But beware lest somehow this liberty of yours become a stumbling block to those who are weak.

– 1 Corinthians 8:9

Among many Evangelical Christians, there has been a lot of discussion the last decade and a half, over issues of our liberty in Christ. Those that champion our liberty in Christ (and I firmly believe that the Biblical case for liberty is clearly evident) often push hard against the dangers of legalism. But, I have found that while there certainly is a danger of falling into the pit of legalism, there is quite certainly the danger of falling the other way into licentiousness.

We must recognize that there is a narrow path between these deep pits of licentiousness and legalism called the way of love. Tending toward the law can lead to pharisaical legalism; tending toward liberty may end in carnal licentiousness. The way of love is traveled with care and circumspection by the individual, who, with Christlike character, esteems others higher than him/herself.
