Williams: Christian liberty

Thursday, April 16, 2015
    Make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace.
    —Ephesians 4:3 (NIV)
    Paul, in matters of Christian liberty, commendeth the unity of their faith in the Holy Spirit, giving order that we should not judge nor condemn one another, in difference of judgment and practice of such things where men live to God on both sides, even though there were some error on one side. How much less in things indifferent, where there may be no error on either side.
    ... Roger Williams (1603?-1683), The Bloudy Tenent [1644], London: J. Haddon, 1848, p. 224 (see the book)
    See also Eph. 4:3; Rom. 14:1-6,21; 1 Cor. 1:10; 12:12-13; Gal. 5:1; Col. 3:13-15
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, assist me to set aside all objections about style and superficialities.
