New Testament

Paul’s Letters

Why was Paul concerned that some believers might thwart other believers’ faith?

People from all walks of life became believers. For example, they had a variety of beliefs about what foods were acceptable to eat. Paul did not want these differences of opinion to encourage one believer to chastise another believer. Paul wrote, “It’s true that we can’t win God’s approval by what we eat. We don’t miss out on anything if we don’t eat it, and we don’t gain anything if we do.” (NLT, I Corinthians 8:8) Faith, not food, was the key to life in Jesus.
