A little more in-depth study shows the Greek word for ‘food ‘ is not even in Romans 14:14. The Strong’s Concordance said the word was “not in Greek” meaning the word ‘food’ was not found in the original Greek manuscript even though it was added to some of our English Bibles. This is significant for two reasons. First, Sha’ul was not speaking to the Romans about the removal of dietary instructions or the ‘appointed times’ of Adonai and our freedom to do whatever we want. He was teaching about what individuals consider acceptable or unacceptable in their personal lifestyles – disputable matters – and how as the Body of Messiah, the strong in faith need to accept the weak.

Hebrews 6 – Maturing in Messiah
The message of wisdom is for the mature who walk in the Spirit of God (1 Corinthians 2:4-6). God’s Spirit enabled Yeshua to walk in the wisdom of his Father. God’s Spirit gives the spiritually mature the same wisdom as Yeshua, the mind of Messiah (1 Corinthians 2:16). Wisdom is taking knowledge and understanding and acting on it. According to Hosea 14:10, the wise understand that the ways of Adonai are straight, and the righteous walk in them.
