Limiting Our Liberties
I Corinthians 8:9 Amplified- "Only be careful that this power of choice (this permission and liberty to do as you please) which is yours, does not [somehow] become a hindrance (cause of stumbling) to the weak or over scrupulous [giving them an impulse to sin]." WHY is the believer taught to limit his liberties?"- To stay out of bondage- to not be a stumbling block- and so that we build others up and not tear them down.
Let us not therefore judge one another any more: but judge this rather, that no man put a stumblingblock or an occasion to fall in his brother's way.
- Romans 14:13 (KJV)
