Romans 14:2  
One man has faith to eat all things, but he who is weak eats only vegetables.

Romans 14:6  
He who observes the day, observes it to the Lord; and he who does not observe the day, to the Lord he does not observe it. He who eats, eats to the Lord, for he gives God thanks. He who doesn’t eat, to the Lord he doesn’t eat, and gives God thanks.

Romans 14:7

Romans 14:12  
So then each one of us will give account of himself to God.

Romans 14:13  
Therefore let’s not judge one another any more, but judge this rather, that no man put a stumbling block in his brother’s way, or an occasion for falling.

Yet if because of food your brother is grieved, you walk no longer in love. Don’t destroy with your food him for whom Christ died.

Then don’t let your good be slandered,

Romans 14:17  
for God’s Kingdom is not eating and drinking, but righteousness, peace, and joy in the Holy Spirit.
