That doesn`t mean your conscience is always right. It is wise to calibrate your consciousness so that it better corresponds to God`s will. But this means that one cannot be constantly against one`s conscience and be a healthy Christian. You must be fully convinced of your current position on food or drink or special days – or whatever the problem – and then live from that decision consistently until God, through his word and mind, can lead you to adapt to your consciousness. For I fear that at my next moment I may find that you are not what I desire, and that you may not be found by you, not to be what you want; that there may be quarrels, jealousy, furious spirits, quarrels, caloges, gossip, arrogance, troubles; But avoid senseless controversies and genealogies, quarrels and quarrels over the law, because they are not profitable and worthless. Refuse a de facto man after a first and second warning, knowing that such a man is perverse and sins, condemns himself. Paul cites two reasons why it is so serious to break these two principles, that is, that the strong look down at those who have a weaker conscience, and that the weak judge those who have a stronger conscience: 18. When the Lord rejoices in everyone`s way, he pushes his enemies to make peace with them. 16:7 I appreciated my friend Angela`s response to an article I wrote about another friend being harassed for attending the President`s inauguration. Angela said, “I am a Democrat, but I have no problem saying that we have lost and that Donald Trump is the President of the United States. It`s just the facts. You have to respect the fact that it is received. But we believe that we will be saved by the grace of the Lord Jesus, as they are. All the people were silent, and they listened to Barnabas and Paul, talking about the miracles and miracles God had done by them among the nations. After they had stopped speaking, James replied: “My brothers, listen to me.

Simeon recounted how God first took care of taking a pagan people for his name. Likewise, husbands, live with your wives in an understanding manner, show the honor of the woman as the weakest ship, for they are heirs with you to the grace of life, so that your prayers are not hindered. That is why I invite you, prisoner of the Lord, to walk in a manner worthy of the vocation to which you are called, with all humility and gentleness, with the patience that is carried in love and which strives to preserve the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace. There is a body and a spirit – as you have been called to the one hope that belongs to your call – a Lord, a faith, a baptism, to carry one another and, if one has a complaint against the other, to forgive each other; As the Lord has forgiven you, you must forgive. Out of insolence, there are only quarrels, but with those who take advice, it is wisdom. We disagree because we want the other person to recognize that we are right. Sometimes we care more about being right than about “our truth” helping the other. If your brother opposes you, go and tell him his guilt, between you and him alone. If he listens to you, you`ve won your brother. But if he does not listen, take one or two more to have each charge determined by the evidence of two or three witnesses. If he refuses to listen to them, tell the Church. And if he refuses to listen to the Church, let him be yours as a non-Jew and customs officer.

After a few days, Paul said to Barnabas: Let us return to see the brethren in every city where we have announced the word of the Lord, and let us see what they are. Barnabas also wanted to take John, named Mark.
