People's Bible Notes for Romans 14:1


Ro 14:1 Differences of Opinion SUMMARY OF ROMANS 14: Differences Concerning Food and Holy Days. We May Not Condemn One Another for Things Indifferent. Let Us Not Judge One Another. Let Us Be Charitable to Each Other. The Kingdom Higher Than Meats, Drinks, or Days. Do Nothing Doubtful in Your Mind. Him that is weak in the faith. Not firmly established; not "rooted and grounded in the faith" (Col 2:7); not fully instructed in Christian knowledge. Receive ye, etc. Take him into your fellowship, but not to discuss and pass judgments on any doubts he may entertain. Conybeare and Howson write: ``Literally, not acting so as to make distinctions about disputatious reasonings". The idea is that disputes over doubtful questions must not be in the way of Christian fellowship.''

    Paul was speaking of the Jews and the gentiles in their customs of beliefs, we should not condemn how anyones worship to the Lord, keep festivals, or what anyone eats, or drinks, if we keep the sabbath or go and work with our hands, Christ came and fulfilled the old laws,but it is wise not to judge another on how they choose to serve the Lord, we are all servants to the Lord our God Amen God bless
