ایمانداران ضعیف و قوی

۱۴

           کسی را که ایمانش ضعیف است، بپذیرید، بی‌آنکه دربارۀ مسائل مورد تردید، حکم صادر کنید. ۲ایمانِ یکی به او اجازه می‌دهد هر غذایی را بخورد، امّا دیگری که ایمانش ضعیف است، فقط سبزیجات می‌خورد.۳آن که همه‌چیز می‌خورد، نباید به آن که نمی‌خورد به دیدۀ تحقیر بنگرد؛ و آن که همه‌چیز نمی‌خورد، نباید آن‌کس را که هر غذایی را می‌خورد، محکوم کند. زیرا خدا او را پذیرفته است.۴تو کیستی که بر خدمتکار شخصی دیگر حکم می‌کنی؟ استوار ماندن یا فرو‌افتادن او به آقایش مربوط است. و او استوار هم خواهد ماند زیرا خداوند قادر است او را استوار گرداند. ۵کسی یک روز را از دیگر روزها مقدّستر می‌شمارد؛ فردی دیگر، همۀ روزها را یکسان می‌پندارد. هر‌کس در ذهن خودش کاملاً متقاعد باشد.۶آن که روزی خاص را مهم می‌شمارد، برای خداوند چنین می‌کند. آن که گوشت می‌خورد، برای خداوند می‌خورد، زیرا خدا را شکر می‌گوید. و آن که از خوردن گوشت می‌پرهیزد، او نیز برای خداوند چنین می‌کند و خدا را شکر می‌گزارد.۷زیرا هیچ‌یک از ما برای خود زندگی نمی‌کنیم و هیچ‌یک از ما برای خود نمی‌ میریم. ۸اگر زندگی می‌کنیم، برای خداوند است، و اگر می‌میریم، آن نیز برای خداوند است. پس خواه زندگی کنیم، خواه بمیریم، از آنِ خداوندیم.۹مسیح نیز به همین سبب مرد و زنده شد تا خداوندِ زندگان و مردگان باشد.۱۰پس تو چرا برادر خود را محکوم می‌کنی؟ و تو چرا به برادر خود به دیدۀ تحقیر می‌نگری؟ زیرا همۀ ما در برابر مسند داوری خدا حاضر خواهیم شد.۱۱چرا‌که نوشته شده است: خداوند می‌گوید: به حیات خودم سوگند که هر زانویی در برابر من خم خواهد شد و هر زبانی به خدا اقرار خواهد کرد.۱۲پس هر یک از ما حساب خود را به خدا بازخواهد داد. ۱۳بنابراین، بیایید از این پس یکدیگر را محکوم نکنیم. به‌جای آن، تصمیم بگیرید که هیچ سنگ لغزش یا مانعی در راه برادر خود مگذارید. ۱۴من در مقام کسی که در عیسای خداوند است، اطمینان دارم که هیچ‌چیز به خودی خود نجس نیست. امّا اگر کسی چیزی را نجس می‌شمارد، برای او نجس خواهد بود.۱۵اگر با خوراکی که می‌خوری برادرت را دردمند می‌سازی، دیگر بر پایۀ محبت رفتار نمی‌کنی. با خوراک خود، برادر خویش را که مسیح به‌خاطر او مرد، هلاک مساز.۱۶مگذارید در مورد آنچه شما نیکو می‌شمارید، بد گفته شود. ۱۷زیرا پادشاهی خدا خوردن و نوشیدن نیست، بلکه پارسایی، آرامش و شادی در روح‌القدس است. ۱۸هر‌که بدین طریق مسیح را خدمت کند، خدا را خشنود می‌سازد و پذیرفتۀ مردم نیز هست. ۱۹پس بیایید آنچه را که موجب برقراری صلح و صفا و بنای یکدیگر می‌شود، دنبال کنیم.۲۰کار خدا را برای خوراک خراب مکن! همۀ خوراکها پاکند، امّا خوردن هر خوراکی که باعث لغزش دیگری شود، عملی است نادرست.۲۱بهتر آن است که از خوردن گوشت یا نوشیدن شراب یا انجام هر کار دیگر که باعث لغزش برادرت می‌شود، بپرهیزی. ۲۲پس عقیده‌ات را دربارۀ این امور، بین خود و خدا نگاه دار. خوشابهحال کسی که به‌خاطر آنچه مورد قبول اوست، خود را محکوم نمی‌کند.۲۳امّا کسی که دربارۀ خوردنِ خوراکی دچار تردید است، اگر آن را بخورد محکوم می‌شود، زیرا با ایمان نخورده است و آنچه از ایمان نباشد، گناه است.

۱۵            ما که قوی هستیم، باید ناتوانیهای ضعیفان را متحمل شویم و در پی خشنودی خویش نباشیم. ۲هر یک از ما باید همسایۀ خود را خشنود سازد، در آنچه برای او نیکو باشد و باعث بنایش شود.۳زیرا مسیح نیز در پی خشنودی خود نبود، چنانکه نوشته شده است: توهینهای توهین‌کنندگانِ به تو، بر من فرو‌افتاد.»۴زیرا آنچه در گذشته نوشته شده است، برای تعلیم ما بوده تا با پایداری و آن دلگرمی که کتب‌مقدّس می‌بخشد، امید داشته باشیم. ۵اینک خدای بخشندۀ پایداری و دلگرمی به شما عطا کند که در انطباق با مسیحْ عیسی با یکدیگر همفکر باشید،۶تا یکدل و یکزبان، خدا یعنی پدر خداوند ما عیسی مسیح را تمجید کنید. ۷پس همانگونه که مسیح شما را پذیرفت، شما نیز یکدیگر را بپذیرید تا خدا جلال یابد. ۸زیرا به شما می‌گویم که مسیح برای نشان دادن امانت خدا، خدمتگزار یهودیان شد تا بر وعده‌هایی که به پدران داده شده بود، مهر تأیید زند،۹و تا قومهای غیریهود، خدا را به‌سبب رحمتش تمجید کنند. چنانکه نوشته شده است: از این‌رو، تو را در میان قومها اقرار خواهم کرد،و در وصف نام تو سرودها خواهم سرایید.۱۰باز می‌گوید:ای قومها با قوم او شادی کنید.۱۱و نیز می‌گوید: ای همۀ قومها، خداوند را حمد گویید،و ای همۀ امّتها او را تسبیح بخوانید. ۱۲و اِشَعْیا نیز می‌گوید: ریشۀ یِسای پدیدار خواهد شد، هماو که برای حکمرانی بر قومها بر‌خواهد خاست؛ به اوست که قومها امید خواهند بست.۱۳اینک خدای امید، شما را از کمال شادی و آرامش در ایمان آکنده سازد تا با قدرت روح‌القدس، سرشار از امید باشید.
