Romans, Chapter 14

14:1 But him who is weak in faith receive to yourselves, [yet] not for decision of scruples.
14:2 One man has faith to eat all things: but he who is weak eats herbs.
14:3 Don't let him who eats set at nothing him who does not eat; and don't let him who does not eat judge him who eats: for God has received him.
14:4 Who are you that judges the household slave of another? To his own lord he stands or falls. Yes, he will be made to stand; for the Lord has power to make him stand.
14:5 For one man esteems one day above another: another esteems every day [alike]. Let each be fully assured in his own mind.
14:6 He who regards the day, regards it to the Lord: and he who eats, eats to the Lord, for he gives God thanks; and he who does not eat, to the Lord he does not eat, and gives God thanks.
14:7 For none of us lives to himself, and none dies to himself.
14:8 For whether we live, we live to the Lord; or whether we die, we die to the Lord: whether we live therefore, or die, we are the Lord's.
14:9 For to this end Christ died and lived [again], that he might be Lord of both the dead and the living.
14:10 But you, why do you judge your brother? Or you again, why do you set at nothing your brother? For we will all stand before the judgment-seat of God.
14:11 For it is written, As I live, says the Lord, to me every knee will bow, And every tongue will confess to God.
14:12 So then each of us will give account of himself to God.
14:13 Let us not therefore judge one another anymore: but judge+ this rather, that no man put a stumbling block in his brother's way, or an occasion of falling.
14:14 I know, and am persuaded in the Lord Jesus, that nothing is common of itself: except that to him who accounts anything to be common, to him it is common.
14:15 For if because of meat your brother is grieved, you walk no longer in love. Don't destroy with your meat him for whom Christ died.
14:16 Don't let then your+ good be evil spoken of:
14:17 for the kingdom of God is not eating and drinking, but righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit.
14:18 For he who in this [way] is serving as a slave to Christ is well-pleasing to God, and approved of men.
14:19 So then let us follow after things which make for peace, and things by which we may edify one another.
14:20 Don't overthrow the work of God for meat's sake. All things indeed are clean; nevertheless it is evil for that man who eats with offense.
14:21 It is good not to eat flesh, nor to drink wine, nor [to do anything] by which your brother stumbles.
14:22 The faith which you have, you have to yourself before God. Happy is he who does not judge himself in that which he approves.
14:23 But he who doubts is condemned if he eats, because [he eats] not of faith; and whatever is not of faith is sin.
