    SEV Biblia, Chapter 10:23

    ¶ Todo me es lícito, mas no todo conviene; todo me es lícito, mas no todo edifica.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - 1 Corinthians 10:23

    Verse 23. All things are
    lawful for me] I may lawfully eat all kinds of food, but all are not expedient; ou panta sumferei? It would not be becoming in me to eat of all, because I should by this offend and grieve many weak minds. See the notes on 1 Cor. vi. 12, &c.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 23. All things are
    lawful for me , etc.] All sorts of food are lawful to be eaten, every creature of God is good, there is nothing common or unclean in itself, polluted or polluting; and so things offered to idols may be lawfully eaten, but not as such, or in an idols temple, or before a weak brother; to do which is contrary to the honour of God, and the edification of the saints: and therefore all things are not expedient ; to be done always, and in all places, and before all persons. The apostle suggests, that though they might be lawful to him, and he might make use of his liberty in eating them; yet they might not be expedient, or of service, but on the contrary hurtful to others; and which therefore ought to be judged a sufficient reason for the omission of them: all things are lawful for me, but all things edify not ; though things of an indifferent nature may be lawfully used, yet they do not always tend to the edification of others, which should be consulted; and when this is the case, they ought to be disused. This is observed in answer to an objection taken from the doctrine of Christian liberty, allowing the free use of all the creatures, and disengaging men from an observance of the distinction of meats and drinks which the apostle grants; and yet argues from his own example, and the edification of the saints, that this is not always to be closely pursued; but believers should forego what they have a right to use, when the peace and welfare of their fellow Christians require it.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 23-33 - There were
    cases wherein Christians might eat what had been offered to idols, without sin. Such as when the flesh was sold in the market a common food, for the priest to whom it had been given. But a Christia must not merely consider what is lawful, but what is expedient, and to edify others. Christianity by no means forbids the common offices of kindness, or allows uncourteous behaviour to any, however they ma differ from us in religious sentiments or practices. But this is not to be understood of religious festivals, partaking in idolatrous worship According to this advice of the apostle, Christians should take car not to use their liberty to the hurt of others, or to their ow reproach. In eating and drinking, and in all we do, we should aim a the glory of God, at pleasing and honouring him. This is the great en of all religion, and directs us where express rules are wanting. holy, peaceable, and benevolent spirit, will disarm the greates enemies __________________________________________________________________
