1 Corinthians 8:1 - 9:15

1 Corinthians
1 CorinthiansSteve Gregg

In his examination of 1 Corinthians 8:1-9:15, Steve Gregg emphasizes the importance of considering the impact of one's actions and avoiding stumbling blocks, even if one has the liberty to do something. Paul distinguishes between stronger and weaker believers, reminding Christians that their behavior can affect the perception of outsiders and weaker believers. Love must be the primary motivation for behavior, even when one has knowledge, and there is only one God and one Lord Jesus Christ. Furthermore, Paul defends his apostleship and encourages others to follow his example in laying aside their rights for the sake of the gospel.
