Accomodation and 1 Corinthians 9:19-23

Tom Ascol gives a good overview of “accommodation” based on 1 Corinthians 9:19-23 at the Founders blog. All too often the idea of “accommodation” is either ignored or is defined by the worlds standards of “accommodating”. We need to seek after God’s standard of “accommodation” and not that of men. If we are to claim God’s word as our standard then God’s word needs to dictate how we relate to other believers and to the world. I know I need to constantly be aware of when I need to be more “accommodating” and when to stand firm and it is not easy to do if one has not come to an understanding of the whole issue before one is faced with a circumstance that may or may not necessitate “accommodation”.

I skimmed over Tom's post on Accomodation a week ago. But i returned too and read the whole thing.

Very helpful.
