Are Love and Knowledge Opposed?

Are Love and Knowledge Opposed?

Based on Philippians 1:9

Are 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.

I am a Christian who desires to serve in God's kingdom in the best way possible. I have served as a foreign missionary in southern Mexico. I have worked as a youth minister at my local church of Grace Baptist in Dickson, TN. I have also recently begun to write books with a desire to help others grow in life. I hope that they are helpful and effective in doing that. I have been married to Alicia Spencer since 2003. We have six children and give thanks to God for all of them.
