Principles of Conscience

1 Now accept R646 the one who is weak R647 in faith, but not for the purpose of passing judgment on his opinions. 2 One R648 person has faith that he may eat all things, but he who is weak R649 eats vegetables only. 3 The one who eats is not to regard R650 with contempt the one who does not eat, and the one who does not eat is not to judge R651 the one who eats, for God has accepted R652 him. 4 Who R653 are you to judge the servant F220 of another? To his own master F221 he stands or falls; and he will stand, for the Lord is able to make him stand.

5 One R654 person regards F222 one day above another, another regards every day alike. Each person must be fully R655 convinced in his own mind. 6 He who observes the day, observes it for the Lord, and he who eats, does F223 so for the Lord, for he gives R656 thanks to God; and he who eats not, for the Lord he does not eat, and gives thanks to God. 7 For not one of us lives R657 for himself, and not one dies for himself; 8 for if we live, we live for the Lord, or if we die, we die for the Lord; therefore whether R658 we live or die, we are the Lord's. 9 For to this end Christ R659 died and lived again, that He might be Lord R660 both of the dead and of the living.

10 But you, why do you judge your brother? Or you again, why do you regard R661 your brother with contempt? For we R662 will all stand before the judgment seat of God. 11 For it is written, "AS R663 I LIVE, SAYS THE LORD, EVERY R664 KNEE SHALL BOW TO ME, AND EVERY TONGUE SHALL GIVE F224 PRAISE TO GOD." 12 So then each R665 one of us will give an account of himself to God.

13 Therefore let us not judge R666 one another anymore, but rather determine this--not R667 to put an obstacle or a stumbling block in a brother's way. 14 I know and am convinced in F225 the Lord Jesus that nothing R668 is unclean in itself; but to him who thinks R669 anything to be unclean, to him it is unclean. 15 For if because of food your brother is hurt, you are no longer walking R670 according to love. Do R671 not destroy with your food him for whom Christ died. 16 Therefore do R672 not let what is for you a good thing be spoken F226 of as evil; 17 for the kingdom of God is R673 not eating and drinking, but righteousness and peace R674 and joy R674 in the Holy Spirit. 18 For he who in this way serves R675 Christ is acceptable R676 to God and approved by men. 19 So then we F227 pursue R677 the things which make for peace and the building R678 up of one another. 20 Do R679 not tear down the work of God for the sake of food. All R680 things indeed are clean, but they R681 are evil for the man who eats and F228 gives offense. 21 It R682 is good not to eat meat or to drink wine, or to do anything by which your brother stumbles. 22 The faith which you have, have as F229 your own conviction before God. Happy is he who does R683 not condemn himself in what he approves. 23 But he R684 who doubts is condemned if he eats, because his eating is not from faith; and whatever is not from faith is sin.
