Do not destroy the work of God for the sake of food. All things indeed are pure, butit is evil for the man who eats with offense. Romans 14:20

“Do not destroy the work of God…” What is this referring to? It is the work of God in Christ Jesus, fulfilling the law and its requirements so that we can live in newness of the Spirit.… Read the rest

Therefore let us pursue the things which make for peace and the things by which one may edify another. Romans 14:19

Therefore do not let your good be spoken of as evil;  Romans 14:16

With the use of the word “therefore” we are asked to refer to what was just said in order to grab Paul’s intended meaning. The previous two verses stated, “I know and am convinced by the Lord Jesus that there is nothing unclean of itself; but to him who considers anything to be unclean, to him it is unclean.… Read the rest
