Do you remember the scene in the original “Grinch Who Stole Christmas” when the Grinch’s heart grew, after he observed the sweet spirit of the Whos, even after he tried to steal their Christmas? Boris Karloff’s voice booming… “In Whoville they say, the Grinch’s heart grew 3 sizes that day!” will forever be etched in my memory. That’s my favorite part!! When I was a child (back in the days when you could only watch it once a year) it was THIS scene that always caused MY heart to swell too.

I have read, re-read, and read again, I Corinthians 8-10, concerning food offered to idols. I realize greater minds than mine have contemplated this topic, but I have struggled to come to grips with it as well. It has bothered me for a long time because I have heard particular verses “unveiled” in ways I have felt uncomfortable with, and I really desire to understand what is truly going on here.
