Knowledge Puffs Up but Love Builds Up



1 Corinthians 8:1



Context Summary
First Corinthians 8:1–13 begins Paul’s longer response to the question of attending functions in idol temples or eating food offered to idols. This appears to blend Paul’s own statements with references to the Corinthians’ own remarks. It seems the Corinthians had previously written to Paul saying they are not ”worshiping” the idols. They know idols don’t really exist and that only God is real. Paul replies that the problem here is not lack of knowledge but lack of love. Some brothers and sisters in Christ cannot eat idol food with clear consciences. Those who are stronger risk leading those who are weaker into sin and, in that way, sinning themselves.
