hebrews 5 12 14
Hebrews 5:12-14

For though by this time you ought to be teachers, you need someone to teach you again the first principles of the oracles of God; and you have come to need milk and not solid food. 13 For everyone who partakes only of milk is unskilled in the word of righteousness, for he is a babe. 14 But solid food belongs to those who are of full age, that is, those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil.

Discernment
  • Due to a lack of spiritual growth, some lacked the ability to “Discern.” (Ephesians 4:18-19)
  • The Bible specifies many sins – 1 Corinthians 6:9-11; Galatians 5:19-21; Ephesians 5:3-5; etc.
  • However, the Bible does not specifically list each individual sin one might commit.
  • The Bible provides the principles by which one CAN discern good from evil.

19 Now the works of the flesh are evident, which are: adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lewdness,20 idolatry, sorcery, hatred, contentions, jealousies, outbursts of wrath, selfish ambitions, dissensions, heresies, 21 envy, murders, drunkenness, revelries, and the like; of which I tell you beforehand, just as I also told you in time past, that those who practice such things will not inherit the kingdom of God.
