Donald Karnes - Romans 14
A marvelous chapter! It deals with the "gray-area" not explicitly covered. We find here at least 7 "guide-lines" to help us make this personal decision. We are not under Law but Grace! Liberty is not license! No hard and fast rules can be made for Eat and Drink, Wear and Work and how to spend the Lord's Day, or proper Recreation! Some are strong and some are weak. Yet everyone must reach a position of settled conviction: Verse 5, "Let every man be fully persuaded in his own mind!" This chapter helps us to come to this place, "Fully persuaded."
1) STAY OFF THE JUDGMENT SEAT:
Don't condemn anyone because he does not see things exactly as you do! "One believeth that he may eat all things, another who is weak, eateth herbs. Let not him that eateth despise him that eateth not; and let not him that eateth not judge him that eateth." It is not our place to judge! "Who art thou that judgeth another man's servant?" I'm responsible to God for the way I live. Before God, I Stand or Fall! A young mother lost her husband in the war, and left her 6-year-old child, who was going blind in an orphanage. She said, "I'll be back!" 12 years later, now remarried and with means, she tried to find her child that had been adopted.
