Several questions factor into decisions here:
- Are idols, in reality, anything real? Of course not.
- Does the participation in worship to something that is imaginary somehow taint or alter the quality of the meat? No.
- Is a person wrong for making connections that aren't there?
- Should knowledge of the truth or relationship the most important thing in these decisions?
- Do I always insist on what I know to be true, regardless of the impact of the truth on someone else?
