But now as for what is inside you--be generous to the poor, and everything will be clean for you.
The voice spoke to him a second time, "Do not call anything impure that God has made clean."
I am convinced, being fully persuaded in the Lord Jesus, that nothing is unclean in itself. But if anyone regards something as unclean, then for that person it is unclean.
Do not destroy the work of God for the sake of food. All food is clean, but it is wrong for a person to eat anything that causes someone else to stumble.
But whoever has doubts is condemned if they eat, because their eating is not from faith; and everything that does not come from faith is sin.
1 Timothy 6:5
and constant friction between people of corrupt mind, who have been robbed of the truth and who think that godliness is a means to financial gain.
