Knowledge of the heart is primary

Note 9-20-2016. Paul describes transformational knowledge in 1 Corinthians 8:1-3. “The man who thinks he knows something does not yet know as he ought to know. But the man who loves God is known by God.” v.2-3.

“A humble self-knowledge is a surer way to God than a search after deep learning.” Thomas a Kempis. Knowledge that builds us up is knowledge that is rooted in love. Knowledge is a gift from God to be used for good and godly ends. Some theologians call this transformational knowledge; knowledge of self that leads to loving concern for others. End note.

This meditation on Colossians 2:1-8 describes three types of knowledge that are essential for planning and implementing TE: knowledge of the heart, knowledge of sin, and empirical knowledge of the world.  May you be blessed as you consider them.
