THE LORD’S PRAYER
REMEMBERING THE SAINTS
SCRIPTURE & SERMON Rev. Steve
Radical Christianity: Radical Spirituality; 1 Corinthians 8:8-13 NET
Now food will not bring us close to God. We are no worse if we do not eat and no better if we do. But be careful that this liberty of yours does not become a hindrance to the weak. For if someone weak sees you who possess knowledge dining in an idol’s temple, will not his conscience be “strengthened” to eat food offered to idols? So, by your knowledge the weak brother or sister, for whom Christ died, is destroyed. If you sin against your brothers or sisters in this way and wound their conscience, you sin against Christ. For this reason, if food causes my brother or sister to sin, I will never eat meat again, so that I may not cause one of them to sin.
1 Corinthians 8:8-13 NET
