Romans 14 I have been pondering this passage for a few days now. Where do we draw the line on not offending our brother? This passage was written by Paul and as an example of his point, he cites the eating of certain foods being offensive to "weaker" believers. Now, the interesting point of this matter is that in Acts 10:9-16, it was revealed to Peter through a vision that ALL foods were acceptable and this point is reiterated in Galatians 2:11-21 when Paul himself jumps all over Peter for falling back into Jewish dietary law. So which is it? If it is to be both and we need to find congruency and consistency in Scripture, there has to be a line drawn somewhere. How do we proclaim what we know to be true from the Scriptures without causing offense to anyone? Is Romans 14 the Biblical equivalent to "political correctness?" When does "respect" become "coddling?" How do we "rebuke with all authority" (Titus 2:15) and how do we reconcile that "all Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, correcting, and training in righteousness" (2Timothy 3:16) when there are some passages that obviously offend some believers?
