for, "The earth is the Lord's, and everything in it."a127
If some unbeliever invites you to a meal and you want to go, eat whatever is put before you2 without raising questions of conscience.
But if anyone says to you, "This has been offered in sacrifice," then do not eat it, both for the sake of the man who told you and for conscience' sakeb3--
the other man's conscience, I mean, not yours. For why should my freedom4 be judged by another's conscience?
If I take part in the meal with thankfulness, why am I denounced because of something I thank God for?531
So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God.632
Do not cause anyone to stumble,7 whether Jews, Greeks or the church of God8--
even as I try to please everybody in every way.9 For I am not seeking my own good but the good of many,10 so that they may be saved.11
