Interesting! With the command in Corithians not to take part ...

in idol festivals, this puts a whole new spin on why Paul advised one to be careful what you do in the market in front of others, believer or not.

He does continue to use the marriage analogy, even through the discussion of eating meat offered to idols, with it being permitted in some cases:(ie {I Cor. 10:23 - 31}, if purchased in the market, not eaten at an idol feast, and not in front of a weaker brother whose conscience will not permit him to).(I Cor. 10:14 - 22) The contrast is especially strong when he writes (vs 22) "Are we trying to arouse His jealousy? Are we stronger than He?", in reference to actually attending one of these 'feasts'.
