Romans 14:15

Because of meat (dia brwma). "Because of food." In love (kata agaphn). "According to love" as the regulating principle of life. See 1 Corinthians 8:1 ff. where Paul pleads for love in place of knowledge on this point. Destroy not (mh apollue). Present active imperative of apolluw, the very argument made in 1 Corinthians 8:10 . With thy meat (twi brwmati sou). Instrumental case, "with thy food." It is too great a price to pay for personal liberty as to food.
