Bible verses about "food" | ABU

Mark 7:14-23

14 And again calling to him the multitude, he said to them: Hearken to me every one, and understand. 15 There is nothing from without a man, that entering into him can defile him; but the things that come out of him, these are they that defile the man. 16 If any one has ears to hear, let him hear. 17 And when he entered into the house from the multitude, his disciples asked him concerning the parable. 18 And he says to them: Are ye so without understanding also? Do ye not perceive, that whatever from without enters into the man can not defile him? 19 Because it enters not into his heart, but into the belly, and goes out into the drain, cleansing all food. 20 And he said: That which comes out of the man, that defiles the man. 21 For from within, out of the heart of men, come forth evil thoughts, adulteries, fornications, murders, 22 thefts, covetousness, wickedness, deceit, wantonness, an evil eye, blasphemy, pride, foolishness. 23 All these evil things come forth from within, and defile the man.

1 Corinthians 8:8

8 But food commends us not to God; for neither, if we eat, are we the better; nor, if we eat not, are we the worse.

1 Timothy 4:4-5

4 For every creature of God is good, and nothing to be refused, if it be received with thanksgiving; 5 for it is sanctified by the word of God and prayer.

John 6:35

35 Jesus said to them: I am the bread of life. He that comes to me shall never hunger, and he that believes on me shall never thirst.

Romans 14:1-23

1 HIM that is weak in faith receive; not for the decision of disputes. 2 For one believes, that he may eat all things; but he that is weak eats herbs. 3 Let not him that eats despise him that eats not; and let not him that eats not judge him that eats; for God received him. 4 Who art thou that judgest another's servant? To his own master he stands or falls. But he shall be made to stand; for God is able to make him stand. 5 One man esteems one day above another; another esteems every day alike. Let each one be fully persuaded in his own mind. 6 He that regards the day, regards it to the Lord; and he that eats, eats to the Lord, for he gives thanks to God; and he that eats not, to the Lord he eats not, and gives thanks to God. 7 For none of us lives to himself, and none dies to himself. 8 For if we live, we live to the Lord; and if we die, we die to the Lord; whether we live therefore, or die, we are the Lord's. 9 For to this end Christ died, and lived, that he might be Lord of both the dead and living. 10 But why dost thou judge thy brother? Or why dost thou despise thy brother? For we shall all stand before the judgment-seat of God. 11 For it is written: As I live, saith the Lord, to me every knee shall bow, and every tongue shall confess to God. 12 So then, each one of us shall give account of himself to God. 13 Let us therefore no longer judge one another; but judge this rather, not to put a stumbling-block, or an occasion to fall, in a brother's way. 14 I know, and am persuaded in the Lord Jesus, that nothing is unclean of itself; but to him that accounts anything to be unclean, to him it is unclean. 15 But if because of food thy brother is grieved, thou no longer walkest in accordance with love. Destroy not him by thy food, for whom Christ died. 16 Let not then your good be evil spoken of. 17 For the kingdom of God is not food and drink; but righteousness, and peace, and joy in the Holy Spirit. 18 For he that in these things serves Christ, is well pleasing to God, and approved by men. 19 So then, let us follow after the things which make for peace, and things by which one may edify another. 20 For the sake of food destroy not the work of God. All things indeed are pure; but it is evil for that man who eats with offense. 21 It is good neither to eat flesh, nor to drink wine, nor anything whereby thy brother stumbles, or is made to offend, or is weak. 22 Hast thou faith? Have it to thyself before God. Happy is he that judges not himself in that which he allows. 23 And he that doubts is condemned if he eat, because it is not of faith; and all that is not of faith is sin.

1 Corinthians 10:31

31 Whether therefore ye eat, or drink, or whatever ye do, do all to the glory of God.
