<< 1 Corinthians 8 9 >>

  • Romans 14:13-15
    So let’s stop condemning each other. Decide instead to live in such a way that you will not cause another believer to stumble and fall.I know and am convinced on the authority of the Lord Jesus that no food, in and of itself, is wrong to eat. But if someone believes it is wrong, then for that person it is wrong.And if another believer is distressed by what you eat, you are not acting in love if you eat it. Don’t let your eating ruin someone for whom Christ died.
