Concerning Food Sacrificed To Idols

8 But food does not bring us close to God. For neither if we eat do we have more, nor if we do not eat do we lack. 9 But watch out lest somehow this right of yours becomes a cause for stumbling to the weak. 10 For if someone should see you who has knowledge reclining for a meal in an idol's temple, will not his conscience, [because it] is weak, be strengthened so that [he] eats the food sacrificed to idols?
