Here are some thoughts as I am preparing a message on Christian conduct from Romans 14.
There is no doubt that some areas of conduct are crystal clear in the Scriptures, and that others are not so clear.
However, I do believe that God has given us three things that need to be considered when dealing with questionable issues: conviction, conscience, and consideration.
1) Conviction looks forward.
2) Conscience looks back.
3) Consideration looks to the left and right.
I believe that conviction, conscience, and consideration should govern how, why, and what we do at all times.
If what we are doing violates one of these at any point, we probably shouldn't be doing it.
