Thursday: Paul’s Concern — 2 Comments

  1. If we are in tune with our conscience, (the Holy Spirit) and is telling us that we are doing something wrong or “puts up a red flag” so to speak. I would think going to Christ in prayer, and study of the Bible would be the first step in discerning the truth of the issue. If there is still doubt as to the issue, maybe trying to find further insight using resources available to us, like this comment section. Maybe finding advice from your pastor, or others that may have struggled with the same issue in their past.

    The internet has been converted to do much evil in the world. It is refreshing to know there is also the ability to use it to find other like minded people united with God here as well. It seems that; like many things on our fallen world, objects and things are not inherently evil or good, but the choice of what we do with them determines the value of it.

  2. I have a different way of looking at that verse Gal2:14‘If you, though a Jew, live like a Gentile and not like a Jew, how can you force the Gentiles to live like Jews?’...Paul considered the Jewish believers highly just like I consider the SDA's highly(To follow the precepts of Jesus diligently and who should know better-LOVE),so if an SDA would start behaving like Peter at Antioch I would paraphrase that verse in our context today and say...‘If you, though a Jew(An SDA), live like a Gentile(Worldling) and not like an SDA, how can you force the Worldling to live like an SDA?’...SDA's live straight like Paul.

    With that understanding now follow on to finish the reading up to verse 21.
