Here we are nineteen centuries after Paul wrote his epistle to the Romans. May Christians now eat meat offered to idols without offending anybody? What if we wanted to have a glass of wine with that meal? Should we abstain if another Christian has scruples about that? How far should you go not to offend? Considering these thoughts in this message, Dr. Sproul teaches us the biblical principles on how to enjoy our Christian liberty without offending the weaker brother.
What exactly is the conscience? Many would describe it as a God-given inner-voice that lets us know when we are doing something wrong. Some modern thinkers have called it an evolutionary defect—a sort of a misinformed internal tyrant that we must learn to overcome. Whatever it is, we all have one. But are all consciences created equal? Do consciences inform us or do we inform them? Dr. Sproul gives us insight into these questions as he considers “The Question of Conscience.”
