Christians should accept one another inspite of their differences. we may not agree with our fellow Christian about everything, but we can accept him and love him as a person. if we accept one another God will be glorified (rom 15:7).when we stand before the Lord to be judged, it will not be our brother's actions that will be asked about.we will be judged concerning our own we should be concerned to live rightly ourselves,not spend our time criticizing other people who has different views from us..always believe in what we call PERSONAL ACCOUNTABILITY.

People argue out of ignorance and wanting to be right about everything. We should learn to be respectful toward others and their opinions. Their wants and desires. If someone wants to eat turtle. Go ahead. Does not mean I have to. We can read our bibles more and do what God says to do about this. Read Romans chap 14 to begin with.

Days are important - Birthdays are important. Cake and candles are important.
But your right - Why argue?
For the kingdom of God is not food and drink but righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit.
For he who serves Christ in these things is acceptable to God and approved by men.
Therefore let us pursue the things which make for peace and the things by which one may edify the another.

Bloy, you are absolautely wrong..the o/t and n/t cannot go without the other. John 1:1,2,3, In the begininng was the word, and the word was with God, AND THE WORD WAS GOD. Jesus is the word so you cant have half of Jesus gotta have the whole lot. The bible is all about Jesus boy...for He is the Word...

Eloy: 1 Cor 6:19-20 reads:"What, don't you know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit...therefore glorify God in your body."
1 Cor 3:17 "If any man defiles the temple...him shall God destroy..."
1 Cor 10:31 " Therefore, whether you eat, drink or whatever you do. do all to the glory of God!
NB. Notice we are not told be careful in one place/time and not not careful in another place/time!
His council crosses the OT vs NT boundry!

Eloy: You know there is no such "beast" buy you have it your way!
---Pierr7958 on 9/13/05

Pierr, you obey the O.T. moral laws, and i obey the N.T. moral laws. You cannot serve both the letter of the law, and the spirit of grace; you cannot serve two masters. The only dietary laws ordered in the N.T., and nothing more than this: are to abstain from things offered to idols, bloody meat, and from things strangled. Please read Acts 15:19-29.
---Eloy on 9/13/05

Hebrews 4:7 There for God again set a certain day, calling it Today. (by this whole chap where do you get Sat or Sun) isn't it fair to say both days are fine as long as God is the center of it? Rom 14:5-6. What does Gal 4:21-31, 5:1, Coloss 2:16-17
---Judit4846 on 9/12/05

In your blog you generally have the right idea BUT ONCE AGAIN THE WRONG LAWS.
In this passage we see the Jews pervert the truth by trying to get the Galatians to revert to the observation of the ORDINANCES/ceremonial laws (please read it again) with its feast days, circumscision and sabbaths. Doing this would have been equal to devaluing completely Christ's sacrifice THEY ARE NOT ENCOURAGED TO DISOBEY GOD'S MORAL LAW! NEVER! They are counciled not to revert to CEREMONIAL LAWS.
---Pierr7958 on 9/12/05

Chera: You seem to agree that dietary laws MAKE SENSE, are good for our health but we don't need to follow them !? How come then we are counciled to eat, drink to the glory of God? How do you reconcile the two?
You also write that the Lord is Lord of the Sabbath. What does that mean? and which day is He Lord of Saturday or Sunday?
---Pierr7958 on 9/12/05

Amen Chera. God bless you richly. Too many christians after they get saved, are deceived into serving the O.T.laws again, just like the Galatians did. They got saved by Paul's preaching, but then they were persuaded to serve the O.T. again, and keep the sabbath, and get circumcised, etc. And if one does this, then they are no longer saved, but have fallen from grace, for a little leaven will leaven the whole lump. Please read Galatians 4:9 thru 5:9.
---Eloy on 9/12/05

All things are permissable, but not all things are profitable. Some of the dietary laws make sense from a wellness perspective, but we are under no obligation to them. As far as days, I am with Eloy on this. Jesus is the Lord of the Sabboth 24/7.
---chera on 9/11/05

Next, Eloy applies the same idea to the day of rest that God set aside in the Moral Law. Jesus and his word are for ever and every day we should walk closely with God but we should also be honest enough to reconize that all days are not the same when it comes to worshipping Him!
---Pierr7958 on 9/11/05

I do have to respectfully disagree with Eloy. He makes it sound like all restrictive laws are OTlaws and now that we live in NT time we can now eat whatever we want. ThaBt is not true. The Bible tells us that our bodies + minds are the temple of God, therefore we should still honor Him by what we eat and drink and still avoid what is harmful and be temperate with that which is good.

---Pierr7958 on 9/11/05

Judit--It's because those are the MAJOR beliefs of people who argue for them. Some of the churches which teach them actually began as false religions! But there are now enough 'real Believers' (even pastors) in some of those churches, that they've become more Biblical, yet those who've not been truly saved, or know little of the Word are still going to argue for those doctrines. I wouldn't literally "fight" over it, but God does want us to point out Scriptural truths!
---Daniel on 9/11/05

The O.T. had many dietary laws to follow, the N.T. supercedes all these and gives us grace and liberty to eat anything (within reason, for ex: you wouldn't eat a sneaker). God looks upon the heart, whether it is right with him or not, and not what you eat. The same judgement goes for regarding certain days as special, when we are saved, every single day is special and spent with God. We are with him 24/7, and not once a week on a sabbath nor only once a week in a church, instead we worship him daily.

We shouldn't argue whom celebrates holidays or whom does not or whatever.First of all doing a google search on birthdays, it did originate with Pagan holidays. Yes early Christians might have celebrated birthdays,but not so in a manner as we celebrate them today, but let to himself decide what to eat or celebrate because debating over such matters will get noone anywhere.
---candice on 9/11/05

Some people out of religious pride start arguments about trivial things trying to do the work of the Holy Spirit in their flesh to convict others to follow them.

On the other side of the argument are the ones who see through it and seek to protect the liberty that Jesus gives us.

In the end sometimes conflict is unavoidable, trouble makers have to be surpressed or we'd all end up drinking cool aid in purple Nikes.
---Pharisee on 9/11/05

I believe there should never be "fighting" going on in regards to exploitng Bible truths. Let there be a solid exchange of views but without rancor or belittleling of the others!
