Romanos 14

1 Accept the man who has a weak faith, but not to entertain doubtful thinking.

2 For one believes that he may eat all things. Another who is weak eats only vegetables.

3 Let the one eating not look down on the one not eating. Let the one who does not eat judge him that eats, for God has received him.

4 Who are you to judge another man’s servant? He stands or falls before his own master. Yes, he will be made to stand for God can make him stand.

5 One person judges one day above another. Another person judges every day alike. Let every man be fully persuaded in his own mind.

6 He who regards the day regards it to God and he who does not regard the day does not regard it to God. He, who eats, eats to God, for he gives God thanks. He who does not eat does not eat to God and he gives God thanks.

7 For none of us lives to himself, and no man dies to himself.

8 For if we live, we live to God and if we die, we die to God. Therefore should we live or die, we are God’s.

9 To this end Christ both died, and rose, and lived again, that he might be Lord both of the dead and the living.

10 Why do you judge your brother? Why do you look down on your brother with contempt? We will all stand before the judgment seat of God Theos.

11 It is written: As I live, says Jehovah, every knee will bow to me, and every tongue will acknowledge confess to Jehovah. (Isaiah 45:23)

12 So then every one of us will give account of himself to God.

13 Let us not judge one another any more. Let no man put a stumbling block or an occasion to fall in his brother’s way.

14 I know, and am persuaded by the Lord Jesus, that there is nothing unclean in itself. If someone thinks something is unclean it is unclean to him.

15 If because of your food your brother is grieved, you do not walk in love. Do not allow what you eat to destroy the one for whom Christ died.

16 Do not let the good you do be spoken of as evil.

17 For the kingdom of God is not food and drink; but righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit.

18 For he that serves Christ is acceptable to God, and approved of by men.

19 Let us follow after the things that make for peace, and things that are encouraging to one another.

20 Do not tear down the work of God for the sake of food. All things indeed are pure; but it is evil for that man who eats with offense.

21 It is good neither to eat food, nor to drink wine, nor any thing that causes your brother to stumble or be offended and weakened.

22 Do you have faith? Have it for yourself before God. Happy is he who does not condemn himself in that thing that he allows.

23 He that doubts is damned if he eats, because he eats not by faith. Whatever is not by faith is sin!
