    To Joe - We have right to do certain things which in themselves are not wrong as God has permitted, however we should consider others whose faith might be weak for that your liberty and we should not let what is lawful for us become a stumbling block for them. What we do should build them up and help them in their walk with the Lord. Hope that helps.
