Knowing the commands and prohibitions is not enough

Great quote from Joseph Hellerman's When the Church Was a Family:

Simply knowing the commands and prohibitions of Scripture has proven to be an insufficient defense against the powerful socializing influence of radical individualism in the lives of American Christians. Our churches are full of people…who know their Bibles, but persist in doing what they perceive to be best for them as individuals rather than what is biblical and most beneficial for the broader family of believers.
(Hellerman, When the Church was a Family, pg. 84-85)
