These notes are from Saturday evening from our youth retreat last weekend. On Saturday evening Adam Tyson spoke from 1 Corinthians 8:1-13: A Lesson on Living & Learning.
Adam gave 3 reasons why libertines thought it was okay to eat meat sacrificed to idols:
1. We know we have all knowledge. (v. 1-3)
Knowledge makes us arrogant and puffs us up.
Does knowledge puff you up or draw you to love?
2. We know that an idol is nothing. (v. 4-6)
Other Passages: Isaiah 42:8; Acts 17:24-25; Psalm 115:4-8
3. We know that food is not an issue with God. (v. 8-13)
We need to be sure we use our liberties for love's sake and not for selfish gain. For more on Christian liberties check out this previous post.
Grace upon grace,
