BUILD UP OTHERS IN LOVE
1 Corinthians 8:1-13
Key Verse: 8:3 “But the man who loves God is known by God”
1. What was another problem in the Corinthian church? (1a) Why was it a problem? In
what sense is love more important than knowledge? What can be the adverse effect
of knowledge? (1b) Who can be known by God? (2,3; 1Jn 4:7,8)
2. What knowledge is Paul talking about? (4-6) How did Paul apply this knowledge to
food sacrificed to idols? What was the problem of those who didn’t know this? (7)
What was Paul’s view of food? What brings us near God?
3. What is the danger of exercising Christian freedom without love, and why is this so
serious? (9-12) What was Paul’s personal resolution? What are some ways exercising
your Christian freedom can cause others to stumble? How can we avoid this?
