"Knowledge puffs up, but love builds up" (1 Corinthians 8:1).

It is a mistake if devout folk suppose their connection to God obtains by means of things they know; the quality of their religious intelligence; their theological acumen. Never before has the world known as much as it does now. Yet, the knowing is not on its own enough to rid the earth of injustice. Far too often advanced education has served to multiply cruelty and suffering. There is a certain emptiness in knowledge, as suggested by the word 'puff.' But love! Love is foundation, substance, structure. love builds.
