    I agree with Rebecca, a very insightful comment.
  • Rebecca
    I think that God allows us to work out our own Salvation (with fear and trembling before God). No two people worship or believe EXACTLY alike. We have to communicate with God and work it out on a personal level. Once we do we will find peace and happiness.

    The Holy Spirit does not teach people that are following false doctrine that is being taught by false teachers. Test every spirit using the word of God. Christians are of one mind, one spirit, Christians agree on Biblical doctrine.
  • Tye
    This means that let no man judge you if your following Christ. If I am following the law by,keeping Sabbath, not eating pork. No one should judge me or try to put stumbling blocks in my way because of my convictions.him also i cannot judge my bretheren because they do not do as i do. God said EVERY KNEE SHALL BOW.I love this passage so enlightening. Its hard following Christ in a world that doesn't know him. God bless
  • Hono
    It simply means that each day is equal for worshiping God
  • Mona soliz for verse 2
    I believe it means that those who are strong in faith can endure all things and those who believe but are weak can endure little but should not be judge because God recieves all who believe through Christ.We who are stronger should strive everyday to help those who are weaker to become strong as one.we should also realize that being stronger does not make us better as we all fall short and sin.Romans touched my heart deeply and gave me a greater understanding of God's mercy and the belief that I should live my life everday as God wants and I also want to one day stand in his Glory.It was truly humbling to read.
