22 Do you have faith? Have it to yourself before God. Happy is he who does not condemn himself in what he approves.
23 But he who doubts is condemned if he eats, because he does not eat from faith; for whatever is not from faith is sin.
faith — liberty, as in verse 2. Faith is necessary and good, but it’s not to be displayed to show superiority.
Happy is he — similar to verse 5 “convinced in his own mind.” Happy for not using his rightful liberty to cause a brother to stumble.
Verse 23 is a warning to the weak.
