Romans Chapter 14
1 Him that is weak in the faith receive yebut not to doubtfuldisputations.
2 For one believeth that he may eat all thingsanotherwho isweakeateth herbs.
3 Let not him that eateth despise him that eateth notand letnot him which eateth not judge him that eatethfor God hathreceived him.
4 Who art thou that judgest another man s servantto his ownmaster he standeth or falleth. Yeahe shall be holden upforGod is able to make him stand.
5 One man esteemeth one day above anotheranother esteemethevery day alike. Let every man be fully persuaded in his ownmind.
6 He that regardeth the dayregardeth it unto the Lordand hethat regardeth not the dayto the Lord he doth not regard it.He that eatetheateth to the Lordfor he giveth God thanksand he that eateth notto the Lord he eateth notand givethGod thanks.
7 For none of us liveth to himselfand no man dieth to himself.
8 For whether we livewe live unto the Lordand whether wediewe die unto the Lordwhether we live thereforeor die we are the Lord s.
9 For to this end Christ both diedand roseand revivedthathe might be Lord both of the dead and living.
10 But why dost thou judge thy brotheror why dost thou set atnought thy brotherfor we shall all stand before the judgmentseat of Christ.
11 For it is writtenAs I livesaith the Lordevery knee shallbow to meand every tongue shall confess to God.
12 So then every one of us shall give account of himself to God.
13 Let us not therefore judge one another any morebut judgethis ratherthat no man put a stumblingblock or an occasionto fall in his brother s way.
14 I knowand am persuaded by the Lord Jesusthat there isnothing unclean of itselfbut to him that esteemeth any thingto be uncleanto him it is unclean.
15 But if thy brother be grieved with thy meatnow walkest thounot charitably. Destroy not him with thy meatfor whom Christdied.
16 Let not then your good be evil spoken of
17 For the kingdom of God is not meat and drinkbutrighteousnessand peaceand joy in the Holy Ghost.
18 For he that in these things serveth Christ is acceptable toGodand approved of men.
19 Let us therefore follow after the things which make for peaceand things wherewith one may edify another.
20 For meat destroy not the work of God. All things indeed arepurebut it is evil for that man who eateth with offence.
21 It is good neither to eat fleshnor to drink winenor anything whereby thy brother stumblethor is offendedor ismade weak.
22 Hast thou faithhave it to thyself before God. Happy is hethat condemneth not himself in that thing which he alloweth.
23 And he that doubteth is damned if he eatbecause he eatethnot of faithfor whatsoever is not of faith is sin.
