Therefore, let us no longer criticize one another, but instead decide not to put a stumbling block or pitfall in your brother's way.
(I know and am persuaded by the Lord Jesus that nothing is unclean in itself. Still, to someone who considers a thing to be unclean, to that one it is unclean.)
For if your brother is hurt by what you eat, you are no longer walking according to love. By what you eat, do not destroy that one for whom Christ died.
Therefore, do not let your good be slandered,
for the kingdom of God is not eating and drinking, but righteousness, peace, and joy in the Holy Spirit.
Whoever serves the Messiah in this way is acceptable to God and approved by men.
So then, we must pursue what promotes peace and what builds up one another.
Do not tear down God's work because of food. Everything is clean, but it is wrong for a man to cause stumbling by what he eats.
It is a noble thing not to eat meat, or drink wine, or do anything that makes your brother stumble.a22
Do you have faith? Keep it to yourself before God. Blessed is the man who does not condemn himself by what he approves.
