This thread is going to be about, “Growing in the faith”:
And the ways the Bible describes this growth!

One way “Spiritual Growth” is described in the Bible, is with food....
Can you eat.... MILK or BREAD or STRONG MEAT!

And with this in mind......  Notice what Hebrews 5:14 has to say....
“But strong meat belongeth to them that are of full age, [even] those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil.”
As you can see, “Growing in the faith”, can be done by “exercising our senses”!
Those things you “see”, “hear”, “taste” or “touch”...... “to discern both good and evil.”

In other words: Allow yourself to EXPERIENCE some questionable things:
(And allow God’s Holy Spirit, to let you know what is good and what is evil:)
   -In stead of just following somebodies opinion!-
NOTE: One reason you don’t hear too much about this, is because of God’s warning in
Romans 14:, about being careful not to.... “put a stumblingblock” in your brothers way.

For instance: If a fellow Christian, thinks that....
                                                 “it is wrong to sleep on the left side of the bed:”
Than we should be careful..... not to do this in front of them!
(Because....  “if they think it is sin”..... “it is sin, to them”!)

But.... any Christian who STUDIES Romans 14:... Can GROW out of this foolishness!
AND: A big reason this subject needs to be addressed........
    is because of the Lord’s warnings in Mark 7:7 ....  et.al.
“Howbeit in vain do they worship me,
 teaching [for] doctrines the commandments of men.”

It is very dangerous, to make “an opinion someone has”, a DOCTRINE you teach!
  (It will make your worship of the LORD, an “empty practice of religion”!)
And you won’t grow in the Faith!
