Wesley's Notes for 1 Corinthians 8:6


8:6 Yet to us - Christians. There is but one God - This is exclusive, not of the One Lord, as if he were an inferior deity; but only of the idols to which the One God is opposed. From whom are all things - By creation, providence, and grace. And we for him - The end of all we are, have, and do. And one Lord - Equally the object of divine worship. By whom are all things - Created, sustained, and governed. And we by him - Have access to the Father, and all spiritual blessings.


People's Bible Notes for 1 Corinthians 8:6


1Co 8:6 But to us [there is but] one God. To Christians, there is but one divinity, one object of worship, the true and living God. One God, the Father, instead of the "gods many"; one Lord, Christ, instead of the "lords many" of heathenism (1Co 8:5), one God, and one Mediator between man and God (1Ti 2:5).

    Verse 3: If a person truly loves God, by obeying his commandments, this one is truly known and acknowledged by God.
  • Ray321
    1 Corinthians 8:12 But when ye sin so against the brethren, and wound their weak conscience, ye sin against Christ. I want to thank the Father for the Holy Spirit that lives inside me and guiding me when I read the Bible. I also pray that I don't hurt anybody by word of wisdom of myself, for I know it will go against Christ. Peace
  • A disciple
    Just because someone points out something [that's true] doesn't make him unloving or impatient! If I didn't care about the well being and spiritual safety of my brothers and sisters in the Lord, I wouldn't say anything! The more we mature in the Lord, the more we should be able to discern right and wrong spirits, and the faster will the alarms go off when something false or evil is near. Peace!
  • Ray321
    1 Corinthians 8:2 And if any man think that he knoweth any thing, he knoweth nothing yet as he ought to know. sometimes we need to have patience and listen to God's word, rather then do something to offend a brother or sister in Christ. Not everyone is going to know the whole Bible, therefore we must have patience with others with Love. The Holy Spirit will guide us in truth. Amen
