Pardon my ignorance, being from the States and all, but what is a "bottle shop"? A bar?




A bottle shop is a place where people go to buy cartons of grog etc.

What's a 'grog'? :-)

"Smokes" Cigarettes?

Interesting getting the cultural differences here.
Generaly a "bottle shop" is a liquor store from my recollection on this side of the world ...

 Re:

Ever since I read up on Jack Chick himself, I cannot use his tracts. I have found some of the points he makes to be very convicting and Biblical, but there are too many wacky things mixed in (such as accusing the Vatican of storing the names of all Protestants in a large computer so they can one day kill them all.)

If you like the comic book style, then try this one out (it's one of my personal favorites, and at only $7.00 for 100, it's quite a deal):

Yeah, I know he's a bit of a conspiracy-theorist. That's unfortunate. I always think it's sad when men of God get sidetracked from the simplicity of "Christ and Him crucified" and go off on tangents such as blasting one particular religion or cult. Certainly we should preach against them and warn of false gods and idols, but let's not go overboard and get obsessed with theories. I think we should stick to preaching repentance unto salvation and let the chips fall as they may. I can't imagine Paul going on an anti-Jupiter or Zeus campaign where he's spreading all kinds of paranoidal propaganda about certain Greek shrines and temples.

 Re:

I don't know about Australia, the US or Canada, but here in England 'grog' is a mixture of alcohol and water. Isn't it funny how we can jump from one subject to the other? First we were talking about Chick Tracts, next we are talking about grog!

 Re:

Ah, so a 'bottle shop' is a bar. Interesting. Some guy used a Ray Comfort tract to pay his beer tab! Well, at least the bartender got a chance to read the gospel! What an awesome testimony if the tract actually led to his conversion...

 Re:

Nope a bottle shop is not a bar. Its just a shop that sells bottled booze in cartons etc.

Okay, this is getting pretty ridiculous.

Is "bottle shop" Austrailian for "liquour store?"

If it's not, I give up.

I'd say, "Give that man a cigar!!!" but it's bad enough that we're dicussing liquor, in this light. ;-)
