Good Questions When Considering "Gray" Areas of Christian Morality

1. Is it beneficial to me personally and to the gospel?
2. Will I lose self-control and be mastered by what I participate in?
3. Will I be doing this in the presence of someone who I know will fall into sin as a result?
4. Is it a violation of the laws of my city, state, or nation?
5. If I fail to do this, will I lose opportunities to share the gospel?
6. Can I do this with a clear conscience?
7. Will this cause me to sin by feeding my sinful desires?
8. Am I convinced that this is what God desires me to do?
9. Does my participation proceed from faith in Jesus Christ?
10. Am I doing this to help other people, or am I just being selfish?
11. Can I do this in a way that glorifies God?
12. Am I following the example of Jesus Christ to help save sinners?
