Food Sacrificed to Idols

(One of God’s Great Mysteries)

A spiritual book by Glenn Hall

{1} Now concerning things offered to idols: We know that we all have knowledge.
Knowledge puffs up, but love edifies. {2} And if anyone thinks that he knows
anything, he knows nothing yet as he ought to know. {3} But if anyone loves God,
this one is known by Him. {4} Therefore concerning the eating of things offered to
idols, we know that an idol is nothing in the world, and that there is no other God
but one. {5} For even if there are so-called gods, whether in heaven or on earth
(as there are many gods and many lords), {6} yet for us there is one God, the
Father, of whom are all things, and we for Him; and one Lord Jesus Christ,
through whom are all things, and through whom we live. {7} However, there is not
in everyone that knowledge; for some, with consciousness of the idol, until now
eat it as a thing offered to an idol; and their conscience, being weak, is defiled.
{8} But food does not commend us to God; for neither if we eat are we the better,
nor if we do not eat are we the worse. {9} But beware lest somehow this liberty of
yours become a stumbling block to those who are weak. {10} For if anyone sees
you who have knowledge eating in an idol’s temple, will not the conscience of him
who is weak be emboldened to eat those things offered to idols? {11} And because
of your knowledge shall the weak brother perish, for whom Christ died? {12} But
when you thus sin against the brethren, and wound their weak conscience, you sin
against Christ. {13} Therefore, if food makes my brother stumble, I will never
again eat meat, lest I make my brother stumble. (1 Cor 8 NKJV)
