Among Christians there seem to be many differences on how they view good and evil. They tend to be either legalistic (following rules taught by men) or licentious (violating God’s rules). Both of these are wrong.
There is another difference: that is the difference between infancy and maturity. There are many Christians who need to be taught elementary truths all over again. Much of my time is spent in this occupation.
However, it is not the amount or depth of teaching that makes a Christian mature. A mature Christian is one who has his “faculties trained by practice” (RSV) or by “constant use” (NIV) to “distinguish good from evil.”
If we spend our time practicing, we will be able to eat with the varsity at the training table of solid food.
