Read 1 Corinthians 6:12 Using Other Translations
All things are lawful unto me, but all things are not expedient: all things are lawful for me, but I will not be brought under the power of any.
"All things are lawful for me," but not all things are helpful. "All things are lawful for me," but I will not be enslaved by anything.
You say, “I am allowed to do anything”—but not everything is good for you. And even though “I am allowed to do anything,” I must not become a slave to anything.
