    SEV Biblia, Chapter 8:11

    Y por tu ciencia se perder el hermano dbil por el cual el Cristo muri.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - 1 Corinthians 8:11

    Verse 11. Shall the
    weak brother perish] Being first taught by thy conduct that there was no harm in thus eating, he grieves the Spirit of God; becomes again darkened and hardened; and, sliding back into idolatry, dies in it, and so finally perishes.

    For whom Christ died?] So we learn that a man may perish for whom Christ died: this admits of no quibble. If a man for whom Christ died, apostatizing from Christianity, (for he is called a brother though weak,) return again to and die in idolatry, cannot go to heaven; then a man for whom Christ died may perish everlastingly. And if it were possible for a believer, whether strong or weak, to retrace his steps back to idolatry and die in it, surely it is possible for a man, who had escaped the pollutions that are in the world, to return to it, live and die in its spirit, and perish everlastingly also. Let him that readeth understand.


    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 11. And through thy knowledge , etc.] These words contain an aggravation of the sin such persons are guilty of, who are the means, by their example, of ensnaring weak minds, and causing them to stumble and fall, even in some sense so as to perish: shall the weak brother perish, for whom Christ died ? every word almost carries in it an exaggeration of this matter; it is not some slight injury that is done to the person, but even causing him to perish; and this is not said of any person, but a brother, to whom the strongest affection, and strictest regard, should be shown; and a weak brother, of whom the greater care should be taken; and therefore it is an instance of cruelty to do damage to such an one, and that not ignorantly, which cannot be pretended, but through thy knowledge; not through the true use, but abuse of it: those that have knowledge should know better, and improve it to the edification, and not the destruction of fellow Christians; and all this done in a case of indifference, that might as well be let alone, of which there was no necessity for the doing of it: but what aggravates most of all is, that this affects a person for whom Christ died; that he had such a value for as to purchase and redeem with the price of his own blood; and yet these men made so little account of, as by so trifling a thing to risk their good and welfare. Some would from hence conclude the doctrine of universal redemption, that Christ died for all men, even for them that perish; but it should be observed, that the words are put by way of interrogation, and prove no matter of fact, even supposing they could be understood of eternal ruin and destruction; and at most only imply the danger and possibility thereof through offences given, were they not preserved by the power and grace of God through Christ, who died for them, and so will not suffer them to perish; though this is no thanks to them who lay stumblingblocks in their way, and, as much as in them lies, cause them to perish, in this sense: besides, the perishing of this weak brother is to be understood of his peace and comfort, and is explained by defiling his conscience, ( 1 Corinthians 8:7) by wounding it, ( 1 Corinthians 8:12) and making him to offend, ( 1 Corinthians 8:13) through an imprudent use of Christian liberty in those who had the greater knowledge, and by a participation of things offered unto idols, in an idols temple, and not of his eternal damnation in hell; which could never enter into the apostles thought, as to be brought about hereby, as appears from ( 1 Corinthians 8:8) and so is no proof of Christs dying for such as perish eternally: for those for whom Christ has died, he has by his death procured such blessings for them, as a justifying righteousness, pardon of sin, peace with God, reconciliation unto him, and eternal salvation, which will for ever secure them from perishing in such sense.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 7-13 - Eating one
    kind of food, and abstaining from another, have nothing in them to recommend a person to God. But the apostle cautions agains putting a stumbling-block in the way of the weak; lest they be mad bold to eat what was offered to the idol, not as common food, but as sacrifice, and thereby be guilty of idolatry. He who has the Spirit of Christ in him, will love those whom Christ loved so as to die for them Injuries done to Christians, are done to Christ; but most of all, the entangling them in guilt: wounding their consciences, is wounding him We should be very tender of doing any thing that may occasion stumblin to others, though it may be innocent in itself. And if we must no endanger other men's souls, how much should we take care not to destro our own! Let Christians beware of approaching the brink of evil, or the appearance of it, though many do this in public matters, for whic perhaps they plead plausibly. Men cannot thus sin against their brethren, without offending Christ, and endangering their own souls __________________________________________________________________

    Vincent's NT Word Studies

    11. Shall the
    weak brother perish (apollutai o asqenwn). Not a question, as A.V. The participle "he that is being weak" indicates a continuance of the weakness, and the present tense, is perishing, implies that the process of moral undermining is in progress through the habitual indulgence of the better informed Christian. Rev., he that is weak perisheth.
