'Food' in the Bible

so that we may keep the feast, not with old leaven, nor with the leaven of evil and wickedness, but with unleavened food of sincerity and truth.

But the sense of my letter was that if a brother had the name of being one who went after the desires of the flesh, or had the desire for other people's property, or was in the way of using violent language, or being the worse for drink, or took by force what was not his, you might not keep company with such a one, or take food with him.

Food is for the stomach, and the stomach is for food, but God will make them both unnecessary. The body is not meant for sexual immorality but for the Lord, and the Lord for the body.

About food offered to idols: We know that "we all have knowledge." Knowledge inflates with pride, but love builds up.

About eating food offered to idols, then, we know that "an idol is nothing in the world," and that "there is no God but one."

However, not everyone has this knowledge. In fact, some have been so used to idolatry up until now, that when they eat food offered to an idol, their conscience, being weak, is defiled.

Food will not make us acceptable to God. We are not inferior if we don't eat, and we are not better if we do eat.

For if somebody sees you, the one who has this knowledge, dining in an idol's temple, won't his weak conscience be encouraged to eat food offered to idols?

We have the right to earn our food, don't we?

Do you not know that those who perform the temple services eat the food from the temple, and those who serve at the altar share in the offerings of the altar?

See Israel after the flesh: do not those who take as food the offerings of the altar take a part in the altar?

What am I saying then? That food offered to idols is anything, or that an idol is anything?

Whatever meat may be had at the public market, take as food without question of right or wrong;

But if someone says to you, "This is food offered to an idol," do not eat it, out of consideration for the one who told you, and for conscience' sake.

If I partake with thankfulness, why am I blamed for the food that I give thanks for?

For when you take your food, everyone takes his meal before the other; and one has not enough food, and another is the worse for drink.

What! Do you have no houses in which to eat and drink? Or do you despise the church of God and mean to show contempt for it, while you humiliate those who are poor (have no homes and have brought no food)? What shall I say to you? Shall I commend you in this? No, [most certainly] I will not!

If any man is in need of food, let him take his meal in his house; so that you may not come together to your damage. And the rest I will put in order when I come.
