Hi people!!!
So recently I had two christian friends debating about yoga. One said that yoga is from the root of hinduism. The other said that it can be done just as an exercise, if you dont care so much.
my stand? it is just an exercise.
This reminded me of something.
Paul said this:" that his faith gave him the liberty to enjoy the steak no matter where it had come from. He simple gave thanks for it and ate it. However, if he knew that a brother's faith was weak, or rather the brother's conscience was weak, he would not eat it, for the love of his brother. It is not for his sake, but his brother's sake." When you do what Paul did with weak faith, you feel guilty, thus you will be sinning, is not good.
This is because Romans 14 :23 says 'the man who has doubts is condemned if he eats, because his eating is not from faith, and everything that does not come from faith is sin.
that believer who saw Paul eating would have screamed out that the steak Paul is eating has an insignia of an IDOL!! 
But Paul says to eat whatever that is set before you, without asking questions for conscience sake. The thing however is that we should not try to live out of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil(which is our conscience, and the opposite of the tree of life therefore the tree of death).
Hope that all enjoyed the post! heehee:D
