Are Love and Knowledge Opposed?
Based on Philippians 1:9Are love and knowledge opposed one to the other? Is knowledge but of arrogance the mother? Love, ‘stablished first, elemental to all life, Ought we stop there and not recruit unnecessary strife? Is love essentially simple? Compounded may it thrive? To seek to add upon this base, Is this in vain to strive? Or could it be that harmony be reached between the two? If knowledge puffeth up your heart, And love no more room finds, You can be sure your steps have erred, The right path left behind. But if you nourish love with truth And knowledge of right kind, ‘Twill draw your heart to God more near And to your brother bind.
