1 Corinthians 8:1-13, NLT
1 Corinthians 8
Food Sacrificed to Idols
1Now regarding your question about food that has been offered to idols. Yes, we know that “we all have knowledge” about this issue. But while knowledge makes us feel important, it is love that strengthens the church.
4So, what about eating meat that has been offered to idols? Well, we all know that an idol is not really a god and that there is only one God.
There is one God, the Father,
by whom all things were created,
and for whom we live.
And there is one Lord, Jesus Christ,
through whom all things were created,
and through whom we live.
7However, not all believers know this. Some are accustomed to thinking of idols as being real, so when they eat food that has been offered to idols, they think of it as the worship of real gods, and their weak consciences are violated.
9But you must be careful so that your freedom does not cause others with a weaker conscience to stumble.
