Context Readings

Do Not Pass Judgment On One Another

1 But you should welcome [into your fellowship] the person whose faith is weak, and not argue [with him] over questionable matters. 2 One person has enough faith that allows him to eat anything [i.e., without it bothering his conscience that the food, such as animal meat, was used in an idolatrous worship ceremony]. But the weak person can eat only vegetables [conscientiously]. 3 The person who can eat anything should not look down on the person who cannot eat [what was used in idolatrous worship]; and the person who cannot eat [such things] should not pass judgment on the person who can. For God accepts that person, too.
