Principles for Christian Conduct

Some decisions for Christian conduct are easily discerned by following clear, Biblical commands. We must obey the rules of God and not of man.

Also, we are called to evidence a distinctively Christian lifestyle in each generation. Accordingly, each community of Christians must speak to issues in their immediate culture and time in history. Any limitation of Christian liberties must be humbly based on Biblical principles and consistent with Biblical truth.

Acts 15 is an example of cultural differences that prompted much discussion and Biblical study before decisions were made by the spiritual leaders. Once decided, the community of believers committed to cooperation in their daily conduct.

But, beyond Biblical commands and community standards, we must be prepared to pursue personal convictions for our own Christian conduct, based on Biblical principles. Ask yourself, “What Would Jesus Do?”
