We tend to think about people searing their conscience when they go into sins: like lust, drunkenness and so on. However, in 1 Timothy 4 Paul‚Äôs concern is with them searing their conscience through legalism. People were forbidding marriage and eating of certain foods, and in doing so were searing their consciences. When you get a zeal for the Lord it is very easy for Satan to high jack that with a ‚Äúdo not taste, do not touch‚ÄĚ mentality. Do you have a good or seared conscience? Are your convictions based upon what the Scripture teaches?
Good Sermon! Good sermon overall but he is very irresponsible and Ill informed about the detrimental effects of eating McDonald's. He called mum's good mum's who gave their children happy meals. And he was too compromising on other moral issues too.
