Our culture has abandoned such concepts as duty and responsibility as antiquated Victorianism. But these are the virtues our text [1 Cor. 9:22-23] extols against an emphasis on “demands” and “rights.” Those who would use this passage to support libertarianism miss his point entirely. It is precisely because he was “all things to all men” that he would not participate with the pagans in their temples.
