1 Corinthians 8
Food Sacrificed to Idols - Freedom With Responsibility

1. What’s the big deal about food sacrificed to idols?

2. In 50AD at the Council at Jerusalem, there was much discussion about what should be required of Gentiles to become a Christian. Peter, Paul, James, and the others finally agreed on four requirements for Gentiles. They are... (Acts 15:20)

3. Summarize what Paul is saying verses 8:1-3. (1 Timothy 6:4)

4. Verse 8:3 seems almost to be an afterthought, but may be the most important verse of all. Explain. (Psalm 1:6, Jeremiah 1:5, Galatians 4:9, 1 John 4:7-8)

5. Verse 8:6 is a basic statement of Christianity. Let’s trace this building of the Christian faith from the Old Testament to the New Testament. (Deuteronomy 4:35, Isaiah 46:9, Malachi 2:10, John 1:3, John 13:13, 1 Timothy 2:5, Ephesians 4:5-6)

6. Paul’s central theme in Verses 7 to 13 might be summed up as “Freedom with Responsibility.” How would you explain this in your own words. (Romans 14:13)

7. What are some similar situations today? In other words a situation where one Christian thinks it is wrong to do something, you “know” it is not wrong, but doing it in front of the other person might cause him to stumble.

8. Is there a potential backlash here? If all Christians behave in a way that conforms to the beliefs of the “weakest” one, isn’t that like everyone having to slow down to the speed of the slowest car on the road? Should we “knowledge-able” ones try to educate the other believers? (Matthew 18:6, Romans 14:21, Galatians 5:13)
