Tools specific to 1Co 10:13

Think about the people of Israel. Weren’t they united by eating the sacrifices at the altar?

Tools specific to 1Co 10:19

What am I trying to say? Am I saying that food offered to idols has some significance, or that idols are real gods?

Tools specific to 1Co 10:20

No, not at all. I am saying that these sacrifices are offered to demons, not to God. And I don’t want you to participate with demons.

Tools specific to 1Co 10:21

Unchecked Copy Box 1Co 10:21

Unchecked Copy Box 1Co 10:22

What? Do we dare to rouse the Lord’s jealousy? Do you think we are stronger than he is?

Tools specific to 1Co 10:23

Unchecked Copy Box 1Co 10:23

You say, “I am allowed to do anything”[fn]—but not everything is good for you. You say, “I am allowed to do anything”—but not everything is beneficial.

(But suppose someone tells you, “This meat was offered to an idol.” Don’t eat it, out of consideration for the conscience of the one who told you.

Tools specific to 1Co 10:29

It might not be a matter of conscience for you, but it is for the other person.) For why should my freedom be limited by what someone else thinks?
