Wesley's Notes for Romans 14:22


14:22 Hast thou faith - That all things are pure? Have it to thyself before God - In circumstances like these, keep it to thyself, and do not offend others by it. Happy is he that condemneth not himself - By an improper use of even innocent things! and happy he who is free from a doubting conscience! He that has this may allow the thing, yet condemn himself for it.


People's Bible Notes for Romans 14:22


Ro 14:22 Hast thou faith? Art thou strong in the faith, and possessed of knowledge that the weaker brethren have not? Let God take not of it, but do not parade it before the weak. Happy [is] he that condemneth not himself, etc. If one "allowed" that he had the right to eat all kinds of meats, etc., and did it to the injury of his brother, he would condemn himself, because he trampled on the law of love.

    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.
