“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.”
King James Version (KJV)
8:4 We know that an idol is nothing - A mere nominal god, having no divinity, virtue, or power.
1Co 8:4 We know that an idol [is] nothing. Not a god, not even a living being. Only wood, stone, or metal.
