Re: 1 Cor 10:20, “they sacrifice to demons”

Off topic question: "what he told them earlier that the food is not tainted by having been offered to an idol because the idols do not represent anything real (i.e., the pagan gods do not exist)" is not the kosher and non-kosher thing related to metaphysical? you dont eat this type of meat...
