New Testament considerations on food (2)

 

untitled

Sung Psalm 21:1-6

Read   I Cor.10:14-33

Paul has most to say under the inspiration of the Spirit about food and the O.T. food laws. In this chapter he addresses whether it is sinful to eat food that has been offered or consecrated to idols.

Verse 16 speaks of the religious significance of the Lord’s Supper which pictures union with Christ and one another. Verses 18 to 20 expose any continued O.T. Christ-less sacrifices and those of all pagan religions as idolatry and actually demonic.

Verses 25 and following basically state, “buy what you like and eat what you like but take care not to offend.”
