Romans 14

1          Accept other believers who are weak in faith,  and don’t  argue  about opinions

2-8          You cannot judge another person’s servant.  

10-12      So why do you judge your brothers and sisters in Christ?                      (James 2:1-4,  8-9)

13-15  … we should stop judging each other. .. I know there is no food that is wrong to eat…

16            Do not allow what you think is good to become what others say is evil.


22     Your beliefs about these things should be kept secret between you and God.  Blessed is the man who does not condemn himself by what he approves.  23  Anything that is done without believing it is right is a sin.  

Romans 8:6   If people’s thinking is controlled by the sinful self,  there is death. But if their thinking is controlled by the Spirit, there is life and peace.

 Romans 6:22  But now you are free from sin and have become slaves of God. This brings you a life that is only for God,  and this gives you life forever.      

Col 3:15-16  Let the peace that Christ gives control your thinking….. Always be thankful.  Let the teaching of Christ live in you richly…

1 Peter 4:1  …strengthen yourselves with the same way of thinking Christ had…...

2 Cor 10:3-5  We do live in the world,  but we do not fight in the same way the world fights. Our weapons have power from God…  We destroy people’s arguments… We capture every thought and make it give up and obey Christ.
