Food Sacrificed to idols @Philip Keiter Here is what you requested it took me a while because I had to create a couple of new words and add some things and changed the last verse to make sense with the rest of the things he has been saying. So, in 1 Corinthians 10 I flipped its ok to eat to no its not here I didn't have to do that and only changed the last verse. I added verse 6 and 7 because I think it gives it a smoother transition than going from 5 to 8 let me know what you think. Verse 1 But now for you to learn all the knowledge we have of the things sacrificed to idols. The son of darkness’s knowledge creates pride within you which leads to arrogance, but the Son of Light’s delight in obedience created you. Verse 2 If you think you have a good opinion because of your personal experience from your carnal nature, then you do not realize that you have not learned what is necessary (which is the knowledge from above.) Verse 3 But if you delight in obedience to the Father of the Children of Light then you are under His authority. Verse 4 Therefore, concerning the eating of things sacrificed to idols we recognize that there are no nothing idols and no nothing gods in the world and not just one, Verse 5 for also if indeed exist the gods they have many commands from heaven to the earth and not only that but there are many gods and many lords, Verse 6 they all speak of the things they have made and who they have killed and how they hate this god or that human and how they have warred against each other and operate in hate, envy, jealousy, and wrath over trivial matters and how they were able to kill the ones who gave them life. And if they could kill the ones who gave them life where they really gods who could create all things? Verse 7 For if you don’t even have the knowledge to stop someone who is in rebellion to you how can you say you created everything and have all knowledge? And if you do not have all knowledge, how can you call yourself a god and crown yourself king of the gods and men? Then they made laws to follow and for men to follow their law. Verse 8 Therefore, if no nothing idols made of wood, stone, and metal make laws for men to follow. Isn’t it logical that they just copied and tried to replace the True Creator of All things and His LAW of Life and Light, to lead men away from The Way and instead to death? Verse 9 For is wood, stone, or gold alive that it can lead you to Life, so if they are dead and have no life in them, do they not also lead you to what they are which is dead? Verse 10 However, for us there is only One Creator and Master, the Father, whom all things were created by His command and we were created to be in union with Him and we have, the Son of Light, YAHUW by whom all things were created and executed and because of His successful mission we can delight in complete obedience to the Father. Verse 11 But not all have this wisdom. And until now some have made it a habit to eat meat sacrificed to idols and do not realized that because their conscience is weak it leads them to become defiled. Verse 12 But all food forbidden by YAHUWAH’s LAW will not let you stand or appear in the presence of YAHUWAH. If you do not keep His complete LAW, you will be left behind to suffer because you have chosen to abandon being a vessel of His abundant Truth. Verse 13 And you should recognize that you should not use the authority that you have received from above to become a stumbling block to those without the power of our future Promised Salvation. Verse 14 For if anyone can identify you as one of the Children of Light that possess the personal knowledge from above and that you have plain understanding of the Day of Judgement and that by no means no one will be judged by their own conscience and that he has no leg to stand on that day. Help him to stand and show him that the result of sacrificing to idols is hate toward YAHUWAH that will cause him to be consumed in the Eternal fire. Verse 15 For cut off is the one without the power of our Promised Salvation, because within he doesn’t not have the personal knowledge of YAHUWAH that you have, so help him to stand because for his sake The Son of Light died so that he can become one with the Father. Verse 16 Brother or sister in this manner, we commit lawlessness against The Son of Light when we don’t teach them to develop their children of darkness’s weak conscience into a conscience worthy of The Great LIGHT, YAHUWAH. Verse 17 The only thing I care about is the success of the Truth therefore if it’s necessary I will always tell them what is lawful and what is not so that food will not be a trap to my brother or sister and I shall make sure to only eat meat that is proper, so that I will be an example for all my brothers and sisters to follow.
