Romans 14:1 And him who is weak in the faith receive yenot to determinations of reasonings; Romans 14:2 one doth believe that he may eat all thingsand he who is weak doth eat herbs;
Men may not contemn nor condemn one the other for things different:
Romans 14:3 let not him who is eating despise him who is not eating: and let not him who is not eating judge him who is eating, for God did receive him. Romans 14:4 Thouwho art thou that art judging another's domestic? to his own master he doth stand or fall; and he shall be made to stand, for God is able to make him stand. Romans 14:5 One doth judge one day above another, and another doth judge every day [alike]; let each in his own mind be fully assured. Romans 14:6 He who is regarding the day, to the Lord he doth regard [it], and he who is not regarding the day, to the Lord he doth not regard [it]. He who is eating, to the Lord he doth eat, for he doth give thanks to God; and he who is not eating, to the Lord he doth not eat, and doth give thanks to God. Romans 14:7 For none of us to himself doth live, and none to himself doth die; Romans 14:8 for both, if we may live, to the Lord we live; if also we may die, to the Lord we die; both then if we may live, also if we may die, we are the Lord's; Romans 14:9 for because of this Christ both died and rose again, and lived again, that both of dead and of living he may be Lord. Romans 14:10 And thou, why dost thou judge thy brother? or again, thou, why dost thou set at nought thy brother? for we shall all stand at the tribunal of the Christ; Romans 14:11 for it hath been written, 'I live! saith the Lordto Me bow shall every knee, and every tongue shall confess to God;' Romans 14:12 so, then, each of us concerning himself shall give reckoning to God;
but take heed that they give no offence in them:
Romans 14:13 no longer, therefore, may we judge one another, but this judge ye rather, not to put a stumbling-stone before the brother, or an offence. Romans 14:14 I have known, and am persuaded, in the Lord Jesus, that nothing [is] unclean of itself, except to him who is reckoning anything to be uncleanto that one [it is] unclean;
for that the apostle proveth unlawful by many reasons.
Romans 14:15 and if through victuals thy brother is grieved, no more dost thou walk according to love; do not with thy victuals destroy that one for whom Christ died. Romans 14:16 Let not, then, your good be evil spoken of, Romans 14:17 for the reign of God is not eating and drinking, but righteousness, and peace, and joy in the Holy Spirit; Romans 14:18 for he who in these things is serving the Christ, [is] acceptable to God and approved of men. Romans 14:19 So, then, the things of peace may we pursue, and the things of building up one another; Romans 14:20 for the sake of victuals cast not down the work of God; all things, indeed, [are] pure, but evil [is] to the man who is eating through stumbling. Romans 14:21 Right [it is] not to eat flesh, nor to drink wine, nor to [do anything] in which thy brother doth stumble, or is made to fall, or is weak. Romans 14:22 Thou hast faith! to thyself have [it] before God; happy is he who is not judging himself in what he doth approve, Romans 14:23 and he who is making a difference, if he may eat, hath been condemned, because [it is] not of faith; and all that [is] not of faith is sin.
