Context
Do Not Cause Your Brother to Stumble

13Let us not therefore judge one another any more: but judge this rather, that no man put a stumbling block or an occasion to fall in his brother's way. 14I know, and am persuaded by the Lord Jesus, that there is nothing unclean of itself: but to him that esteems any thing to be unclean, to him it is unclean. 15But if your brother be grieved with your meat, now walk you not charitably. Destroy not him with your meat, for whom Christ died. 16Let not then your good be evil spoken of: 17For the kingdom of God is not meat and drink; but righteousness, and peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost. 18For he that in these things serves Christ is acceptable to God, and approved of men. 19Let us therefore follow after the things which make for peace, and things with which one may edify another. 20For meat destroy not the work of God. All things indeed are pure; but it is evil for that man who eats with offense. 21It is good neither to eat flesh, nor to drink wine, nor any thing whereby your brother stumbles, or is offended, or is made weak. 22Have you faith? have it to yourself before God. Happy is he that comdemns not himself in that thing which he allows. 23And he that doubts is damned if he eat, because he eats not of faith: for whatever is not of faith is sin.
