1 Corinthians 919Though I am free and belong to no man, I make myself a slave to everyone, to win as many as possible. 20To the Jews I became like a Jew, to win the Jews. To those under the law I became like one under the law (though I myself am not under the law), so as to win those under the law. 21To those not having the law I became like one not having the law (though I am not free from Gods law but am under Christs law), so as to win those not having the law. 22To the weak I became weak, to win the weak. I have become all things to all men so that by all possible means I might save some. 23I do all this for the sake of the gospel, that I may share in its blessings.Culturally Appropriate
1 Corinthians 7:17-24
Nevertheless, each one should retain the place in life that the Lord assigned to him and to which God has called him. This is the rule I lay down in all the churches. Was a man already circumcised when he was called? He should not become uncircumcised. Was a man uncircumcised when he was called? He should not be circumcised. Circumcision is nothing and uncircumcision is nothing. Keeping Gods commands is what counts. Each one should remain in the situation which he was in when God called him. Were you a slave when you were called? Dont let it trouble youalthough if you can gain your freedom, do so. For he who was a slave when he was called by the Lord is the Lords freedman; similarly, he who was a free man when he was called is Christs slave. You were bought at a price; do not become slaves of men. Brothers, each man, as responsible to God, should remain in the situation God called him to. Culturally Appropriate
Matthew 238But you are not to be called Rabbi, for you have only one Master and you are all brothers. 9And do not call anyone on earth father, for you have one Father, and he is in heaven. 10Nor are you to be called teacher, for you have one Teacher, the Christ. 11The greatest among you will be your servant. 12For whoever exalts himself will be humbled, and whoever humbles himself will be exalted.13Woe to you, teachers of the law and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You shut the kingdom of heaven in mens faces. You yourselves do not enter, nor will you let those enter who are trying to.15Woe to you, teachers of the law and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You travel over land and sea to win a single convert, and when he becomes one, you make him twice as much a son of hell as you are.Culturally Appropriate
Amos 521I hate, I despise your religious feasts;I cannot stand your assemblies.22Even though you bring me burnt offerings and grain offerings,I will not accept them.Though you bring choice fellowship offerings,I will have no regard for them.23Away with the noise of your songs!I will not listen to the music of your harps.24But let justice roll on like a river,righteousness like a never-failing stream!Culturally Appropriate
