The church in Rome faced a problem. Some felt it was perfectly okay to eat all types of food - including meat. Some were convinced that it was only safe to eat vegetables. With these differing convictions, the battle lines were drawn.
What do we do when our convictions lead us to different positions? It's a question that has plagued the church (and all people) since the beginning of time. In our passage today, Paul provides wisdom that points to a way forward.
