People's Bible Notes for Romans 14:16


Ro 14:16 Let not then your good be evil spoken of. You have greater knowledge than these weak brethren, and know that "nothing is unclean" (Ro 14:14). That is "good". But if you sternly insist on your right to do what the weak regard as sinful, your "good" will be evil spoken of.

    Verse 13 is a good reminder that we should stop judging others. We are all imperfect and it is not our place to judge others.

    word: For all have sinned, and come short of The Glory of God / For the wages of sin is death;but the gift of God is Eternal Life through Jesus Christ our Lord. Romans3:23, 6:23 /--- Depart from me,ye cursed,into everlasting fire prepared for the devil and his angels: Matthew 25:41/ fallen Angels will spend eternity in the lake of fire. / Angels just don't drop dead, they are not people.

    Yep! Satan is fried from within to out. That's blotted out Ezekiel 28:18,19. He is sentence to death and is the son of perdition death! Only person who is sentence to die. There will be a lot of fallen angels that die at the 7th trump but they just drop dead. Now for the rest of the folks that are on the other side they will be blotted out at the Great White Throne Judgment at the end.
