Do you discriminate? Before you answer, “Of course not,” know that I’m not talking about bigotry, but discriminating between good and evil.

Here’s what St. Diadokos of Photiki says:

The light of true knowledge is the power to discriminate without error between good and evil. Then the path of righteousness leads the intellect upward towards the Sun of Righteousness and brings it into the boundless illumination of spiritual knowledge, so that henceforward it will grow more and more confident in its quest for love.

So you see, the full Christian life requires true discrimination.
