Abstract This article demonstrated two points. (1) 1 Cor 8: 8 is a Corinthian slogan, because it offers a theistic justification for eating idol-meat that is repudiated by Paul. For him Christology provided the only valid criterion. (2) The correct text of v. 8 is the minority reading of A*, namely, ‘we are no better off if we not eat, and no worse off if we do’. The Strong who ate without consideration for the Weak pointed out that the spiritual gifts of the latter were not increased, and that their own charisms were not diminished.
