Part 2 - Food Fight!

May 20, 2018    Senior Pastor Armin Sommer

There was tension between the 2 groups that comprised the congregation of Roman Christians. One group consisted of those who, in order to avoid association with paganism, avoided meat and wine, which would often be purchased from vendors who had dedicated them to pagan deities. They were essentially vegetarians. (“Weak in faith”) The other group was made up of Christians who felt free to eat & drink anything. (“Strong”) They enjoyed great freedom in Christ. Last wk’s: Don’t make disputable issues into non-negotiables. In this week’s passage he focuses on the responsibility of the “stronger brother” toward the “weaker brother”.
