1 Corinthians 8:6-8 New Life Version (NLV)
6 But we know there is only one God. He is the Father. All things are from Him. He made us for Himself. There is one Lord. He is Jesus Christ. He made all things. He keeps us alive.
7 Not all men know this. They have given food as a gift in worship to a god as if the god were alive. Some men have done this all their lives. If they eat such food, their hearts tell them it is wrong. 8 Food will not bring us near to God. We are no worse if we do not eat it, or we are no better if we eat it.
