He said we know there is only one true God, suffice it is not wrong for a believer to eat such food having this knowledge.
However, in verse nine, he cautioned, “But take heed lest by any means this liberty of yours become a stumblingblock to them that are weak.”
So, drawing inference from this scripture one can say there are conducts that are right for a believer, but for the sake of they that are weak he/she must stay away from them.
Paul, the erudite Apostle went further to say, “For if any man see thee which hast knowledge sit at meat in the idol’s temple, shall not the conscience of him which is weak be emboldened to eat those things which are offered to idols.”
Is it wrong to eat idol’s food? Is it wrong to seat at prostitute/beer joint? Is it wrong to play/listen to worldly music? Is it wrong to dress as a modern man/woman? The answer maybe NO. But for the sake of others that are weak in conscience we are to avoid such, except for a godly motive, 1Cor 9:19-22.
We at LearnChrist therefore concluded that if going to certain places, doing certain things, dressing in certain manner etc could make the weak believer to offend, then we are to stay away from it.
“I will eat no flesh while the world standeth, lest I make my brother offend “, 1Cor 8:13.
God bless your soul!
