Food Sacrificed to Idols

Scripture Passage: 1 Corinthians 8:1-13

Idol worship was so prevalent in Corinth that practically all food sold in public places had been sacrificed to an idol. It was customary on some social occasions to gather for a meal in a pagan temple. The Christians needed guidance about whether eating such food defiled them. We should have our own conviction on these matters. However we should be careful not to offend others by doing in their presence what they consider wrong. It is better to forgo my "right" than cause another Christian's faith to be shaken. Efforts should be made to help the weak Christian so that he can start enjoying his freedom.

1. A man who loves God is known by whom?
2. How is an idol seen in the passage?
It is seen as nothing in the world.
3. What should we be careful about?
In exercising our freedom, we do not become a stumbling block to our weaker brothers.

Memory verse: 1 Corinthians. 10:32
Don't give offense to Jews or Gentiles or the church of God. (NLT)
