“For one beleeueth that he may eat all things: another who is weake, eateth herbes.”
1611 King James Version (KJV)
14:2 All things - All sorts of food, though forbidden by the law.
Ro 14:2 For one believeth that he may eat all things. The apostle now names one of those differences of opinion that had made trouble. Differences had risen over food. The flesh of animals offered in idol sacrifices was offered in the markets, and one buying could not always be sure that he did not get it. Others, Jewish Christians, or of Judaizing tendencies, believed it wrong to eat any food forbidden by the law. Another . . . eateth herbs. Perhaps others believed, like the Essenes, that the regenerate man should eat only vegetables, like the primitive race in Eden. Hence, for one or all of these causes, some thought meat ought to be abstained from entirely. Disputes arose over the difference.
