Fox News interviewed a former Islamic extremist and his view on the global Islamic problem is that the world has failed to hold darker skinned, people of color, to a higher standard. In essence, the world gives darker skinned people a pass as though we can’t expect anything more from them…which he found offensive. It occurs to me that we do something similar in the church. We give one another a pass simply on the basis of being a believer. And yet, the writer of Hebrews stressed we are capable of a higher standard, “In fact, though by this time you ought to be teachers, you need someone to teach you the elementary truths of God’s word all over again. You need milk, not solid food! Anyone who lives on milk, being still an infant, is not acquainted with the teaching about righteousness. But solid food is for the mature, who by constant use have trained themselves to distinguish good from evil” (Heb 5:12-14 NIV).
