sacrifice.
 Demons are very real and avail themselves of man's imagination and his fears and arrogate to themselves the idol sacrifices. The emptiness of idols is therefore no ground for partaking of meats sacrificed to them. (Notes on 1 Corinthians 10:12-22 by W. Kelly)
 The Corinthians loved ease and sought to escape the cross. Why trouble, they might argue, about trifles? The idol is nothing, nor its sacrifices, nor its temple. How unwise then to offend for nothing! Communion with demons, answers the apostle, is the result. (Notes on 1 Corinthians 10:12-22 by W. Kelly)
