Do all things without grumbling or disputing; so that you will prove yourselves to be blameless and innocent, children of God above reproach in the midst of a crooked and perverse generation, among whom you appear as lights in the world.

Since they were such spiritually successful believers, seeking to distinguish themselves in the Lord’s service, they were in danger of falling into the religious world.
