“A little knowledge is a dangerous thing.” (Is that in the Bible? It ought to be. Smiley-face goes here.)
Here’s one that is: “I am also convinced that you yourselves are full of goodness, filled with all knowledge, and able also to admonish one another.” That’s Romans 15:14, and we sure wish we knew whether the Apostle Paul had tongue firmly planted in cheek when he said this or was dead serious. It appears to us that the recipients of this Roman letter, as with so many of the others Paul wrote, were deficient in some areas of knowledge of spiritual things. We’re glad they were, of course, because in addressing these issues for them, Paul ended up instructing us.
One wonders what it must be like to be “filled with all knowledge.”
After all, “knowledge puffs up” (I Corinthians 8:1). Modern translations say, “knowledge makes arrogant.”
Ignorance does too, oddly enough. In fact….
Ignorance coupled with arrogance makes for a deadly combination. When you see that monster coming down the road, get out of the way because it bloodies everything it touches.
