Romans 14:1-23, NLT
The Danger of Criticism
1Accept other believers who are weak in faith, and don’t argue with them about what they think is right or wrong.
5In the same way, some think one day is more holy than another day, while others think every day is alike. You should each be fully convinced that whichever day you choose is acceptable.
10So why do you condemn another believer*14:10 Greek your brother; also in 14:10b, 13, 15, 21.? Why do you look down on another believer? Remember, we will all stand before the judgment seat of God.
“‘As surely as I live,’ says the Lord,
‘every knee will bend to me,
and every tongue will declare allegiance to God.*14:11 Or declare praise for God. Isa 49:18; 45:23 (Greek version).’”
12Yes, each of us will give a personal account to God.
14I know and am convinced on the authority of the Lord Jesus that no food, in and of itself, is wrong to eat. But if someone believes it is wrong, then for that person it is wrong.
20Don’t tear apart the work of God over what you eat. Remember, all foods are acceptable, but it is wrong to eat something if it makes another person stumble.
