Important First Steps

Often when we are faced with a serious question we are tempted to just forget it and go on to the next distraction in our lives, or to jump on the first easy answer, or to charge forward tearing Bible verses out of context and setting them against each other.  But God would have us to love Him with all our minds, and to be patient and self-controlled in the pursuit of truth, and one of the most important things to do at the outset of an inquiry is to define our terms.  The two key terms to define in this question are “Custom” and “Principle”, in this video R.C. helps us with some clear definitions.

But we must never forget that proverb, “A little knowledge is a dangerous thing.”  So we would be wise to head this word of caution also.
