The Epistle of Paul to the Romans

14: 1But him that is weak in faith receive ye, yet not for decision of scruples. 14:2One man hath faith to eat all things: but he that is weak eateth herbs. 14:3Let not him that eateth set at nought him that eateth not; and let not him that eateth not judge him that eateth: for God hath received him. 14:4Who art thou that judgest the servant of another? to his own lord he standeth or falleth. Yea, he shall be made to stand; for the Lord hath power to make him stand. 14:5One man esteemeth one day above another: another esteemeth every day alike. Let each man be fully assured in his own mind. 14:6He that regardeth the day, regardeth it unto the Lord: and he that eateth, eateth unto the Lord, for he giveth God thanks; and he that eateth not, unto the Lord he eateth not, and giveth God thanks. 14:7For none of us liveth to himself, and none dieth to himself. 14:8For whether we live, we live unto the Lord; or whether we die, we die unto the Lord: whether we live therefore, or die, we are the Lord's. 14:9For to this end Christ died and lived again, that he might be Lord of both the dead and the living. 14:10But thou, why dost thou judge thy brother? or thou again, why dost thou set at nought thy brother? for we shall all stand before the judgment-seat of God. 14:11For it is written,

 As I live, saith the Lord, to me every knee shall bow,

 And every tongue shall confess to God.

14:12So then each one of us shall give account of himself to God. 14:13Let us not therefore judge one another any more: but judge ye this rather, that no man put a stumblingblock in his brother's way, or an occasion of falling. 14:14I know, and am persuaded in the Lord Jesus, that nothing is unclean of itself: save that to him who accounteth anything to be unclean, to him it is unclean. 14:15For if because of meat thy brother is grieved, thou walkest no longer in love. Destroy not with thy meat him for whom Christ died. 14:16Let not then your good be evil spoken of: 14:17for the kingdom of God is not eating and drinking, but righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit. 14:18For he that herein serveth Christ is well-pleasing to God, and approved of men. 14:19So then let us follow after things which make for peace, and things whereby we may edify one another. 14:20Overthrow not for meat's sake the work of God. All things indeed are clean; howbeit it is evil for that man who eateth with offence. 14:21It is good not to eat flesh, nor to drink wine, nor to do anything whereby thy brother stumbleth. 14:22The faith which thou hast, have thou to thyself before God. Happy is he that judgeth not himself in that which he approveth. 14:23But he that doubteth is condemned if he eat, because he eateth not of faith; and whatsoever is not of faith is sin.
