Why dost thou judge thy brother?

Romans 14

Romans 14:1

Receive the weak but sincere believer into fellowship, but do not at once commence discussing knotty points with him, or quarrel with him upon matters of no importance.

Romans 14:4

Matters of meat and drink are to be left to Christian liberty, and no one has any right to dictate to another how he shall act. It is, however, a good rule—”in all cases of doubt be sure to take the surer side.”

Romans 14:5

Some kept the Jewish festivals and some did not.

Romans 14:7

No true Christian lives to himself, and therefore as he lives to God we have no right to judge his course of action.

Romans 14:8, 9

The very design of our Lord’s work is to make us live unto him and not as the servants of our fellow men; we are therefore very wrong when we attempt to make our brethren the servants of our opinions and ideas. Let us leave them to serve the Lord as their consciences teach them.

Romans 14:14

We must not violate our conscience. We may not do what we believe to be wrong because we see others do it. We must neither judge them nor excuse ourselves.

Romans 14:15

You have liberty to do as you please, but do not use that liberty if it would be mischievous to your brother in Christ. If your action, though right in itself, would have a tendency to destroy his soul, deny yourself for love’s sake.

Romans 14:22

Do you feel quite sure upon such matters?

Romans 14:22

Keep it within thine own bosom, but do not worry others with it.

Romans 14:23

And he that doubteth is damned or rather condemned

Romans 14:23

If you are not sure that a thing is right, let it alone, for it will be sin to you.
