What Is A Good Christian Meal?

To eat meat or not eat meat. That was the question many Christians struggled with in the first century. It was such a controversy that Paul spent a whole chapter in the book of Romans addressing what may seem to us a trivial question.

Romans chapter 14 is a complex segment of scripture that frequently has been both misunderstood and abused. It confronts a variety of issues. The text arises out of a transitional era in religious history, when many converts to Christ were passing from one great divine system (the Mosaic regime) to another (the Christian age).

Because of the diverse backgrounds, religious and cultural, on the part of both Jews and Gentiles, many problems arose that threatened the unity of the body of Christ. A number of principles, therefore, are set forth in this chapter that, if pursued conscientiously, would help ameliorate this potentially explosive situation.

Let us consider some of the circumstances reviewed in this chapter and note the applications that are relevant for any age. Perhaps you might wish to read the chapter before proceeding with this article.

PRAYER: Thanks be unto God for His wonderful gift: Jesus Christ, the only begotten Son of God

is the object of our faith; the only faith that

saves is faith in Him. AMEN.
