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' sakea1--
the other man's conscience, I mean, not yours. For why should my freedom2 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?331
So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God.432
Do not cause anyone to stumble,5 whether Jews, Greeks or the church of God6--
even as I try to please everybody in every way.7 For I am not seeking my own good but the good of many,8 so that they may be saved.9
