There are some issues on which compromise is impossible. For example, Paul says in Galatians 1 that if anyone preaches a false gospel he is to be accursed.
On the other hand, there are many issues over which real Christians who believe the gospel and who hold to the infallible authority of Scripture disagree.
In the early church there were differences of opinon over issues of food, drink, and days.
The principles which Paul applies to the Romans also addresses some of the issues over which sincere believers disagree today.
We are to accept one another as Christ has accepted us, not judging each other on matters over which Christians differ.
Our shared ambition is to please and glorify our Lord.
