"Disputable Matters"
Romans 14
Summary: God's word is true and without error. Truth in scripture cannot be changed, reinterpreted or watered down--especially about God, salvation, Jesus, sin, Heaven, Hell, and the inerrancy of scripture. But as we live according to scripture, we will deal with disputable matters among believers--secondary matters that dealing with applying God's truth. Christians become a poor witness when we mishandle disputable matters. In Romans 14, Paul shares examples of disputable matters and how Christians should deal with them.
