But that's such a simplistic and incomplete way of looking at it, and why Christians have an 'anything goes" attitude about their walk. In fact, many of the verses about about Christian liberty specifically have to do with being liberated from the law and traditions of Judaism: 2Cor 3:17; Gal 2:4; Gal 5:1; Gal 5:13; James 2:12, et al.
and after traditions of men colossians 2:8 Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ.
But otherwise, as far as things not forbidden, again, even in those we are expected to use discernment to set limitations for ourselves, (not necessarily others) in when, or if, to use our liberty.
And it is up to the individual to make that decision, it basically a Romans 14 issue
For instance, meth use if not forbidden in the Bible. So, do we have liberty to use it? Well, some might say yes, however, when we consider "Al things are lawful for me but I wil not be brought under the power of any", clearly, then, such things would be beyond the bounds of what we should do. When it has no intrinsic value .yes
Of course, there are those who would say that meth use falls under the command not to do things to destroy the temple of God, our body, and I would agree, but then, we'd better be looking carefully at EVERYTHING we put into our temples if we will follow that line of thinking, for most of what people eat today is clearly damaging to the temple, what with GMO foods, refined carbs, high fructose corn syrup, MSG, boxed foods, soda pop, energy drinks, vccinations with thimerisol, fillings with mercury. A majority of the junk put into our bodies today is damaging to it, so if we will ust go gainst things like meth and heroin and such because of the damage, we'd best be prepared to make big changes in our ;liberties; in these areas, as well.and some things we just cant get away from, we all dont live on a farm
As I said before, our liberties MUST be tempered by asking ourselves: Is it expedient? (will it help me in more efficiently pleasing and glorifying God, winning the lost, and NOT giving offense to the saved OR the lost-1Cor 10:31-33)? Does it edify others? Might I be brought under the power of it? also Christians who dont practice liberty are not to judge those who do and then claim " weaker brother" all the time to control others, because they fall into a trap also
Romans 14: Him that is weak in the faith receive ye, but not to doubtful disputations.
2 For one believeth that he may eat all things: another, who is weak, eateth herbs.
3 Let not him that eateth despise him that eateth not; and let not him which eateth not judge him that eateth: for God hath received him.
4 Who art thou that judgest another man's servant? to his own master he standeth or falleth. Yea, he shall be holden up: for God is able to make him stand.
5 One man esteemeth one day above another: another esteemeth every day alike. Let every man be fully persuaded in his own mind.
1 Tim 4: Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils;
2 Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron;
3 Forbidding to marry, and commanding to abstain from meats, which God hath created to be received with thanksgiving of them which believe and know the truth.
4 For every creature of God is good, and nothing to be refused, if it be received with thanksgiving:
5 For it is sanctified by the word of God and prayer.
