Rom 14:1  Him that is weak in the faith receive ye, but not to doubtful disputations.
Rom 14:2  For one believeth that he may eat all things: another, who is weak, eateth herbs.
Rom 14:3  Let not him that eateth despise him that eateth not; and let not him which eateth not judge him that eateth: for God hath received him.

We can be tolerant of another's choices that are not important and we should not say words to start an argument, let it go and walk in peace.
Rom 14:10  But why dost thou judge thy brother? or why dost thou set at nought thy brother? for we shall all stand before the judgment seat of Christ.
Rom 14:11  For it is written, As I live, saith the Lord, every knee shall bow to me, and every tongue shall confess to God.
Rom 14:12  So then every one of us shall give account of himself to God.

Stop being your brothers judge. God is the judge. We may encourage but not condemn. It is best to make sure that we are not the problem. We are known by our fruit, so let's be sure that we are behaving as Jesus and doing his will.
Rom 15:1  We then that are strong ought to bear the infirmities of the weak, and not to please ourselves.
Rom 15:2  Let every one of us please his neighbour for his good to edification.
Rom 15:3  For even Christ pleased not himself; but, as it is written, The reproaches of them that reproached thee fell on me.

We are to help others to be fruitful in their callings. We need to get the focus off of self and others faults and be a blessing, helping others grow. By doing this we also will increase in godliness.
Gal 6:1  Brethren, if a man be overtaken in a fault, ye which are spiritual, restore such an one in the spirit of meekness; considering thyself, lest thou also be tempted.
Gal 6:2  Bear ye one another's burdens, and so fulfil the law of Christ.
Gal 6:3  For if a man think himself to be something, when he is nothing, he deceiveth himself.

We are to restore, not condemn. Who made us a judge? We are to be positive, for we of ourselves are forgiven sinners; we are nothing apart from Christ.
