1. Now concerning things sacrificed to idols, we know that we all have knowledge. Knowledge puffs up, but love edifies.

2. But if anyone thinks that he knows anything, he knows nothing yet to the degree that he ought to know.

3. But if anyone loves God, he is known by Him.

4. So then, concerning the eating of things sacrificed to idols, we understand that an idol in the world is nothing, and that there is no other God except one.

5. For indeed, even if there are those which are called gods, whether in heaven or on earth, as there are many gods and many lords,

6. Still, to us there is one God the Father, from Whom are all things, and we are in Him; and one Lord Jesus Christ, by Whom are all things, and we are by Him.

7. However, not all have this knowledge. But some, with consciousness of the idol, until now eat it as a thing sacrificed to an idol, and their conscience, being weak, is defiled.

8. But meat does not commend us to God; for we do not have any spiritual advantage if we eat, nor do we come short spiritually if we do not eat.

9. But beware, lest this freedom of yours becomes a stumbling block to those who are weak.

10. For if anyone sees you, who have knowledge, sitting to eat in an idoltemple, will not his weak conscience be emboldened so as to cause him to eat things sacrificed to idols?

11. And will the weak brother, for whom Christ died, perish on account of your knowledge?

12. Now when you sin against the brethren and wound their weak consciences in this way, you are sinning against Christ.

13. Therefore, if meat causes my brother to stumble, I will eat no flesh—not ever—so that I may not cause my brother to stumble.
