Last night I heard someone say,
“If what you want to do brings glory to God, then do it freely and with all your might. If what you want to do brings glory to yourself or others, then you probably shouldn’t be doing it.”
We were discussing Christian liberty and in particular those commonly held pet “sins” like drinking, smoking, and dancing.
I am not saying that any of those things are sin, but this is the context from which the original statement came.
Do you think the original statement is a good one, or is it overly simplistic?
Are we to do nothing in life for our own good pleasure?
Does this statement camouflage legalism?
