The Weaker Brother Principle
Topic: New Testament Scripture: 1 Corinthians 8:1–8:13
Christian maturity is a journey not an event. We all progress at different rates because of our history, experience, circumstances or just simply our stubbornness and pride.
So, how do we relate to each other in the middle of this process?
If someone is new to following Jesus, how do we handle their immaturity?
The passage we are looking at this week says the answer involves laying down some of the rights and freedoms we have in the Gospel so that we don't cause a new Christian to stumble in their faith. It's a very real test of maturity.
