Lists … I grew up in a time when most

Lists …
I grew up in a time when most Christians had lists. These lists were never produced it was like an oral tradition passed down through the generations dependent on which church you attended.
On this list there were things like:
The cinema
Make up
Clothes
And these things Paul mentions
Food and drink.
Sabbath.
The lists showed whether someone was a true Christian.
Maybe some people still have lists.
Romans 14 tells us that we should live our lives with other people in mind. Not that we try and get them to conform to what we think is acceptable but that we allow them to be who they are. They don’t come on our list.
Similarly we don’t use our freedom to offend. We don’t try and get on their list.
It will be a good day when there are no lists.
