Romans 14:2-4 (MSG)

For instance, a person who has been around for a while might well be convinced that he can eat anything on the table, while another, with a different background, might assume he should only be a vegetarian and eat accordingly. But since both are guests at Christ’s table, wouldn’t it be terribly rude if they fell to criticizing what the other ate or didn’t eat? God, after all, invited them both to the table. Do you have any business crossing people off the guest list or interfering with God’s welcome? If there are corrections to be made or manners to be learned, God can handle that without your help.


Q: In this passage Paul uses food as an example where Christians may disagree on what is right – what are some relevant cultural disagreements we are having today regarding our faith?

Q: Do you find yourself imposing personal convictions as commands from God?

Q: With whom do you have strong differences of opinion with – are you showing them love? Are you seeking peace and reconciliation with all men, or are you content to allow some relationships to remain in a state of disrepair?
