Just imagine how our Churches and other relationships would change if we lived the mind of Christ in this way:
“Love each other with genuine affection, and take delight in honoring each other.” (Romans 12:10)
“Accept other believers who are weak in faith, and don’t argue with them about what they think is right or wrong. 2 For instance, one person believes it’s right to eat anything. But another believer with a sensitive conscience will eat only vegetables. 3 Those who feel free to eat anything must not look down on those who don’t. And those who don’t eat certain foods must not condemn those who do, for God has accepted them. 4 Who are you to condemn someone else’s servants?” 15:1 We who are strong ought to bear with the failings of the weak and not to please ourselves.”
Two Groups found in most Churches:
- Weak in faith – (Romans 14:1;15:1) – Those who feel bound to abide by rules and traditions that are not required by God’s absolutes.
- Strong in Faith – (Romans 15:1) – Those who do not feel bound by rules and traditions outside of God’s absolutes.
