    SEV Biblia, Chapter 10:29

    La conciencia, digo, no la tuya, sino la del otro. Pues ¿por qu ha de ser juzgada mi libertad por otra conciencia?

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - 1 Corinthians 10:29

    Verse 29. & 30. For why is my
    liberty judged of another man's conscience? &c.] Though in the case of flesh offered to idols, and other matters connected with idolatry, (on which it appears there was much of a tender conscience among some of the Corinthians,) it was necessary to sacrifice something to an over-scrupulous conscience, yet the Gospel of Christ did not lay any man under this general burthen, that he must do nothing at which any weak brother might feel hurt or be stumbled; for the liberty of the Gospel must not take for its rule the scrupulosity of any conscience; for if a man, by grace-by the allowance or authority of the Gospel, partake of any thing that God's bounty has sent, and which the Gospel has not forbidden, and give thanks to God for the blessing, no man has right or authority to condemn such a person. This seems to be the meaning of these two verses; and they read a lesson of caution to rash judges, and to those who are apt to take offense.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 29. Conscience I say, not thine own , etc.] Which is well informed about these things, and is fully
    persuaded that an idol is nothing, and that things sacrificed to idols are nothing; and as they cannot profit a man, or help forward his comfort, peace, and happiness, so they cannot hinder them: but of the others ; either the weak brother, or the unbelieving master of the feast; it is for the sake of their consciences such food must not be eaten, lest either the one should be grieved, or the other reproach: for why is my liberty judged of another mans conscience ? this is not an objection of the Corinthians, setting forth the unreasonableness of being condemned, for the use of their Christian liberty by anothers conscience, be he who he will, believer or unbeliever, when they had an undoubted right to such an use, and their own consciences did not condemn them: but they are the words of the apostle, expressing his own sense, that it was not right and fitting that he should make use of his liberty, and eat under such a circumstance as here pointed out, and so his liberty should be condemned as sinful by another mans conscience; since the weak believer would be apt to censure, judge, and condemn him as a libertine, and the unbeliever as an atheist, or one that had no regard to any religion at all; and therefore he reasons, that it was best to abstain from eating, rather than expose his liberty to such a censure and condemnation.

    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 __________________________________________________________________

    Robertson's NT Word Studies

    10:29 {For why is my
    liberty judged by another conscience?} (hina ti gar he eleuqeria mou krinetai hupo alles suneidesews;). Supply genetai (deliberative subjunctive) after ti. Paul deftly puts himself in the place of the strong brother at such a banquet who is expected to conform his conscience to that of the weak brother who makes the point about a particular piece of meat. It is an abridgment of one's personal liberty in the interest of the weak brother. Two individualities clash. The only reason is love which builds up (#8:2 and all of chapter #1Co 13). There is this eternal collision between the forces of progress and reaction. If they work together, they must consider the welfare of each other.
