||Because of this, most beloved of mine, flee from the worship of idols.
||Since I am speaking to those who are prudent, judge what I say for yourselves.
||The cup of benediction that we bless, is it not a communion in the Blood of Christ? And the bread that we break, is it not a participation in the Body of the Lord?
||Through the one bread, we, though many, are one body: all of us who are partakers of the one bread.
||Consider Israel, according to the flesh. Are not those who eat from the sacrifices partakers of the altar?
||What is next? Should I say that what is immolated to idols is anything? Or that the idol is anything?
||But the things that the Gentiles immolate, they immolate to demons, and not to God. And I do not want you to become partakers with demons.
||You cannot drink the cup of the Lord, and the cup of demons. You cannot be partakers of the table of the Lord, and partakers of the table of demons.
||Or should we provoke the Lord to jealousy? Are we stronger than he is? All is lawful to me, but not all is expedient.
