Concerning Food Sacrificed To Idols

8 Food will never bring us near to God. We are no worse if we do not eat it; we are no better if we do. 9 But you must see to it that this right of yours does not become a stumbling block to overscrupulous people. 10 For if somebody sees you, who have an intelligent view of this matter, partaking of a meal in an idol's temple, will he not be emboldened, with his overscrupulous conscience, to eat the food which has been sacrificed to an idol?
