

"his Informers"  written from experience I suspect.

It's just one of those things I have been told my whole life was wrong, and I figured before I tear down the fence I might want to consider why it was built in the first place.

It's sad to think that people have to worry about stuff like this in IFBdumb.  I'm glad my Dad pulled our family out of that mess when I was a teen.

Self modesty is the best policy.

I go to the beach, water parks and even the pool sometimes. I don't personally attempt to join some people in wearing "revealing apparel".

If I worried over catching a glimpse of something I shouldn't see.... I'd never go to the grocery store or the gas station. I'd have to hire a devout Muslim man to bring my gas to me.

It was built so they could keep you under their control.  Tear it down and burn it.

Wise decision.  Your family (kids & spouce), most likely have been told it is wrong also.  They will also need to know why if you go or don't go.

I was faced with that same situation while I was still in the xer movement.  Communication within the family made the decision very easy.  It also helped to lead us away from the movement years later.
