Context Readings

Do Not Pass Judgment On One Another

14 I know and as a follower of the Lord Jesus I am convinced that nothing is unclean in itself; a thing is unclean only to the man who regards it as unclean. 15 For if your brother's feelings are hurt by what you eat, your life is not governed by love. You must not, by what you eat, ruin a man for whom Christ died. 16 The thing you have a right to do must not become a cause of reproach.
