Do not partake in food offered to idols

Author: Monica Koch

1 Corinthians 10:15-22

Did not the joining in the Lord's Supper show a profession of faith in Christ crucified, and of adoring gratitude to Him for His salvation?

Children of God, by this ordinance, and the faith therein professed, were united as the grains of wheat in one loaf of bread, or as the members in the human body, seeing they were all united to Christ, and had fellowship with Him and one another.

The apostle applies this to feasting with idolaters. Eating food as part of a heathen sacrifice, was worshipping the idol to whom it was made, and having fellowship or communion with it. People partaking of the Lord’s Supper, are solemnly set apart to the service of the Lord Jesus; they acknowledge Him as their Lord, and dedicate themselves to Him, and that as they could not and ought not to be devoted to idols and to the Lord Jesus at the same time, so they ought not to participate in the feasts in honour of idols, or in the celebrations in which idolaters would be engaged.  Eating food sacrificed to idols, was denying being a child of God; for communion with Christ, and communion with devils, could never be had at once.

If Christians venture into places, and join in sacrifices to the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eye, and the pride of life, they will provoke God.
