A young lady who was attempting to defend her attendance at questionable places of amusement told her friend that she thought a Christian could go anywhere.
Her friend replied, “Certainly she can, but I am reminded of a little incident which happened last summer when I went with a party of friends to explore a coal mine. One of the young women appeared dressed in a lovely white gown.
When her friends disagreed with her, she appealed to the old miner who was to act as guide to the party. ‘Can’t I wear a white dress down into the mine?’ she asked irritably.
‘Yes, mum,’ returned the old man, ‘there is nothing to keep you from wearing a white frock down there, but there will be no way to keep you from wearing one back.’”
There is nothing that prevents a Christian from bringing his good testimony anywhere he goes; but there is much to keep him from bringing it back from questionable places.
