D. Keeping the Lord's Table from Idolatry
1. The Fellowship of the Lord's Blood and Body
14 1Therefore, my beloved, flee from 2aidolatry.
15 I speak as to prudent men; you ajudge what I say.
16 The acup of blessing which we bbless, is it not the 1fellowship of the cblood of Christ? The dbread which we break, is it not the 1fellowship of the ebody of Christ?
17 Seeing that there is 1one bread, we who are many are aone Body; for we all 2partake of the one bread.
18 Look at Israel aaccording to the flesh. Are not those who beat the sacrifices those who 1have fellowship with the 2caltar?
2. The Separation of the Lord's Table
from the Demons' Table
19 What then am I saying? That what is asacrificed to an idol is anything? Or that an idol is anything?
20 No, but that the things which the Gentiles sacrifice, they sacrifice to 1ademons and not to God; and I do not want you to become 2bthose who have fellowship with demons.
21 You cannot 1drink the Lord's acup and the demons' cup; you cannot partake of the Lord's btable and of the cdemons' table.
22 Or do we 1aprovoke the Lord to bjealousy? Are we cstronger than He?
