Part 11 of the Church in the World: Studies in 1 Corinthians – Where do we draw the lines? What is allowed and what isn’t? How do we deal with our differences? Christians of all ages have wrestled with these questions,  and the twin dangers of legalism and license are ever-present.  The Christian  ideal is set forth in a statement important in our EFCA heritage: “In essentials,  unity; in non-essentials, charity; and in all things, Jesus Christ.” In our pas­sage  this morning, Paul seeks to work this out in dealing with issues facing the Christians in Corinth. We will need to work them out in our culture as well.
