Romans 14:1 Hym that is weake in the fayth, receaue, not in disputynge and troublynge hys conscience. Romans 14:2 One beleueth that he maye eate all thynge. Another whych is weake, eateth earbes.
Men may not contemn nor condemn one the other for things different:
Romans 14:3 Let not hym that eateth, despise hym þt eateth not. And let not him whych eateth not, iudge him þt eateth. For God hath receaued him. Romans 14:4 What art þu þt iudgest another mannes seruaunt whether he stande or fall þt pertayneth vnto hys awne master: ye, he shall be holden vp, that he maye stande. For God is able to make hym stande. Romans 14:5 This man putteth difference bitwene daye & daye. Another man counteth all dayes alyke. Let euery mans mynde satisfye him selfe. Romans 14:6 He that obserueth the daye, doeth it vnto the Lorde. And he that doth not obserue the daye, doeth it for the Lorde also. He that eateth, doth it to please the Lorde, for he geueth God thankes. Romans 14:7 And he that eateth not, eateth not, to please the Lorde withall, and geueth God thankes. Romans 14:8 For none of vs lyueth for hym selfe, and no man dyeth for hym selfe. For yf we lyue, we lyue vnto the Lorde. And yf we dye, we dye vnto the Lord. Whether we lyue therfore, or dye, we are the Lordes. Romans 14:9 For Christ therfore dyed, and rose agayne, and reuyued, that he myght be Lorde of deed and quycke. Romans 14:10 But why doest thou then iudge thy brother? Other, why doest thou despise thy brother? We shalbe all brought before the iudgement seate of Christ. Romans 14:11 For it is written: as truely as I lyue sayth the Lorde: all knees shall bowe to me, and all tonges shall geue prayse to God. Romans 14:12 So shall euery one of vs geue accomptes of hym selfe to God.
but take heed that they give no offence in them:
Romans 14:13 Let vs not therfore iudge one another eny more. But iudge thys rather, that no man put a stomblynge blocke, or an occasyon to fall in hys brothers waye. Romans 14:14 For I knowe, and am full certifyed by the Lorde Iesus, that ther is nothynge comen of it selfe: but vnto hym that iudgeth it to be comen: to hym is it comen.
for that the apostle proveth unlawful by many reasons.
Romans 14:15 If thy brother be greued wyth thy meate, nowe walkest thou not charitablye. Destroye not hym wyth thy meate, for whom Chryst dyed. Romans 14:16 Cause not youre treasure to be euyll spoken of. Romans 14:17 For the kyngdome of God is not meate and drynke: but ryghtwesnes, and peace and ioye in the holy ghost. Romans 14:18 For he that in these thinges serueth Chryst, pleaseth God, and is commended of men. Romans 14:19 Let vs therfore folowe those thinges which make for peace, and thynges wherwith one maye edifye another. Romans 14:20 Destroye not the worke of God for a lytell meates sake. All thinges are pure: but it is euyll for þe man: which eateth wyth hurte of conscience. Romans 14:21 It is good nether to eate flesshe, nether to drinke wyne nether eny thynge, wherby thy brother stombleth, ether falleth, or is made weake. Romans 14:22 Hast þu fayth? haue it wyth thy selfe before God. Happy is he, that condempneth not hym selfe, in the thynge whych he aloweth. Romans 14:23 For he that maketh conscience, is dampned yf he eate: because he eateth not of fayth. For whatsoeuer is not of fayth, that same is synne.
