Romans 14:1-12

After telling his readers of the ethical behaviour expected of Christians, Paul counsels them with respect to conduct in the community.

Matthew 18:21-35

Jesus has told the disciples how the community is to discipline those who disrupt its harmony by going against God’s ways. But God is merciful, and so should we be.
