kjv@Romans:14:1@ Him that is weak in the faith receive ye, but not to doubtful disputations.
kjv@Romans:14:2@ For one believeth that he may eat all things: another, who is weak, eateth herbs.
kjv@Romans:14:3@ 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.
kjv@Romans:14:4@ 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.
kjv@Romans:14:5@ One man esteemeth one day above another: another esteemeth every day alike. Let every man be fully persuaded in his own mind.
kjv@Romans:14:6@ He that regardeth the day, regardeth it unto the Lord; and he that regardeth not the day, to the Lord he doth 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.
kjv@Romans:14:7@ For none of us liveth to himself, and no man dieth to himself.
kjv@Romans:14:8@ 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.
kjv@Romans:14:9@ For to this end Christ both died, and rose, and revived, that he might be Lord both of the dead and living.
kjv@Romans:14:10@ But why dost thou judge thy brother? or why dost thou set at nought thy brother? for we shall all stand before the judgment seat of Christ.
kjv@Romans:14:11@ For it is written, As I live, saith the Lord, every knee shall bow to me, and every tongue shall confess to God.
Notice how this theme of the brethren and striving for the unity of the spirit ties in with what we just read in kjv@Romans:12. This teaching is a very practical way of considering the more general commands of 12.
What is not of faith is sin. Almost too bad this major universal truth is tagged on to a line considering the observance of foods and days; it gets over looked. Too many people consider sin the breaking of the one of the ten commandments. The reprobate mind reduces and compartmentalizes down to the un-approachable minimum. The scale of sin is much broader than we observe bringing every living breath and action into doubt. To know this scale of sin and it's human inescapably is to know why Jesus had to die one for all to it.
