Sinners, Bars and Jesus

So Catalyst Church recently did a sermon on "Do You Think Jesus Would Hang Out At A Downtown Bar?"  And then I read this article about a church having an Alpha course in a pub:  Go on, have a pint with the Lord - The Globe and Mail.

I keep hearing, "Sure Jesus would go to a bar.  He always hung out with sinners in the Scriptures."  A reference to, at least, Luke 15:1 Now the tax collectors and sinners were all drawing near to hear him. And the Pharisees and the scribes grumbled, saying, “This man receives sinners and eats with them.”

Just a point of reference:  Not everyone in a bar is some moral reprobate that doesn't go to church, alcoholic, addict, looking for a hook-up who is drinking away their kids food money.  Let's not paint with such a broad brush and stereotype people.  Let's know them and love them.

Jesus is the creator and author of this entire universe.  I don't think there are any places that are off limits to Him.
