Acts 21:25; 1 Corinthians 8:1; 1 Corinthians 8:4; 1 Corinthians 8:7; 1 Corinthians 8:10; 1 Corinthians 10:19; Revelation 2:14; Revelation 2:20

25 But as for the Gentiles who have believed, awe have sent a letter with our judgment that they should abstain from what has been sacrificed to idols, and from blood, and from what has been strangled,1 and from sexual immorality.


Food Offered to Idols

Now concerning1 mfood offered to idols: we know that nall of us possess knowledge. This knowledge opuffs up, pbut love builds up.


Therefore, as to the eating of food offered to idols, we know that tan idol has no real existence, and that uthere is no God but one.


However, not all possess this knowledge. But some, athrough former association with idols, eat food as really offered to an idol, and btheir conscience, being weak, is defiled.


10 For if anyone sees you who have knowledge eating1 in an idol's temple, will he not be encouraged,2 if his conscience is weak, to eat food offered to idols?


19 What do I imply then? That food offered to idols is anything, or that fan idol is anything?


14 But I have a few things against you: you have some there who hold the teaching of iBalaam, who taught Balak to put a stumbling block before the sons of Israel, so that they might jeat food sacrificed to idols and kpractice sexual immorality.


20 But I have this against you, that you tolerate that woman tJezebel, who calls herself a prophetess and is teaching and seducing my servants uto practice sexual immorality and uto eat food sacrificed to idols.
