A second implication here, which we’re told directly, is not to put pressure on another believer to go against their conscience. If there’s an activity we recognize to be OK—it’s not harmful, not sinful. But if that activity pricks the conscience of my brother, the last thing I want to do is twist his arm to make him do something that violates his conscience. Even if, from my standpoint, it seems that his conscience is a bit confused, it’s still better for him to obey his conscience.
A similar thing could happen if we pressure others to go against their conscience. If we tell them, “Don’t listen to your conscience. Just listen to me.” That’s going to erode their ability to discern right and wrong. Instead, as Paul instructs in verse 22, “The faith that you have, keep between yourself and God.” It’s OK for you to exercise the freedom you recognize that you have. But don’t flaunt that before others. And definitely don’t try to coerce others to conform to your viewpoint.
