Bikinis and Bibles – 1st Corinthians 8 & 10:23-11:1

5 Jun

Last week I introduced The Great Bikini Debate and Professional Weaker Brothers.  I never imagined I’d be preaching a sermon which featured bikinis.  But this past Sunday that’s exactly what happened.  Bibles and Bikinis.  Think they don’t go together?  Think they shouldn’t go together?  I envisioned a scenario where those two things might go together.  I also envision a very disagreeable response to that scenario!

So we had a great discussion about this after worship on Sunday.  If you weren’t there I wish you could have been.  What we talked about was how many things Christians disagree about, and what we are supposed to do when we disagree.  I hope I conveyed Paul’s teaching from 1 Corinthians 8 & 10 clearly enough to give the principle that Paul teaches Christians who disagree.

So what about bikinis?  Should you or shouldn’t you? Won’t bikini-wearers be stumbling blocks?

Are you a Professional Weaker Brother?  Should you be?  How can you change?

If you’d like we can continue the discussion here.  Feel free to comment below!
