Christian Freedom and Responsibility

Am really loving doing my VETAMORPHUS readings at the moment, am finding the discipline and regularity quite helpful. A theme that has come up a bit lately for me (particularly through Romans 12 and 1 Corinthians 8 has been about the freedom we have as Christians in terms of a lot of our actions-we're not tied down by rules and regulations, but that whole Spiderman thing of 'with great power comes great responsibility' and how aware we need to be of the ramifications our actions can have on others.

And this is particularly true for those of us working with youth and young adults, such impressionable Christians! The one I am always challenged on is drinking, I know for me thatgenerally just having a few beers is not a bad thing, but for many others its a real stumbling block in their faith. Now thats a whole other issue in itself, but I know there's always areas of my life those chapters challenge, so thought I'd give you guys the heads up if you were short of something to read!
