Much of the problems confronting us is because of our own problems with the doctrine we are faced with. For example, some believe that church officers are not to marry. However, Scripture doesn't teach that.

v3 Forbidding to marry, and commanding to abstain from meats, which God hath created to be received with thanksgiving of them which believe and know the truth.

Paul wrote that meats offered to idols are nothing in 1 Corinthians 8 ...

1 Now as touching things offered unto idols, we know that we all have knowledge. Knowledge puffeth up, but charity edifieth.

2 And if any man think that he knoweth any thing, he knoweth nothing yet as he ought to know.

3 But if any man love God, the same is known of him.

4 As concerning therefore the eating of those things that are offered in sacrifice unto idols, we know that an idol is nothing in the world, and that there is none other God but one.

...9 But take heed lest by any means this liberty of yours become a stumblingblock to them that are weak.

10 For if any man see thee which hast knowledge sit at meat in the idol's temple, shall not the conscience of him which is weak be emboldened to eat those things which are offered to idols;

11 And through thy knowledge shall the weak brother perish, for whom Christ died?

12 But when ye sin so against the brethren, and wound their weak conscience, ye sin against Christ.

13 Wherefore, if meat make my brother to offend, I will eat no flesh while the world standeth, lest I make my brother to offend.

We must be careful in our liberties as saints. Be joyful Brethren, for the joy of the LORD is our strength.

Merry Christmas and have a prosperous New Year; enjoy the food provided and blessed by our SAVIOR KING.

May our LORD GOD, continue to shine HIS glorious face on all on this forum.

Many have departed from the truth
