Two filters for new events

Sometimes when I'm pondering events or activities I have suggestions pop into my mind which, upon a few seconds of rational thought, are swiftly rejected.

Two filters which any potential event must navigate are the effect it would have on younger Christians and non-believers.

What kind of example would the proposed event set for the believers who are younger than you? Could you take an 18 year old to the activity? 


If a person who didn't go to church asked what you did, what message would the get from hearing about your activity? If they asked if an activity is "okay with the bible" and the "church is cool with it" can you honestly answer in the affirmative? 

If an event can successfully negotiate these two hurdles then it's closer to becoming reality...
