Suspect activities

  1. Thank you Derek.

    Might I suggest that there is another constraint which Paul highlights in the verses immediately preceding those you have highlighted in Romans 14, that although it may be legitimate for us to eat / drink / engage in a particular activity which is not proscribed by scripture, and which we might on other occasions receive with thanksgiving – nevertheless we need to be sensitive to the possibility of putting a “stumbling block or obstacle” in the way of another believer (Rom 14:13).

    This is particularly relevant when relating to those from other cultures than our own.

  2. Hi Ian, sorry I missed this one. Yes, I agree, this is a good point. It is interesting that the principle continues around the idea of love. The love of God and the love of our fellow man.
