“Knowledge makes you arrogant but love edifies. If anyone supposes that he knows anything, he has not yet known as he ought to know” (1 Corinthians 8:1b-2).
The bible was never intended to be a religious rule book; offering a prescriptive response to any situation. Not all scenarios can be reduced to moral and immoral determinations. What Paul offers is a guideline for making decisions that reflect our understanding of what it is to be a covenant people. Instead of one’s personal rights it is driven by love for the brethren and the desire to see them built up and not torn down.
