1 Corinthians 8

This chapter deals with the division in the Corinthian church over food offered to idols. 

v1-3 – The core issue at stake is love in action is better than knowledge leading to arrogance on the basis of freedom.

v4-6 – Some believers know idols are nothing and there is only one God. The implied conclusion is “eat up.”

v7-12 – Some believers do not have this knowledge, and their faith is harmed. Those whose knowledge correctly grants them the freedom to eat food offered to idols are only to do so when love for their brethren precedes freedom in Christ.

v13 – Loving right is superior to being right. In other words, what you believe can be right, but how you behave can be totally wrong.
