'Conscience' in the Bible
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.
For if someone 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?
Now when you sin like this against the brothers and wound their weak conscience, you are sinning against Christ.
Eat everything that is sold in the meat market, asking no questions for conscience’ sake,
If one of the unbelievers invites you over and you want to go, eat everything that is set before you, without raising questions of conscience.
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.
