Paul does not give ANY power to or behind any idol. Why? Because there is no power in idols. Be it the idols Paul was referring to, or any other idol they or we may have, because there is only God. Paul was trying to show the people the powerlessness of idols to the point he would actually partake of that which was offered to idols knowing all the prayers they (pagans) may have made to these idols meant absoulely nothing, just empty words to a non-exsistent powerless god.
Paul claims idols are nothing. God is.


Put up asteroth up in your home and you'll find out. :thumbsup

yes, eating meat offered up to a idol is harmless because the only God exist. Not the smae as partaking with idolatry.

So are you saying, if I got an idol of Ashtoreth, Astarte Ashtar or as we call her, Easter ( carved wooden dead doll representing a mythical/non-existant goddess) something would happen because it has some sort of power? Huh?
And too, the eating of that meat WAS partaking of idolatry to the people back then. It was not just bringing the idolotrous into a home, but actually ingesting it into ones body. Which is worse?
