Romans 14: 1 - 23 makes no sense!
Let us analyse this passage. My comments are in yellow:
14 Welcome the man having weaknesses in his faith, but do not pass judgment on differing opinions. One man has faith to eat everything, but the man who is weak eats only vegetables. 3 Let the one eating not look down on the one not eating, and let the one not eating not judge the one eating, for God has welcomed him. 4 Who are you to judge the servant of another? To his own master he stands or falls. Indeed, he will be made to stand, for Jehovah can make him stand. 5 One man judges one day as above another; another judges one day the same as all others; let each one be fully convinced in his own mind. 6 The one who observes the day observes it to Jehovah. Also, the one who eats, eats to Jehovah, for he gives thanks to God; and the one who does not eat does not eat to Jehovah, and yet gives thanks to God. 7 Not one of us, in fact, lives with regard to himself only, and no one dies with regard to himself only. 8 For if we live, we live to Jehovah, and if we die, we die to Jehovah. So both if we live and if we die, we belong to Jehovah. 9 For to this end Christ died and came to life again, so that he might be Lord over both the dead and the living. 10 But why do you judge your brother? Or why do you also look down on your brother? For we will all stand before the judgment seat of God. 11 For it is written: “‘As surely as I live,’ says Jehovah,‘to me every knee will bend, and every tongue will make open acknowledgment to God.’” 12 So, then, each of us will render an account for himself to God. 13 Therefore, let us not judge one another any longer
Yes, we should not judge one another. 100% agreed
13 but, rather, be determined not to put a stumbling block or an obstacle before a brother. 14 I know and am convinced in the Lord Jesus that nothing is unclean in itself; only where a man considers something to be unclean, to him it is unclean. 15 For if your brother is being offended because of food, you are no longer walking according to love. Do not by your food ruin that one for whom Christ died. 16 Therefore, do not let the good you do be spoken of as bad. 17 For the Kingdom of God does not mean eating and drinking, but means righteousness and peace and joy with holy spirit. 18 For whoever slaves for Christ in this way is acceptable to God and has approval with men.19 So, then, let us pursue the things making for peace and the things that build one another up. 20 Stop tearing down the work of God just for the sake of food. True, all things are clean, but it is detrimental for a man to eat when it will cause stumbling. 21 It is best not to eat meat or drink wine or do anything over which your brother stumbles. 22 The faith that you have, keep it to yourself before God. Happy is the man who does not judge himself by what he approves. 23 But if he has doubts, he is already condemned if he eats, because he does not eat based on faith. Indeed, everything that is not based on faith is sin.
Wait... you said earlier that no one should judge, but now you talk about not stumbling your brother??? Should not the brother be the one not judging instead???
Same goes with 1 Corinthians 10: 23 - 31 which also makes no sense!
1 Corinthians 10: 23 - All things are lawful, but not all things are advantageous. All things are lawful, but not all things build up.
Things that are lawful may not be advantageous or build up. So I can do things according to God's law and still be wrong???
24 Let each one keep seeking, not his own advantage, but that of the other person.
So we should prioritize the other person first. Wait... but shouldn't the other person be giving us prority likewise???
25 Eat whatever is sold in a meat market, making no inquiry because of your conscience, 26 for “to Jehovah belong the earth and everything in it.” 27 If an unbeliever invites you and you want to go, eat whatever is set before you, making no inquiry on account of your conscience.
Yay! So I can eat anything I want according to my own conscience!
28 But if anyone says to you, “This is something offered in sacrifice,” do not eat because of the one who told you and because of conscience.
WTF! You just said earlier that it's MY conscience whether to eat or not!!!
29 I do not mean your own conscience, but that of the other person. For why should my freedom be judged by another person’s conscience? 30 If I am partaking with thanks, why am I to be spoken of abusively over that for which I give thanks?
Exactly. Why should my freedom be judged by another person's conscience? Why should I be spoken of abusively when it's my conscience? And what do you mean that you do not mean my own conscience but that of the other person when you specifically mentioned that it's MY personal conscience in verses 25 - 27???
31 Therefore, whether you are eating or drinking or doing anything else, do all things for God’s glory. 32 Keep from becoming causes for stumbling to Jews as well as Greeks and to the congregation of God
Doing all things to God's glory means following his law (eg. not eating blood). Telling us not to stumble others in other matters of food is irrelevant as whatever we do is according to our own conscience as stated in verses 25 - 27!!!
Finally, we come to Colossians 2: 16 -
Therefore, do not let anyone judge you about what you eat and drink or about the observance of a festival or of the new moon or of a sabbath.
So we should not let anyone judge again. Great! What the hell was that stumbling part all about then???
