Little Lamb...<quoted text>
I was going to let this go..because I find you argumentative..but when I realize your calling Paul an apostate..it made me feel a revulsion for what you are prepared to do, to justify your stance..its sickening
20 But that we write unto them, THAT THEY ABSTAIN FROM POLLUTIONS OF IDOLS, and from fornication, and from things strangled, and from blood.
29 THAT YE ABSTAIN FROM MEAT OFFERED TO IDOLS, and from blood, and from things strangled, and from fornication: from which if ye keep yourselves, ye shall do well. Fare ye wel'
The only other thing Paul told us we could do, was if we were invited to the house of unbelievers we were to eat what was set before us, asking no question...making no inquiry where it came from
The moment someone stated that it was meat offered to idols..Paul tells us not to eat it.
so he was true to the commandment.
Its just like Paul we know idols are nothing and have no power..but silly people think they do, so once it is stated that the meat was sacrificed to idols..thats the end of any eating of it for us...because of the conscience that others have.
and we still keep the commandment to abstain from things offered to idols
neither Paul nor ourselves disobey that command .
Paul has never contradicted the commandment
Show us that Poul explicit forbide Christians to eat meat which has been used in and as sacrifices to idols, the only reservation was if it would hurt anothers consciense and the person would stumble... then Paul would abstainfrom eating meat.. not in opposite case...?
He stated clearly that Gods Kingdom was not a question of etings..
What told Jesus his follower not to eat when they pay visits in idolaters and Gentiles homes... Any precorsions or prohibitions in the Scripture... Luke 10:8..?
