Chapter 8

Now as touching things offered unto idols, we know that we all have knowledge. Knowledge puffeth up, but charity edifieth.
idols Acts 15:20
charity 1st Cor 13:1, Eph 5:2, 1st Thess 3:6, 2nd Thess 1:3, 1st Tim 2:15, 1st Tim 4:12, 2nd Tim 2:22, 2nd Tim 3:10, 2nd Pet 1:7, 3rd John 6, Jude 12, Rev 2:19

And if any man think that he knoweth any thing, he knoweth nothing yet as he ought to know.
think Gal 6:3, 1st Tim 6:4

But if any man love God, the same is known of him.
known Exod 33:12, Nahum 1:7, Matt 7:23, Gal 4:9, 2nd Tim 2:19

As concerning therefore the eating of those things that are offered in sacrifice unto idols, we know that an idol is nothing in the world, and that there is none other God but one.
nothing Isa 41:24
none Deut 4:39, Isa 44:8

For though there be that are called gods, whether in heaven or in earth, (as there be gods many, and lords many,)
gods John 10:35

But to us there is but one God, the Father, of whom are all things, and we in him; and one Lord Jesus Christ, by whom are all things, and we by him.
one Mal 2:10, Eph 4:6
whom Acts 17:28, Romans 11:36
Lord Acts 2:36, Phil 2:11
things John 1:3, Col 1:16, Heb 1:2

Howbeit there is not in every man that knowledge: for some with conscience of the idol unto this hour eat it as a thing offered unto an idol; and their conscience being weak is defiled.

But meat commendeth us not to God: for neither, if we eat, are we the better; neither, if we eat not, are we the worse.
meat

But take heed lest by any means this liberty of your's become a stumblingblock to them that are weak.

For if any man see thee which hast knowledge sit at meat in the idol's temple, shall not the conscience of him which is weak be emboldened to eat those things which are offered to idols;

And through thy knowledge shall the weak brother perish, for whom Christ died?

But when ye sin so against the brethren, and wound their weak conscience, ye sin against Christ.
Christ Matt 25:40, Acts 9:4

Wherefore, if meat make my brother to offend, I will eat no flesh while the world standeth, lest I make my brother to offend.
