This was the question discussed in a recent group of people...Christian people. The general consensus was no, Christians cannot live however they want.
That got me to thinking about my last 19 years as a Christian. Have I really spent those years not living the way I wanted? What have I been missing?
While I understand that temptation and the pull of the human flesh are real, I think this question suggests that Christians have to live by a code that goes against all that they want to do. I think this is simply false. The Bible says that Christ's commandments are not difficult for us. We love to do His will because we love Him!
So, I believe that Christians can do whatever they want because a genuine Christian will only want to do the perfect will of God. When he is tempted away from that will, his love for his Savior will be stronger than the temptation because of a carefully preserved relationship with Him.
What do you think?
