consider others

Romans 14


For none of us liveth to himself, and no man dieth to himself.

This chapter talks about how no physical thing in the world is really necessarily bad, in and of itself, but things can be bad-- if people use them the wrong way from their own sinful hearts. We have the liberty, in the Lord, to take part in some things that other people think are sinful, (like working on the seventh day of the week, and eating pork). But those things would be sinful for us, if we took part in them at the expense of other peoples' conscience.

A lot of right and wrong is really about love and care for other people. So, instead of doing things just because we know they're OK for us to do, we need to consider the effects on the other people around us.
