The short answer is, yes, it is sinful for a Christian-or anyone-to attend a strip club and watch strippers. However, the very fact this question is raised deserves some more attention. Often, when...

Going to a strip club just feeds our lust. But, you don't have to go to a strip club. All you have to do is look at a woman with lust in your heart. 

We begin looking at women as sex objects instead of the person God made. In this day and age the way women dress it is hard not to be affected by this sin. We are all affected to a degree but it is when we allow these thoughts to take over and we begin to think upon them, and mull them over in our hearts that it becomes sin.

To be tempted is not sin. But when we allow the temptation a place in our hearts then lust takes over. All sin begins in our evil hearts, 

We are to overcome evil with good.. Even though we want so much to live for God we know this evil still lurks in us. It seems as though when we overcome one sin two more take its place. I still have to cry out sometimes to God and with Paul say."Oh wretched man that I am" who will deliver me from this body of death." Only Jesus. And I praise Him and thank Him all the more for going to the cross for me. 

And satan never sleeps. When we fall into sin he is right there to tell us we must not be saved at all. And when we overcome sin he comes as an angel of light and tells us how good we are and how much God is going to reward us for our great righteousness. 

Only the Lord can deliver us from our own hearts. If we walk in the spirit we will not do the deeds of the flesh. But how to overcome pride and selfrighteousness I know not untill the Lord brings me low again. 

After a lifetime of this we are so ready for the Lord to take us home. We get so tired of fighting the sins that so often beset us. But we still have to press toward the mark. 

But one thing is for sure. We begin to love the Lord all the more for saving us sinners. His blood sacrifice means way more to us. We thank Him for His mercy and grace that without we would be in hell.

My opinion is that if we say we are Christians, we should have evidence that proves what we really are. Gods Word tells us we must live holy-Hebrews 12:14, for one reference. The Bible gives more scriptures to verify this fact. Where we go, how we live our lives daily, and who we associate with, can be good evidence. I recently preached a sermon in which I sort of outlined what a holy life really is, and how we, as Christians, should live in these evil days.

Yes, 1John 215-17. "For all that is in the World --the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eye, and the pride of life -- is not of the Father but is of the world". If this verses do not explain the question, nothing will. Lust has been the downfall of alot of Chrisians, starting with King David. We are living in a country where seeing "Flesh" is too common. Confess and move on.
