Season after Pentecost (Proper 19 [24]): The Epistle Passage – Accepting weakness and differences

Welcome those who are weak in faith, but not for the purpose of quarreling over opinions.” (Romans 14:1)

The meaning of “weak” here is not weakness in the depth of their belief but the extent to which their faith is tied to outward signs and practices. Paul being Paul would not tolerate someone who was wishy-washy as to whether he/she believed in Jesus as God’s son and sent to atone for our sins.  .  .

About Carole Boshart

I have blog called "Pondering From the Pacific" and it is based on my reflections on the world - sometimes religious/spiritual, and sometimes not so much. Some days roll along smoothly and some days are like rocky shale. But always I cling to my faith . . . . and my sense of humor!
