1 Corinthians 8 deals with yet another dispute in the Corinthian church. Some in the church came out of a background where idol worship was a significant part of their lives. Some of these new Christians felt completely uncomfortable eating food that had been offered to idols in worship by other people, while others thought it was completely ok to eat the food. So who was right? It turns out that those on the “right” side of the argument were those who understood that it didn’t matter whether the food had been used in worship or not. However, these folks were also warned that their correct belief could harm their more sensitive brothers and sisters if they were arrogant or insensitive with those whose conscience was sensitive. This text is a caution to our church. Sometimes we can be right in an argument and end up being completely wrong.
