“And this I pray, that your love may abound still more and more in real knowledge and all discernment” (Philippians 1:9).

A knowledge of scripture is accomplished and proved out by neither the accumulation of empirical data or the establishment of historical fact. That one is truly knowledgeable of God’s word, and its role in the life of faith, is authenticated by an abounding love, along with the other qualities of the fruit of the Spirit being borne out of one’s life. You can study the bible, as you would a theological textbook, and excel in the classroom while failing miserably the litmus test of real knowledge—love.
