The Church Must Be a "No Stumbling Zone" Romans 14:13-23
Topic: Romans Passage: Romans 14:13–14:23
- Is there anything you are doing that is harmful to other believers?
- How often do you weigh your choices by whether they will help or hinder others?
- Is there anyone you need to forgive for causing you to stumble? Anyone you need to seek forgiveness from?
- What’s more common: Being too worried about how you affect others or not worried enough? Why is that?
- Discuss this statement: “If I know that you have a conviction about something that Scripture does not condemn or forbid, I will not do it, eat it, drink it, or serve it. It is not an option for me. I will not try to talk you into it or exert any kind of pressure. I’m going to respect your convictions. You are more important to me than my freedom.” How does this reflect the heart of Romans 14:13-23? Why is this response not more prevalent? What love does it show? What unlove does the opposite show?
- What does Romans 14:13-23 teach us about God, the Church’s harmony, and our Gospel ministry?
