Taking the Word to the World


The Bible presents general principles that permit us to determine the rightness or wrongness of actions (even those not mentioned in the Bible).

We can ask the following questions:

  1. “Can it be done for the glory of God? (1 Corinthians 10:31).
  2. Can it be done “in the name of the Lord Jesus” asking His blessing on the activity? (John 14:13).
  3. Can it be done while sincerely giving thanks to God?
  4. Is it a Christlike action? (1 John 2:6).
  5. Will it weaken the sincere convictions of other Christians? (1 Corinthians 8:10-11).
  6. Will it weaken my desire for spiritual things, God’s Word, and prayer? (Luke 8:14; Matthew 5:6).
  7. Will it weaken or hinder my witness for Christ? (Matthew 5:13-16)” (Author Unknown).
