The Art of Loving (1 Corinthians 8)

The study of 1 Corinthians is a particularly interesting study in that there are so many sections that have been misunderstood. Chapters 8-10 of this letter are also a section of this book that is misunderstood. I think if asked for a summary of chapters 8-10 the general consensus would be that it is about meat sacrificed to idols. With that lens we would likely ignore this section of the scriptures because we do not have this issue today. We do not have to worry about meat sacrificed to idols. We do not have to worry where our meat came from. Our meat comes from the grocery store. But this is not really what this section of 1 Corinthians is about… So as we start this study of these three chapters of 1 Corinthians, I want us to try to erase any preconceived ideas about this text and read it with fresh eyes and a fresh mind.
