The Weaker in the Faith

The Weaker in the Faith

Romans 14 – Receiving alongside the weaker in the faith

Romans 14:1-6

Moreover, bring alongside[1] the one weak in the faith , not unto discerning[2] of doubts, who on the one hand believes to eat all, on the other hand the weak one eats herbs. Let not the one eating despise the one not eating, and let not the one not eating judge the one eating. For the God brings him alongside. Who are you to judge the household servant of another? To his own Lord he stands or falls. And he will stand for the Lord has the natural ability to make him stand, who on the one hand judges a day alongside another, one the other hand who judges all days, each in his own mind being fully framed[3]. The one framing the mind on the day, to [the] Lord he frames the mind and the one not framing the mind on the day to [the] Lord does not frame the mind. And the one eating, eats to the Lord, for he gives thanks to the God and the one not eating does not eat to the Lord and gives thanks to the God.

[1] Often has the meaning of bringing alongside to instruct

[2] 1 Corinthains 12:10; Hebrews 5:14

[3] Combination of two Greek words. To fill up where something is lacking and to frame the mind. Luke 1:1; Romans 4:21; 2 Timothy 4:5,17
