Evangelical college moves dancing off 'sin list'
On the first night of December, an unseasonably cold one in the Ozarks, the boys and girls of John Brown University primped in their zoot suits, suspenders, waistcoats, spats, faux-hawks, pompadours, knee-length pleated skirts, nylons, snoods and inch-high black heels and marched through snow drifts to their gymnasium in the Walton Lifetime Health Complex, one of northwest Arkansas’s monuments to the Wal-Mart family’s generosity. Inside, the gymnasium was decorated with rows of Christmas lights strung overhead across the width of the basketball court, from one railing of the mezzanine jogging track to the other. The occasion, which would last from 8 p.m. to 11 p.m., was a dance, the first of its kind at this small, nondenominational Christian college.

From the school’s founding in 1919 by John Brown Sr. — not the abolitionist but a Salvation Army itinerant turned preacher — until last October, ...

Helena, point? Just because we are discussing this issue means we don't care about people? Get real!

Two old ladies from an Independent Bible Church met on the street. One lady asked the other, "how's your family dear?". The other responded "Just fine. Why my one daughter married a deacon, and my son is attending Bob Jones". "How about your family?". "Not so good", the other old saint responded. "My boy is using drugs, and my daughter is dating a married man". "Oh well" said the other "as long as they don't dance!".

I would have to say, if all of those dancing were husband and wife, the music was christian and the beat was not sensual (it is possible to be dancing with your spouse and be lusting over someone else's), then it mAY be acceptable. If this is just something to give the students (married and unmarried) something to do or to become more acceptable to future students, it is wrong.

Good point John. I would have to put club "grinding" in a different category than country line dancing. For a lot of the gray line areas, I think intentions of the heart are more significant than the action itself.

Long article! (6-pages?)...because the issue, and people's perceptions of it, are complex.
I suppose. I've neither time nor patience to read it now, but look forward to comments
by those of you who will.

1 Cor 10:31 is the general rule for evaluating such things, and with such a wide variety
of dancing available--certainly some dancing is significantly more God-glorifying than
others. MUCH wisdom required here on the part of the one setting the guidlines.
