Hechallenged them to stand up against the demandson them to conform to cultural/religious norms.

  10. 10. If someone falls into sin, forgivingly restore him, saving your critical comments for yourself. You might be needing forgiveness before the days out.For everything we know about Gods Word is summedup in a single sentence: Love others as you loveyourself. Thats an act of true freedom. If you bite andravage each other, watch out—in no time at all youwill be annihilating each other, and where will yourprecious freedom be then? (5:14-15) Loving Correction
