Don’t let young believers doubt your relationship with God because of your conduct

As one who have been in the Lord longer, don’t let young believers doubt your relationship with God because of the places you go or the things you do.
1 Corinthians 8:9-12 But you must be careful so that your freedom does not cause others with a weaker conscience to stumble. For if others see you-with your “superior knowledge”-eating in the temple of an idol, won’t they be encouraged to violate their conscience by eating food that has been offered to an idol? So because of your superior knowledge, a weak believer for whom Christ died will be destroyed. And when you sin against other believers by encouraging them to do something they believe is wrong, you are sinning against Christ.
