Christian Freedom and Relationships
Topic: Christian Freedoms and Relationships Passage: Romans 14:13–14:23
A matter of conscience is a practice about which God has not specifically spoken to in His Word.
The weak were those who were not yet grasping the full difference Christ’s death made for daily living.
Freedom in Jesus should not cause us to be harsh with those weaker in the faith (13, 20).
Freedom in Jesus should not destroy the work of God (15, 20).
Freedom in Jesus should not lead us or our brother to sin (14-23).
Important Side Note & Reminder: God’s explicit commands are not neutral.
Christian freedom meant to lead to righteousness, peace, joy in the Spirit , and upbuilding (vs. 17-19).
