Romans 8:9-11

9 you are not in such a state, but in a spiritual one, provided the divine spirit dwell in you. now if any man have not the spirit of Christ, he is none of his. 10 and if Christ be in you, tho' the body is mortal in consequence of sin; the spirit gives life by justification. 11 for if the spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead, dwell in you; he that raised up Christ from the dead, shall likewise restore your mortal bodies to life, by his spirit that dwelleth in you.

Romans 14:5-23

5 one man thinks one day fitter for religious worship than another: another thinks every day alike. let every man follow the persuasion of his own mind. 6 he that observes a day, and he that obobserves it not, act both from a sense of duty. he that eats, consisiders it as the bounty of his Lord, for he giveth God thanks; and he that forbeareth to eat, considers his forbearance as enjoined by his Lord, and giveth God thanks for the rest. 7 for we neither live, nor die, as if we were our own masters. 8 if we live, our life is appropriated to the Lord; and if we die, we die as his servants: whether we live therefore or die, we are the Lord's. 9 for to this end Christ both died, and rose, and revived, that he might be Lord both of the dead and living. 10 why then dost thou judge thy brother? or why dost thou think contemptibly of thy brother? since we shall all of us be brought before the judgment-seat of Christ. 11 for it is written, "as I live, saith the Lord, every knee shall bow to me, and every tongue shall give praise to God." 12 Since then every one of us shall give an account of himself to God; 13 let us not judge one another any more: but rather come to this determination, not to put a stumbling-block, or any thing in a brother's way, that may make him fall. 14 I know, being fully assured by the Lord Jesus, that there is nothing unclean of itself: it is only so to him that thinks it is unclean. 15 now if your brother be endanger'd by your eating, you violate the obligations of love: for such a matter as eating, will you risk his life, for whom Christ died? 16 Don't let our religion then be expos'd to reproach. 17 for the gospel dispensation does not consist in meats and drinks, but in piety and peace, and spiritual joy. 18 for he that thus pays his allegiance to Christ, is acceptable to God, and approved of men. 19 Let us therefore pursue those things which tend to peace, and mutual edification. 20 do not for such a thing as meat, pull down what God has been raising. all things indeed are pure; but they become evil to him who by eating giveth offence. 21 it is better to abstain from flesh, and wine, and every thing whereby your brother is in danger of falling off. 22 keep the persuasion you have, to your own conscience. blessed is he that approves himself to God, without making any difference about meats: 23 for he that makes a difference, is self-condemn'd, if he eats against his own persuasion: for every action of that kind is sin .

Romans 14:1-23

1 A weak convert receive as a friend without regard to any difference of opinion. 2 for one makes no difficulty of eating all sorts of food: another is so scrupulous, he lives upon herbs. 3 let not him that eateth, despise him that does not; and let not him that refrains, pass censure on him that eateth: for God hath received him. 4 who art thou that judgest the domestick of another? his staying or removal depends solely upon his master: yea, he shall be fixed: for God is able to establish him. 5 one man thinks one day fitter for religious worship than another: another thinks every day alike. let every man follow the persuasion of his own mind. 6 he that observes a day, and he that obobserves it not, act both from a sense of duty. he that eats, consisiders it as the bounty of his Lord, for he giveth God thanks; and he that forbeareth to eat, considers his forbearance as enjoined by his Lord, and giveth God thanks for the rest. 7 for we neither live, nor die, as if we were our own masters. 8 if we live, our life is appropriated to the Lord; and if we die, we die as his servants: whether we live therefore or die, we are the Lord's. 9 for to this end Christ both died, and rose, and revived, that he might be Lord both of the dead and living. 10 why then dost thou judge thy brother? or why dost thou think contemptibly of thy brother? since we shall all of us be brought before the judgment-seat of Christ. 11 for it is written, "as I live, saith the Lord, every knee shall bow to me, and every tongue shall give praise to God." 12 Since then every one of us shall give an account of himself to God; 13 let us not judge one another any more: but rather come to this determination, not to put a stumbling-block, or any thing in a brother's way, that may make him fall. 14 I know, being fully assured by the Lord Jesus, that there is nothing unclean of itself: it is only so to him that thinks it is unclean. 15 now if your brother be endanger'd by your eating, you violate the obligations of love: for such a matter as eating, will you risk his life, for whom Christ died? 16 Don't let our religion then be expos'd to reproach. 17 for the gospel dispensation does not consist in meats and drinks, but in piety and peace, and spiritual joy. 18 for he that thus pays his allegiance to Christ, is acceptable to God, and approved of men. 19 Let us therefore pursue those things which tend to peace, and mutual edification. 20 do not for such a thing as meat, pull down what God has been raising. all things indeed are pure; but they become evil to him who by eating giveth offence. 21 it is better to abstain from flesh, and wine, and every thing whereby your brother is in danger of falling off. 22 keep the persuasion you have, to your own conscience. blessed is he that approves himself to God, without making any difference about meats: 23 for he that makes a difference, is self-condemn'd, if he eats against his own persuasion: for every action of that kind is sin .

Galatians 6:10-18

10 therefore as we have opportunity, let us do good offices to all men, especially to the family of believers. 11 You see how long a letter I have writ to you with my own hand. 12 they who desire to make a figure in the world, constrain you to be circumcised, only to avoid being persecuted for the cross of Christ. 13 for even they who are circumcised, do not themselves observe the law in other respects; but they dedesire to have you circumcised, that they may have matter of glorying upon that account. 14 but far be it from me that I should glory, save in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by which the world is as contemptible to me, as I am to the world. 15 for in the dispensation of Jesus Christ, neither circumcision availeth any thing, nor uncircumcision, but the new creation. 16 as many as walk by this rule, peace and mercy be on them, even upon the Israel of God. 17 from henceforth let no man give me trouble; for I bear in my body the marks of the Lord Jesus. 18 Brethren, the favour of our Lord Jesus Christ be with your spirit. amen.
