The Meaning of Romans 14 Explained

Romans 14

[1] Him that is weak  in the faith  receive ye,  but  not  to  doubtful  disputations.  [2] For  one  believeth  that he may eat  all things:  another,  who is weak,  eateth  herbs.  [3] not  him that eateth  despise  him that eateth  not;  him which eateth  not  judge  him that eateth:  for  God  hath received  him.  [4] Who  thou  that judgest  another man's  servant?  to his own  master  he standeth  or  falleth.  Yea,  he shall be holden up:  for  him  stand.  [5] One  man  esteemeth  one day  above  another:  another  esteemeth  every  day  every man  be fully persuaded  in  his own  mind.  [6] He that regardeth  the day,  regardeth  it unto the Lord;  and  he that regardeth  not  the day,  to the Lord  not  regard  it. He that eateth,  to the Lord,  for  he giveth God  thanks;  and  he that eateth  not,  to the Lord  he eateth  not,  and  giveth God  thanks.  [7] For  none  liveth  to himself,  and  no man  dieth  to himself.  [8] For  whether  we live,  unto the Lord;  and whether  we die,  unto the Lord:  whether  we live  therefore,  or  die,  the Lord's.  [9] For  to  end Christ  both  died,  and  that  he might be Lord  both  of the dead  and  living.  [10] But  why  thou  judge  brother?  or  why  thou  set at nought  brother?  for  all  stand before  the judgment seat  [11] For  it is written,  As I  live,  saith  the Lord,  every  knee  shall bow  and  every  tongue  shall confess  to God.  [12] So  then  every one  shall give  account  of  himself  to God.  [13] not therefore  judge  one another  any more:  but  judge  rather,  that no man  put  a stumblingblock  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  of  itself:  to him that esteemeth  any thing  unclean,  to him  it is unclean.  [15] if  brother  be grieved  with  thy meat,  walkest thou  not  charitably.  Destroy  not  him  meat,  for  whom  Christ  died.  [16] not  then  good  be evil spoken of:  [17] For  the kingdom  of God  not  meat  and  drink;  but  righteousness,  and  peace,  and  joy  in  the Holy  Ghost.  [18] For  he that in  serveth  Christ  is acceptable  to God,  and  approved  of men.  [19] therefore  follow after  the things which make for  peace,  and  things wherewith  may edify  another.  [20] For  meat  destroy  not  the work  of God.  All things  indeed  are pure;  but  it is evil  for that man  who eateth  with  offence.  [21] It is good  neither  to eat  flesh,  nor  to drink  wine,  nor  any thing whereby  brother  stumbleth,  or  is offended,  or  is made weak.  [22] Hast  thou  faith?  have  it to  thyself  before  God.  Happy  is he that condemneth  not  himself  in  that thing which  he alloweth.  [23] And  he that doubteth  is damned  if  he eat,  because  he eateth not  of  faith:  for  whatsoever  is not  of  faith  sin.
