“You cannot drink the cup of the Lord and the cup of demons too; you cannot have a part in both the Lord’s table and the table of demons.”1 Corinthians 10:21
Peace and good to all.
If I may share my thoughts on the above Bible passage.
We cannot serve two masters. There is no middle ground. There is no neutral ground in spiritual matters. It is either we are for the Lord our God or we are not. That, I think is the message of this verse.
When we accept Jesus as our saviour and completely surrender our life to Him, we are reborn and while we are in this world, we are no longer of this world. Hence when we do our respective things everyday we are guided by the Holy Spirit so that we will know the things of the Lord as opposed to the things of the god of this mundane world.
There would be times that we would be tempted to link the sinful things of this world to the things with our faith in God, be mindful. We cannot mingle the earthly way with the ways of God. No amount of justification can link the things of this sinful world to the things commanded by God.
We humans ore weak by nature but with constant prayer and daily dose of the word of God, coupled with our faith in God, the Holy Spirit would guide us to always choose the cause of God. My friends, it is dangerous to try to remain neutral in spiritual matters, as destruction is sure to follow.
