    It is not Breno's responsibility to inform people what they are eating. It is the responsibility of the person with dietary restrictions to verify beforehand what they are eating. Also, Breno's team leader may be a non-practicing Muslim, in which case, eating pork may not even be an issue.

    I have to admit that is pretty lol worthy, I once had a Vegitarian friend come over and I make a mean home made salad but I also drenched it in her favorite vegitarian ranch so you could hardly see much. and as a joke I put some small bacon bits in there and when she had done eating the salad she asked me what i did this time to make it so amazing, she said there was a delicious flavor in it she has never tasted before and I told her about my prank.

    Sadly her suddenly pale face told me I am not good at jokes

    True, but if I had thought of it I would've told him. Another guy in the team who is a hindu who doesn't eat pork or beef didn't eat it, I can't remember the interaction between him and I think I told him...
    As for my team leader, he's not really practicing, he is but isn't. I think it's like those people who say they're catholic but go to church at Easter and Christmas.

    I'm not going to tell him, as I said for his conscience sake. We are a small tight team and I don't think anyone else will tell him.
    But if they were too, him and I have good repore, If I were to explain what happened and my reasons for not saying he would listen and understand if he really cared too much at all.

    But from what I've gathered, he's never eaten pork until now lol... Actually he probably has without realising it.

    2. This verse you quote has nothing to do with the context of the OP

    This verse is about causing other "CHRISTIANS" to stumble through imposition of STUPID LAWS... just has nothing to do with the OP.

    OK, I get that it was an accident on your part, but I wouldn't go waving it in your coworkers face. If you're ever going to win him for the kingdom, ridiculing his current beliefs is not what to do.

    This is a fairly good example of a scripture being taken completely out of context to try to prove a point.

    I would not willingly try to trick someone into violating his or her conscience, and the OP obviously did not, either. But that scripture is talking about how we, as Christians, should not use our understanding of our freedom in Christ to put a stumbling block in the way of a new believer in Christ.
    ...or anybody else.
    Any stumbling block that causes one to stumble causes one to be deceived (the opposite to truth and love).

    I don't believe saying one single comment is 'waving it in their face' considering It was brought to my attention hours later, nor is it ridiculing his belief, a situation said the funny part that I / we found is that he went for seconds, not the fact that he ate pork initially. And out of respect for his belief, I have chosen not to say anything for his own conscience.

    Thought I might just clear it up again...

    after hub's and my 'conversion', we were just personally 'convicted' to NOT eat PORK, from
    the scriptures that we had read about how the pagans desecrated God's Holy /Temple/Altar by
    offering their pagan sacrifices upon it, which happened to be 'pork', hog, swine'...

    it's just a personal thing... although we have noticed over the years, that many take
    offence of this, and 'some' have even tried to 'trick us' into eating pork, which they all ready
    knew that we didn't eat, into some of the dishes that they served/gave to us...this broke our hearts...
    but, we never held this against them...

    And that's perfectly acceptable

    Those who worship the Lord on a special day do it to honor him. Those who eat any kind of food do so to honor the Lord, since they give thanks to God before eating. And those who refuse to eat certain foods also want to please the Lord and give thanks to God.
    Romans 14:6 NLT

    While that is a good, Christ-like way to live, it still is NOT what that scripture was talking about.

    That is called "taking scripture out of context".....

    When scripture says to greet one another with a holy kiss, we shouldn't pull it out of context to say that we need to go around kissing everyone. We need to read, and keep, scripture in context.

    and, we, as followers of Jesus, should have it as a part of our "Christian DNA" to not ever knowingly try to convince anyone to violate their conscience. Whether it be eating a specific meat, or ANY meat, or drinking alcohol, or smoking cigarettes, or celebrating Halloween, or observing Sabbath beliefs.....

    And he looked at me with wide eyes and said, "You know..." pointing towards our team leader who is a muslim.

    I gasped and realised I didn't think anything of it until he mentioned it, feeling a bit bad but then I laughed out loud and said, "HE WENT BACK FOR SECONDS!" hahaha
    Haahahahaha now that is hilarious.....when he realizes he is doomed to hell for it.....witness about Jesus.....very sly bro hahahahahahahaahaah

    Exactly what I thought.......how many just yank a verse and hang it on an incident so far out of context that it is not even on the same page.......one of the reasons Christianity is losing it's affect and power.....

    That is an odd name for food products, considering the fact that using the term "sanitarium" is a polite way of saying looney bin
