Now regarding your question about food that has been offered to idols. Yes, we know that “we all have knowledge” about this issue. But while knowledge makes us feel important, it is love that strengthens the church.
(1 Corinthians 8:1 NLT)
You can know the Bible inside out, but that isn’t enough. Knowledge is no good if it just stays in the head – it’s what you do with the knowledge that matters.
God is love, and that is what the Bible is all about. It is love that strengthens the Church, in a lot of ways – love will strengthen it by making new believers.
If I don’t have love I’m just a crashing cymbal, no matter how much I ‘know’.
What I know, what I learn from reading the Bible, has to make a difference in me so that I can make a difference.
