1 Corinthians 10 - KJV
The idolatry in the wilderness
1 Moreover, brethren, I would not that ye should be ignorant, how that all our fathers were under Ex. 13:21the cloud, and all passed through Ex. 14:22;Ps. 78:13the sea;
2 And were all baptized unto Moses in the cloud and in the sea;
3 And did all eat the same Ex. 16:15;Ps. 78:24spiritual meat;
5 But with many of them God was not well pleased: for they Num. 14:29;Ps. 106:26were overthrown in the wilderness.
7 ver. 14Neither be ye idolaters, as were some of them; as it is written, Ex. 32:6The people sat down to eat and drink, and rose up to play.
8 Rev. 2:14Neither let us commit fornication, as some of them committed, and Ps. 106:29fell in one day three and twenty thousand.
9 Neither let us tempt Christ, as Ex. 17:2,7some of them also tempted, and Num. 21:6were destroyed of serpents.
10 Neither murmur ye, as Ex. 16:2some of them also murmured, and Num. 14:37were destroyed of Ex. 12:23the destroyer.
12 Wherefore Rom. 11:20let him that thinketh he standeth take heed lest he fall.
13 There hath no temptation taken you but such as is [d]common to man: but ch. 1:9God is faithful, Ps. 125:3;2 Pet. 2:9who will not suffer you to be tempted above that you are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it.
14 Wherefore, my dearly beloved, 2 Cor. 6:17flee from idolatry.
15 I speak as to ch. 8:1wise men; judge ye what I say.
Prohibition of idol feasts
16 Mat. 26:26The cup of blessing which we bless, is it not the communion of the blood of Christ? Acts 2:42The bread which we break, is it not the communion of the body of Christ?
17 For ch. 12:27we being many are one bread, and one body: for we are all partakers of that one bread.
18 Behold Rom. 4:12Israel Rom. 4:1;2 Cor. 11:18after the flesh: Lev. 3:3are not they which eat of the sacrifices partakers of the altar?
19 What say I then? ch. 8:4that the idol is any thing, or that which is offered in sacrifice to idols is any thing?
20 But I say, that the things which the Gentiles Lev. 17:7;Deut. 32:17;Ps. 106:37sacrifice, they sacrifice to devils, and not to God: and I would not that ye should have fellowship with devils.
21 2 Cor. 6:15Ye cannot drink the cup of the Lord, and Deut. 32:38the cup of devils: ye cannot be partakers of the Lord's table, and of the table of devils.
22 Do we Deut. 32:21provoke the Lord to jealousy? Ezek. 22:14are we stronger than he?
Do all to the glory of God
23 ch. 6:12All things are lawful for me, but all things are not expedient: all things are lawful for me, but all things edify not.
24 Rom. 15:1,2;ch. 13:5Let no man seek his own, but every man another's wealth.
25 1 Tim. 4:4Whatsoever is sold in the shambles, that eat, asking no question for conscience sake:
26 For Ex. 19:5;Ps. 24:1the earth is the Lord's, and the fulness thereof.
27 If any of them that believe not bid you to a feast, and ye be disposed to go; Luke 10:7whatsoever is set before you, eat, asking no question for conscience sake.
28 But if any man say unto you, This is offered in sacrifice unto idols, eat not ch. 8:10,12for his sake that shewed it, and for conscience sake: for Deut. 10:14;Ps. 24:1the earth is the Lord's, and the fulness thereof:
29 Conscience, I say, not thine own, but of the other's: for Rom. 14:16why is my liberty judged of another man's conscience?
31 Col. 3:17;1 Pet. 4:11Whether therefore ye eat, or drink, or whatsoever ye do, do all to the glory of God.
33 Even as Rom. 15:2I please all men in all things, ver. 24not seeking mine own profit, but the profit of many, that they may be saved.

This sermon is about how the use of electronic communication is changing us. The last point has to do specifically with our cyber talk. A lot of the sermon is based on this article: “Six Ways Your Phone Is Changing You” Article by Tony Reinke, desiringGod.org
