Romans 14:10–12 (ESV)
Do Not Pass Judgement on One Another
10 Why do you pass judgment on your brother? Or you, why do you despise your brother? For we will all stand before the judgment seat of God; 11 for it is written,
        “As I live, says the Lord, every knee shall bow to me,
and every tongue shall confess to God.”
12 So then each of us will give an account of himself to God.

Old Testament food and festival laws had been significant religious issues, but Christ freed us to observe or not to observe them. Christians may judge the conduct of others only on the basis of God’s Word. We should not go beyond it and pronounce judgment in matters of Christian freedom. Those who do so wound other believers and will have to account for such behavior before God Himself. In Baptism, we were joined with Christ and one another. Not even death can sever that bond.

I pray: In life and in death, O Lord, You promise to abide with me. Thank You for the assurance that I am Yours both now and for eternity. Teach us to speak according to Your Word, but to remain silent where Your Word grants freedom. Amen.
