460. Is it OK to eat meat sacrificed to other gods?


A little meat never hurt anybody. Besides, the other gods don't exist.
As concerning therefore the eating of those things that are offered in sacrifice unto idols, we know that an idol is nothing in the world, and that there is none other God but one. ... But meat commendeth us not to God: for neither, if we eat, are we the better; neither, if we eat not, are we the worse. 1 Corinthians 8:4-8
Eat whatever is set before you or is sold at the store, asking no questions for conscience sake.
Whatsoever is sold in the shambles, that eat, asking no question for conscience sake. 1 Corinthians 10:25

If any of them that believe not bid you to a feast, and ye be disposed to go; whatsoever is set before you, eat, asking no question for conscience sake. 1 Corinthians 10:27


The other gods are devils. You can't eat at the devil's table and at the Lord's.
But I say, that the things which the Gentiles sacrifice, they sacrifice to devils, and not to God: and I would not that ye should have fellowship with devils. Ye cannot drink the cup of the Lord, and the cup of devils: ye cannot be partakers of the Lord's table, and of the table of devils. 1 Corinthians 10:20-21
Don't eat meat sacrificed to idols, for for conscience sake.
But if any man say unto you, This is offered in sacrifice unto idols, eat not for his sake that shewed it, and for conscience sake: for the earth is the Lord's, and the fulness thereof. 1 Corinthians 10:28
