1 Corinthians 1:10-11 Now I exhort you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that you all agree, and there be no divisions among you, but you be made complete in the same mind and in the same judgment. 11 For I have been informed concerning you, my brethren, by Chloe’s people, that there are quarrels among you.

Christians in Corinth Those who felt it was wrong to eat Those who felt it was okay to eat They did not eat, but were troubled by those who did They ate in spite of thinking it was wrong and their conscience was troubled They ate without regard to the feelings of others They limited their liberty from concern for other brothers
8:1 A call to limit liberty for the sake of the weaker brother 9:19:15 An example of this type of limited liberty seen in Paul’s limitation of his liberty to be paid in the ministry Paul has the right to be paid in ministry Paul has limited his liberty for the sake of the Corinthians
1 Corinthians 9:24-25 24 Do you not know that those who run in a race all run, but only one receives the prize? Run in such a way that you may win. 25 And everyone who competes in the games exercises self- control in all things. They then do it to receive a perishable wreath, but we an imperishable.
1 Corinthians 9:26-27 26 Therefore I run in such a way, as not without aim; I box in such a way, as not beating the air; 27 but I buffet my body and make it my slave, lest possibly, after I have preached to others, I myself should be disqualified.
For I do not want you to be unaware, brethren, that our fathers were… (10:1) All under the cloudAll under the cloud All passed through the seaAll passed through the sea All were baptized into Moses in the cloud and in the seaAll were baptized into Moses in the cloud and in the sea All ate the same spiritual foodAll ate the same spiritual food All drank the same spiritual drinkAll drank the same spiritual drink Nevertheless, with most of them God was not well-pleased; for they were laid low in the wilderness (10:5).
1 Corinthians 10:11-12 11 Now these things happened to them as an example, and they were written for our instruction, upon whom the ends of the ages have come. 12 Therefore let him who thinks he stands take heed lest he fall.
1 Corinthians 10:13 No temptation has overtaken you but such as is common to man; and God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation will provide the way of escape also, that you may be able to endure it.
