    Let us stop judging one another. Instead, decide not to put anything in the way of a brother or sister. Don’t put anything in their way that would make them trip and fall.I am absolutely sure that nothing is“ unclean” in itself. The Lord Jesus has convinced me of this. But someone may consider a thing to be“ unclean.” If they do, it is“ unclean” for them.Your brother or sister may be upset by what you eat. If they are, you are no longer acting as though you love them. So don’t destroy them by what you eat. Remember that Christ died for them.
