For if your brother is grieved by what you eat, e you are no longer walking in love. f By what you eat, do not destroy the one for whom Christ died.
g So do not let what you regard as good be spoken of as evil.
h For the kingdom of God is not a matter of eating and drinking but i of righteousness and j peace and joy in the Holy Spirit.
Whoever thus serves Christ is k acceptable to God and approved by men.
So then let us l pursue what makes for peace and for m mutual upbuilding.
n Do not, for the sake of food, destroy the work of God. o Everything is indeed clean, but p it is wrong for anyone to make another stumble by what he eats.
q It is good not to eat meat or drink wine or do anything that causes your brother to stumble.
