As one who is in the Lord Jesus, I am fully convinced that no fooda is unclean in itself.1 But if anyone regards something as unclean, then for him it is unclean.215
If your brother is distressed because of what you eat, you are no longer acting in love.3 Do not by your eating destroy your brother for whom Christ died.416
Do not allow what you consider good to be spoken of as evil.517
For the kingdom of God is not a matter of eating and drinking,6 but of righteousness, peace7 and joy in the Holy Spirit,818
because anyone who serves Christ in this way is pleasing to God and approved by men.919
Let us therefore make every effort to do what leads to peace10 and to mutual edification.1120
Do not destroy the work of God for the sake of food.12 All food is clean,13 but it is wrong for a man to eat anything that causes someone else to stumble.1421
It is better not to eat meat or drink wine or to do anything else that will cause your brother to fall.1522
So whatever you believe about these things keep between yourself and God. Blessed is the man who does not condemn16 himself by what he approves.
But the man who has doubts17 is condemned if he eats, because his eating is not from faith; and everything that does not come from faith is sin.
