Is it expedient to eat everything that it is lawful to eat

"All things are lawful for me, but all things are not expedient: all things are lawful for me, but all things edify not." 1 Cor. 10:23.

NOTE.-There is no doubt but that Paul is in this place talking about what should be eaten. He teaches that under certain circumstances those to whom he writes, should abstain from eating of that which has been offered to idols, lest weak Christians should be led into idolatry. 1 Cor. 10:20, 21, 28. But if one is bidden to a feast, and feels disposed to go, he can eat what is set before him. In these things one is to consider, not merely his appetite, but the glory of God and his influence on others.
