12Sothen1eachone of us will give an account of himself to God.
13Therefore let us not 2judgeoneanotheranymore, but ratherdeterminethis -3not to put an obstacleor a stumblingblock in a brother's way.
I know and am convincedain the LordJesus that 4nothing is unclean in itself; but to him who 5thinksanything to be unclean, to him it is unclean.
For ifbecause of food your brother is hurt, you are nolonger6walkingaccording to love. 7Do not destroy with your food him for whomChristdied.
16Therefore8do not let what is for you a goodthing be bspoken of as evil;
for the kingdom of God9is not eating and drinking, but righteousness and 10peace and 11joy in the HolySpirit.
For he who in this way 12servesChrist is 13acceptable to God and approved by men.
19Sothencwe 14pursue the things which make for peace and the 15building up of oneanother.
2016Do not teardown the work of God for the sake of food. 17Allthingsindeed are clean, but 18they are evil for the man who eatsdand givesoffense.
2119It is good not to eatmeator to drinkwine, or to do anything by which your brotherstumbles.
The faithwhich you have, haveeas your ownconvictionbeforeGod. Happy is he who 20does not condemnhimself in what he approves.
