S5•E26 | Romans 14 | Can Christians Do X? The Gray Area of Christianity

About This Project

Can a Christin do ___________? Is it ok if a Believer ___________?

Christians do not just live among each other – we AFFECT each other. Our harmony IN the church is a testimony OUTSIDE the church.

Romans 14 “Do not pass judgment on one another”.

“In essentials, unity; in nonessentials, liberty; in all things, charity.” – Augustine


How are Christians supposed to navigate Gray Areas? How are Christians supposed to act when they disagree over Gray Areas? What exactly ARE the Gray Areas?

Be careful not to ASSUME that what OFFENDS YOU automatically OFFENDS GOD.


Scriptures Studied: Romans 11:17-36, Matthew 21:43-46, 1 Corinthians 10:12, Ephesians 2:11-13, Romans 1:16-17,
