20 (A)Do not, for the sake of food, destroy the work of God. (B)Everything is indeed clean, but (C)it is wrong for anyone to make another stumble by what he eats. 21 (D)It is good not to eat meat or drink wine or do anything that causes your brother to stumble.[a] 22 The faith that you have, keep between yourself and God.

For whatever does not proceed from faith is sin.[b]
