Romans 14:5 (KJV) It Is About Faith

Romans 14:5 (KJV)
One man esteemeth one day above another: another esteemeth every day alike. Let every man be fully persuaded in his own mind.
Romans chapter fourteen is all about the doctrine of individual soul liberty, a doctrine for which Baptists have been the sole champions. It asserts that, since each of us will stand before God to give account alone then, each of us should be free to worship God as we alone see fit.
The chapter teaches:
Each man needs to be fully persuadedIn other words, while I can’t force my view on another I can try to persuade them. It is no conviction if it has not been studied and tested.
No man should judge another concerning faithI take this to mean in attempting to force a particular faith upon them.
All of us should be concerned about causing stumbling blocksOurs ought to be to encourage. With encouragement a person may grow and come to see things differently. With discouragement we might cause them to stop growing at all.
It is about faithSpiritual activity is meaningless unless that activity is motivated by true faith. Activity that has been coerced is of no value.
