- Him that is weak in the faith receive ye, but not to doubtful disputations.
- For one believeth that he may eat all things: another, who is weak, eat-eth herbs.
- Let not him that eateth despise him that eateth not; and let not him which eateth not judge him that eateth: for God hath received him
4. Who art thou that judgest another man’s servant? to his own master he standeth or falleth. Yea, he shall be holden up: for God is able to make him stand.
5. One man esteemeth one day above another: another esteemeth every day alike. Let 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; he doeth not regard it. He that eateth, 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 of us liveth to himself, and no man dieth to himself.
8. For whether we live, we live unto the Lord; and whether we die, we die unto the Lord: whether we live therefore, or die, we are the Lord’s
9. For to this end Christ both died, and rose, and revived, that he might be Lord both of the dead and living.
NOTE: These verses are from the King James Holy Bible
- Accept Christians who are weak in faith, and don’t argue with them about what they think is right or wrong.
- For instance, one person believes it is all right to eat anything. But another believer who has a sensitive conscience will eat only vegetables.
- Those who think it is all right to eat anything must not look down on those who won’t. And those who won’t eat certain foods must not condemn those who do, for God has accepted them.
- Who are you to condemn God’s servants? They are responsible to the Lord, so let him tell them whether they are right wrong. The Lord’s power will help them do as they should.
- In the same way, some think one day is more holy than another day, while others think every day is alike. Each person should have a personal conviction about this matter.
- Those who have a special day for worshiping the Lord are trying to honor him. Those who eat all kinds of food do so to honor the Lord, since they give thanks to God before eating. And those who won’t eat everything also want to please the Lord and give thanks to God.
- For we are not our own masters when we live or when we die.
- While we live, we live to please the Lord. And when we die, we go to be with the Lord. So in life and in death, we belong to the Lord.
- Christ died and rose again for this very purpose, so that he might be Lord of those who are alive and of those who have died.
