Questioned Things   1 comment

1 Cor. 8, 13

1.  Every act, if known, will influence another.  We can’t help it.  Our act helps to make this world.

2.  A thing we do not regard a sin may lead another to offend against his weak conscience.  To do so is to sin against him.

3.  We dare not live unmindful of those about us, even if we have no patience with their views.  Their souls are at stake.  “Let us consider one another to provoke unto love and good works.”

4.  When we sin against our weak brother we sin against Christ.  It is fearful to offend “one of these little ones that believe in Me.”

5.  In all questioned things where the right and wrong are not clearly distinguished our conduct should be determined by our weak brother’s conscience if we know what that is.

This is Christlike in Spirit.
