What Does It Mean To Become All Things To All People?!?!?!


This is an interesting question when one considers the times we are living in. Paul said in 1 Corinthians 9:22, “I have become all things to all people, that by all means, I might save some.” If this statement is taken all by itself, it seems to imply Paul was willing to do anything to reach the lost. It would also seem to justify Christians living worldly lifestyles, as long as their goal is to “save” someone. Is this true? Should we be willing to become ALL things? Would a Christian be justified in doing drugs to reach people on drugs? Would a Christian be justified in using profanity and crass slang to “speak” to today’s youth? Would a Christian be justified in dressing provocatively because that’s how people in our culture dress?
How about this one, I recently heard someone pose the question, would a Christian be justified in becoming a HOMOSEXUAL to reach out to people in the GAY community? Thoughts??

  1. I recently heard someone pose the question, would a Christian be justified in becoming a HOMOSEXUAL to reach out to people in the GAY community?

    ANSWER: ". But shun profane and vain babblings: for they will increase unto more ungodliness."

    ANSWER: " And, Let every one that nameth the name of Christ depart from iniquity."

    ANSWER:"But foolish and unlearned questions avoid, knowing that they do gender strifes."

  2. You do not have to participate in sin to be all things to people. I believe Paul is telling us that he was a willing servant to all people, despite whatever privileges he had. Christians must be servants to all people: the disabled, the surfer dude, the gangsta, the rich, the beautiful, the unattractive, the valley girl, etc. The object is to make new believers in Christ and that our sins are forgiven through His blood..

  5. First, why is homosexuality THE ONLY SIN the church loves to preach against?
    How about masturbation? adultery? fornication? divorce?
    All these are sexual sins that the church seems to condone.
    However, to this question you DO NOT need to dabble in sin in order to help someone overcome but it can be limited if you don't have any knowledge in what you are speaking about.
    We have people who want to preach things they don't have a clue which makes their messages more judgmental and condemning than inviting and open.
    People are out here suffering and just want to know that someone cares. Some church folk have been saved so long they have no feelings and are unable to those who actually need help.
    I know. I been there. I can honestly say I am going through a very rough time and people telling me, "God is going to bless you...", "Keep praying...", "God can do it..." only lasts for so long before you feel like you being played out.

    Jesus touched people where they were.
    Learn from Him.

  6. Paul was encouraging the Corinthian church to meet people where they are in secular sociey. He was not giving Christians justification to be worldly. He wanted them to have the attitude of a servant and engage them in the things of God.
