Clean or Unclean?
A Sermon on Romans 14:13-15
Do Not Cause Another to Stumble
Therefore let us not pass judgment on one another any longer, but rather decide never to put a stumbling block or hindrance in the way of a brother. I know and am persuaded in the Lord Jesus that nothing is unclean in itself, but it is unclean for anyone who thinks it unclean. For if your brother is grieved by what you eat, you are no longer walking in love. By what you eat, do not destroy the one for whom Christ died. (ESV)
Paul's indirect approach completed; stumblingblocks and snares : never being a hindrance to one's brother; Paul's apostolic authority; nothing is unclean of itself; Peter and Cornelius.
