14:3 The one who eats must not look down on the one who does not; conversely, the one who does not eat must not look down on the one who does, for God has accepted them.

14:9 Because the Anointed died and lives, he is Master of both the dead and the living.

14:10 So why do you judge your brother or sister? Why do you look down on them? All of us will someday stand before the judgment seat of the Anointed,

14:11 for it is written: “ ‘As I live,’ says the Master, ‘Every knee will bow to me, and every tongue will acknowledge God!’ ”

14:13 in no way should we be judging each other’s personal convictions. Be resolved not to put any stumbling block or trap in front of a sister or brother.

14:14 I know and am convinced in Master Jesus that nothing is inherently forbidden for us to eat. But to the one who thinks it is, then for that person it really is.

14:15 So if, by your eating, your brother or sister is grieved, you are no longer keeping in step with love. Do not use what you eat to destroy that one for whom the Anointed died!

14:20 Do not demolish the work of God on account of food! All of it is “clean” but it becomes evil to the one who, seeing the freedom of others, violates their own conscience and eats it.
