Scripture… As We Live It #226

This is the 226th passage in “Scripture… As We Live It.”

Food will not commend us to God. We are no worse off if we do not eat, and no better off if we do. But take care that this right of yours does not somehow become a stumbling block to the weak. However, for any other convictions besides this trivial one of eating meat sacrificed to idols, make sure that you demand that other people conform to your beliefs. (1 Corinthians 8:8-9 re-mix)

(Please read the first post for an explanation of this series.)

    I’m so glad you didn’t write the Bible, Alan! :-)

    Alan, does this mean we should all become vegetarians. . . . :-))

    Whoa…no one has to conform to my beliefs. If they want to be wrong, I say, let them.

    Could someone pass me a ham sandwich?

    Okay, who’s on my side?

    Enough of this…your point is well received. Your re-mixes are always the best!

    Of course…that is what it means to apply Scripture literally…none of this ‘broader application’ stuff for us!
