Matters of Personal Conscience
"Let us pursue the things which make for peace and the things by which one may edify another." - Paul.
What kind of movies do we watch? Sports? What kind of Music artists do we listen to? Politics? What kind of clothes do we wear? Tattoos? Piercings? What kind of past life did we live? What kind of family were we born in? What type of culture surrounds our landscape? How old are we? Holidays? What kind of friends do we have? Social media?
What we may think is "appropriate," others might find "inappropriate?" "Do you have faith? Have it to yourself before God."
There is always context, and it is wise for us to meet somewhere around Romans 14. Are there boundaries to matters of conscience? We believe so, yes, indeed. Must we strive to uphold the doctrine of Christ? Absolutely. However, some brethren within the confines of liberty seek to bind their measurement upon others, which does not facilitate unity but creates unrighteous division and judgments.
We understand many of us have to go through moments of humble wisdom. May we pray for each other; some are more tender than others.
"Receive one who is weak in the faith, but not to disputes over doubtful things." - Paul.
