1. Should we be concerned about others speaking evil of our good?

Yes: “Let not then your good be evil spoken of” (Romans 14:16).

2. How important is food in the kingdom of our Lord?

Not: “For the kingdom of God is not meat and drink; but righteousness, and peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost” (Romans 14:17).

3. Whom must we serve to be acceptable to God and approved of men?

Christ: “For he that in these things serveth Christ is acceptable to God, and approved of men” (Romans 14:18).

4. Concerning matters of authorized liberties, how focused on peace do we need to be?

Completely: “Let us therefore follow after the things which make for peace, and things wherewith one may edify another” (Romans 14:19).

5. When is it not good to eat or drink certain things?

Eat with offense: “For meat destroy not the work of God. All things indeed are pure; but it is evil for that man who eateth with offence. It is good neither to eat flesh, nor to drink wine, nor any thing whereby thy brother stumbleth, or is offended, or is made weak” (Romans 14:20-21).

6. How important is it to know that what you’re doing is right?

It is the difference between right and wrong even in matters of authorized liberties: “Hast thou faith? have it to thyself before God. Happy is he that condemneth not himself in that thing which he alloweth. And he that doubteth is damned if he eat, because he eateth not of faith: for whatsoever is not of faith is sin” (Romans 14:22-23).
