In my previous posts I pointed out that Christians need to take into account the opinions of other believers in the lifestyle decisions we make. For instance, we should not purposefully drink in public when we know that another brother who does not believe in drinking is watching us. We should not knowing cause him concern.
Similarly, we need to be aware of and considerate of the beliefs of non-Christians too. I am not saying that we need to respect their false religions, but we do need to respect them as individuals, and treat them with dignity. We need to avoid doing things that we know will offend them:
Do not cause anyone to stumble, whether Jews, Greeks or the church of God— 33 even as I try to please everyone in every way. For I am not seeking my own good but the good of many, so that they may be saved (I Corinthians 10:32-33 NIV).
We Christians need to be peaceful and gentle towards others, so that we can convince them to be saved. For example, we should not deliberately serve pork to religious Jews, Muslims, or Hindus. Such an act would only cause a scene. If we love them, we will serve them food that their religion allows them to eat.
