Romans 14:19-26 (Epistle)

19
Therefore let us pursue the things which make for peace and the things by which one may edify another.
20
Do not destroy the work of God for the sake of food. All things indeed are pure, but it is evil for the man who eats with offense.
21
It is good neither to eat meat nor drink wine nor do anything by which your brother stumbles or is offended or is made weak.
22
Do you have faith? Have it to yourself before God. Happy is he who does not condemn himself in what he approves.
23
But he who doubts is condemned if he eats, because he does not eat from faith; for whatever is not from faith is sin.
24
Now to him who is able to establish you according to my Good News and the preaching of Jesus Christ, according to the revelation of the mystery which has been kept secret through long ages,
25
but now is revealed, and by the Scriptures of the prophets, according to the commandment of the eternal God, is made known for obedience of faith to all the nations;
26
to the only wise God, through Jesus Christ, to whom be the glory forever! Amen.
