Wording of this Handout:
Who calls the shots?
Sometimes Christians have to say "no" to things, but when they are asked why they say "no," their answers are sometimes lacking!
For example, Christians are not allowed to swear, or gossip, or speak in a nasty way about others. Why?
A simple but direct answer is "Because I'm not allowed to!"
Who says we are not allowed to? God does, through his word.
If you friends have a problem with that, tell them to go talk to God about it.
LIfe is so much simpler now that I know what God likes me to do!
The Bible says "We are not our own bosses to live or die as we ourselves might choose."
(Romans 14:7 The Living Bible paraphrase)
