Sanhedrin 8-9 continues the debate between Rabbi Meyer and the Rabbis about whether accusing one’s wife of infidelity (dont know a nicer way of saying it) needs a court of judges of 3 or 23.
The debate scrolls down and comes to a fascinating statement. Normally, in order to be held responsible for doing a sin one must receive “warning” or “hasroah”. However, one opinion is that if the person is a “Chaver” or learned, the requirement of a warning is dispensed with.
Strange? Is not the law equal to all. ? The Shikkerdovid would like to use this as proof that we are all held to different standards: Our own capacity. Only Hashem knows what we are truly capable of. We cannot say, “most people do this or that so I will.” We must commit ourselves to be the best and strive in all things. Only Hashem knows what we are capable of and he judges each of us on our own ability.
