English Standard Version (ESV)
12 I wish those who unsettle you would emasculate themselves! 13 For you were called to freedom, brothers. Only do not use your freedom as an opportunity for the flesh, but through love serve one another. 14 For the whole law is fulfilled in one word: “You shall love your neighbor as yourself.”
If you are free in Christ, there is no need to justify…. unless you are guilty? You don’t need to defend yourself, you have a defender. Pray and think about if you are giving an reason to excuse your yourself/stance/whatever. If you are free, you are living a guilt free life led by The Holy Spirit. Use your freedom to lead others to The Cross, not to question your walk.
