Romans 14:9-18

9 For to this end Christ died and lived again, that he might be Lord both of the dead and of the living.

10 Why do you pass judgment on your brother? Or you, why do you despise your brother? For we shall 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 give praise to God.”

12 So each of us shall give account of himself to God.

13 Then let us no more pass judgment on one another, but rather decide never to put a stumbling block or hindrance in the way of a brother.

14 I know and am persuaded in the Lord Jesus that nothing is unclean in itself; but it is unclean for any one who thinks it unclean.

15 If your brother is being injured by what you eat, you are no longer walking in love. Do not let what you eat cause the ruin of one for whom Christ died.

16 So do not let your good be spoken of as evil.

17 For the kingdom of God is not food and drink but righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit;

18 he who thus serves Christ is acceptable to God and approved by men.

Matthew 12:14-16, 22-30

14 But the Pharisees went out and took counsel against him, how to destroy him.

15 Jesus, aware of this, withdrew from there. And many followed him, and he healed them all,

16 and ordered them not to make him known.

22 Then a blind and dumb demoniac was brought to him, and he healed him, so that the dumb man spoke and saw.

23 And all the people were amazed, and said, “Can this be the Son of David?”

24 But when the Pharisees heard it they said, “It is only by Be-elzebul, the prince of demons, that this man casts out demons.”

25 Knowing their thoughts, he said to them, “Every kingdom divided against itself is laid waste, and no city or house divided against itself will stand;

26 and if Satan casts out Satan, he is divided against himself; how then will his kingdom stand?

27 And if I cast out demons by Be-elzebul, by whom do your sons cast them out? Therefore they shall be your judges.

28 But if it is by the Spirit of God that I cast out demons, then the kingdom of God has come upon you.

29 Or how can one enter a strong man’s house and plunder his goods, unless he first binds the strong man? Then indeed he may plunder his house.

30 He who is not with me is against me, and he who does not gather with me scatters.
