If a man or human errs on the side of evil, even so slightly, are they eternally damned? I hope not for I know evil too. But an even better question might be, is it more evil to cast a repentant man as evil, even thou he has confessed his sins and seeks G*d forgiveness then it is to deny forgiveness? Shall we cast out all that have transgressed but are repentant? Who amongst us is so pure that they shall not also be casted out by a mob that seeks not goodness and forgiveness but power by a perversion of His desire to bring us all sinner and saint to His grace. God's gift to us is a chance to be with Him in heaven. The only thing that matters here on Earth is that you use this time to gain entry into the Kingdom of Heaven. Do not bare false witness, please I beg of you, don't.
Don't you make your living from the fruits of the bar you own and run?
Christians sometimes go to bars in weakness, but they aren't proud of it, because bars are for the more private pleasures, the darker impulses, the place of the other side, where we indulge the passions that we hope God isn't watching us indulge and be seduced by.
To be the overlord of all that action, the boss man, the gold collecting host and enabler of the drunken play palace, and then to play the holy man, the morally superior to those on this thread, when pushing a racist, Stormfront hero, and con man?
Well, maybe it does fit in the Ron Paul bizarro world.

I see, lol, owning a little beer joint in Texas makes me immoral. hmmm? I'll have to think about that. At one time not very long ago my little community of 2500 or so has 57 beer joints, lol we are down to about 5 or 6 counting the VFW and the American Legion. A beer joint only sells beer and wine not hard liquor. So I think, once again you've jumped to another wrong conclusion.
Curious why are you so big on judging everyone? Looking for dark secrets. I'm not the one castings stones and while I admit I am not a very good Christian I am a Christian and everyone in my world including my customers knows it. As for money the beer joint makes very little but it does keep food on the table for 2 single moms, one 76 year old grandmother and 1 56 year old man that is no longer able to shrimp for a living. As for me I am a retired xNASA kinda guy living on a fixed income of not a whole lot. Property taxes are starting to hurt but hopefully I'll be bale to keep up with them.
Hope to see you on a thread we can find a little common ground.
