Dancing: Why Study It?
  • Dancing is one of the more popular social activities in the world, from the primitive to the highly artistic “Dancing With the Stars”
  • Whether or not a Christian can participate in such is determined by God’s word, not by culture, tradition, or opinion
  • God’s word directs every aspect of our life, including entertainment and recreation
