1 Corinthians 8
Take Care with Your Liberty1 Now concerning a things sacrificed to idols, we know that we all have b knowledge. Knowledge ▼
▼ Lit puffs up, d makes arrogant, but love e edifies. 2 f If anyone supposes that he knows anything, he has not yet g known as he ought to know; 3 but if anyone loves God, he h is known by Him. 4 Therefore concerning the eating of i things sacrificed to idols, we know that ▼
▼ Lit nothing is an idol in the world; i.e. an idol has no real existencethere is k no such thing as an idol in the world, and that l there is no God but one. 5 For even if m there are so-called gods whether in heaven or on earth, as indeed there are many gods and many lords, 6 yet for us n there is but one God o the Father p from whom are all things and we exist for Him; and q one Lord, Jesus Christ r by whom are all things, and we exist through Him. 7 However not all men s have this knowledge; but t some, being accustomed to the idol until now, eat food as if it were sacrificed to an idol; and their conscience being weak is defiled. 8 But u food will not ▼
▼ Or presentcommend us to God; we are neither ▼
▼ Lit lackingthe worse if we do not eat, nor ▼
▼ Lit aboundingthe better if we do eat. 9 But y take care that this ▼
▼ Lit rightliberty of yours does not somehow become a stumbling block to the aa weak. 10 For if someone sees you, who have ab knowledge, dining in an idol’s temple, will not his conscience, if he is weak, be strengthened to eat ac things sacrificed to idols? 11 For through ad your knowledge he who is weak ae is ruined, the brother for whose sake Christ died. 12 af And so, by sinning against the brethren and wounding their conscience when it is weak, you sin ag against Christ. 13 Therefore ah if food causes my brother to stumble, I will never eat meat again, so that I will not cause my brother to stumble.
