Therefore, if food makes my brother stumble, I will never again eat meat, lest I make my brother stumble. 1 Corinthians 8:13

This is the last verse of the chapter which has dealt with “things offered to idols.” However, right at the introduction of the thought, Paul divided that major subject into two over-arching issues.… Read the rest

But when you thus sin against the brethren, and wound their weak conscience, you sin against Christ. 1 Corinthians 8:12

This verse begins with “but” which is set in contrast to what he just said. The preceding verse asked, “And because of your knowledge shall the weak brother perish, for whom Christ died?” The answer is actually stated by Paul in an interesting way.… Read the rest

But beware lest somehow this liberty of yours become a stumbling block to those who are weak. 1 Corinthians 8:9

Paul has been speaking of “knowledge” concerning the issue of “things offered to idols.” He has clearly shown that eating something offered to an idol makes no difference at all and that the food is not defiled, because the idol is “nothing in the world.” This is an inescapable truth when clearly reasoned out.… Read the rest
