1 Corinthians 10:23-11:1
Paul continues his instruction on meat sacrificed to idols, which he began in chapter 8. Here, he helps the Corinthians navigate two challenging issues before the culture at large. How can they maintain a consistent witness about God alone deserving worship, while exercising their freedom to enjoy God’s good gifts? Must they investigate the history of every piece of meat that comes before them, to ensure that it has never been a part of a religious ritual? How can they be both faithful and free in this situation?
