Ecclesiastes 1:18, Ignorance Is Bliss

For with much wisdom comes much sorrow; the more knowledge, the more grief.

//Here’s a troubling topic. Is learning contrary to Godliness? Let me give you a couple more verses:

Your wisdom and knowledge mislead you (Isaiah 47:10)

For the wisdom of this world is foolishness in God’s sight. (1 Corinthians 3:19)

Maybe it’s time to shut The Dubious Disciple down, and encourage everyone to frolic in ignorance? Or maybe there’s another side to the coin.

The advantage of knowledge is this: that wisdom preserves the life of its possessor. (Ecclesiastes 7:12)

Ah, so knowledge isn’t all bad! Knowledge is good, but one must rightfully divide true knowledge from false knowledge:

Turn away from godless chatter and the opposing ideas of what is falsely called knowledge (1 Timothy 6:20)

OK, I’ll continue operating The Dubious Disciple until it becomes clear what is true and what is false. Hang in there, this may take awhile.
