They flaunted their freedom in such a way that they ended up harming other believers. The solution to the Corinthians’ problem was to combine their freedom with Christian love. Nothing that believers do should be done apart from love, and as the Apostle Paul shows us, mature believers must take care in exercising their liberty so that the church as a whole is built up in faith and love.
