What about church suppers? Some church groups feel that it is wrong to have sandwiches in the basement of the church and others get quite happy over having a party in church. They have different standards of holiness. Our purpose in this study is not to lift up any standard of holiness, neither is it to down any.
"I know and am persuaded by the Lord Jesus, that there is nothing unclean of itself: but to him that esteemeth any thing to be unclean, to him it is unclean" (Rom. 14:14). Therefore if your leaders declare it is wrong -- it is wrong. If they say it is O.K. -- it is right. Church law has nothing to do with pleasing God. It has a lot to do with pleasing men. What many people refer to as "their standards of holiness" are not really laws of God --they are rules of men.
