    Paul, after finishing his teaching on how to deal with disputable matters, tells us that we should accept one another just as Christ has accepted us.

    Giving up Freedom for Unity (Romans 15:1-7)

    For the sake of the unity of the Body of Christ, sometimes it becomes necessary to curtail our personal liberty for a weaker brother or sister. We are to bear their weaknesses and please them in order to edify or build them up in the faith.
