In Rom 14:13-23, Paul moves back and forth between indicative and imperative as he calls the church to very practically live out the realities of God's kingdom in their day to day life together. The issue in Paul's mind is not whether a certain food or drink is allowable for a new covenant believer, for he clearly states in vv. 10 and 20 that all foods are clean (echoing Jesus' pronouncement in Mk 7 and Peter's vision in Acts 10). The issue rather is a matter of faith (vv. 22-23) and love (v. 15) and the pursuit of that which leads to peace amongst believers and so shows that God's kingdom is a reality in our midst (vv. 17, 19).

Therefore let us not pass judgment on one another any longer,

never to put a stumbling block or hindrance in the way of a brother.

οἶδα καὶ πέπεισμαι ἐν κυρίῳ Ἰησοῦ ὅτι οὐδὲν κοινὸν δι' ἑαυτοῦ
I know and am persuaded in the Lord Jesus that nothing is unclean in itself,

but it is unclean for anyone who thinks it unclean.
progression
εἰ γὰρ διὰ βρῶμα ὁ ἀδελφός σου λυπεῖται
For if your brother is grieved by what you eat,
οὐκέτι κατὰ ἀγάπην περιπατεῖς
you are no longer walking in love.

μὴ βλασφημείσθω οὖν ὑμῶν τὸ ἀγαθόν
So do not let what you regard as good be spoken of as evil.

For the kingdom of God is not a matter of eating and drinking
ἀλλὰ δικαιοσύνη καὶ εἰρήνη καὶ χαρὰ ἐν πνεύματι ἁγίῳ
but of righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit.
ground
ὁ γὰρ ἐν τούτῳ δουλεύων τῷ Χριστῷ εὐάρεστος τῷ θεῷ καὶ δόκιμος τοῖς ἀνθρώποις
For whoever thus serves Christ is acceptable to God and approved by men.
ἄρα οὖν τὰ τῆς εἰρήνης διώκωμεν καὶ τὰ τῆς οἰκοδομῆς τῆς εἰς ἀλλήλους
So then let us pursue what makes for peace and for mutual upbuilding.
μὴ ἕνεκεν βρώματος κατάλυε τὸ ἔργον τοῦ θεοῦ
Do not, for the sake of food, destroy the work of God.

καλὸν τὸ μὴ φαγεῖν κρέα μηδὲ πιεῖν οἶνον μηδὲ
It is good not to eat meat or drink wine or do anything

σὺ πίστιν ἣν ἔχεις κατὰ σεαυτὸν ἔχε ἐνώπιον τοῦ θεοῦ
The faith that you have, keep between yourself and God.
μακάριος ὁ μὴ κρίνων ἑαυτὸν
Blessed is the one who has no reason to pass judgment on himself
ἐν ᾧ δοκιμάζει
for what he approves.
ὁ δὲ διακρινόμενος ... κατακέκριται
But whoever has doubts is condemned
ἐὰν φάγῃ
if he eats,
ὅτι οὐκ ἐκ πίστεως
because the eating is not from faith.
πᾶν δὲ ὃ οὐκ ἐκ πίστεως ἁμαρτία ἐστίν
For whatever does not proceed from faith is sin.
