A Sermon on Romans 14:1-4

Do Not Pass Judgment on One Another

As for the one who is weak in faith, welcome him, but not to quarrel over opinions. One person believes he may eat anything, while the weak person eats only vegetables. Let not the one who eats despise the one who abstains, and let not the one who abstains pass judgment on the one who eats, for God has welcomed him. Who are you to pass judgment on the servant of another? It is before his own master that he stands or falls. And he will be upheld, for the Lord is able to make him stand. (ESV)

Jumping to conclusions; the issue of foods; kinds of vegetarianism; meat and the ceremonial law; despising and judging; the spirit of fear leading to legalism; asceticism and the temperance movement.
