Romans 14

Romans 14:1 But him that is weak in faith receive ye, [yet] not for decision of scruples. Romans 14:2 One man hath faith to eat all things: but he that is weak eateth herbs.

Men may not contemn nor condemn one the other for things different:

Romans 14:3 Let not him that eateth set at nought him that eateth not; and let not him that eateth not judge him that eateth: for God hath received him. Romans 14:4 Who art thou that judgest the servant of another? to his own lord he standeth or falleth. Yea, he shall be made to stand; for the Lord hath power to make him stand. Romans 14:5 One man esteemeth one day above another: another esteemeth every day [alike]. Let each man be fully assured in his own mind. Romans 14:6 He that regardeth the day, regardeth it unto the Lord: and he that eateth, eateth unto the Lord, for he giveth God thanks; and he that eateth not, unto the Lord he eateth not, and giveth God thanks. Romans 14:7 For none of us liveth to himself, and none dieth to himself. Romans 14:8 For whether we live, we live unto the Lord; or whether we die, we die unto the Lord: whether we live therefore, or die, we are the Lord's. Romans 14:9 For to this end Christ died and lived [again], that he might be Lord of both the dead and the living. Romans 14:10 But thou, why dost thou judge thy brother? or thou again, why dost thou set at nought thy brother? for we shall all stand before the judgment-seat of God. Romans 14:11 For it is written, As I live, saith the Lord, to me every knee shall bow, And every tongue shall confess to God. Romans 14:12 So then each one of us shall give account of himself to God.

but take heed that they give no offence in them:

Romans 14:13 Let us not therefore judge one another any more: but judge ye this rather, that no man put a stumblingblock in his brother's way, or an occasion of falling. Romans 14:14 I know, and am persuaded in the Lord Jesus, that nothing is unclean of itself: save that to him who accounteth anything to be unclean, to him it is unclean.

for that the apostle proveth unlawful by many reasons.

Romans 14:15 For if because of meat thy brother is grieved, thou walkest no longer in love. Destroy not with thy meat him for whom Christ died. Romans 14:16 Let not then your good be evil spoken of: Romans 14:17 for the kingdom of God is not eating and drinking, but righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit. Romans 14:18 For he that herein serveth Christ is well-pleasing to God, and approved of men. Romans 14:19 So then let us follow after things which make for peace, and things whereby we may edify one another. Romans 14:20 Overthrow not for meat's sake the work of God. All things indeed are clean; howbeit it is evil for that man who eateth with offence. Romans 14:21 It is good not to eat flesh, nor to drink wine, nor [to do anything] whereby thy brother stumbleth. Romans 14:22 The faith which thou hast, have thou to thyself before God. Happy is he that judgeth not himself in that which he approveth. Romans 14:23 But he that doubteth is condemned if he eat, because [he eateth] not of faith; and whatsoever is not of faith is sin.
