Now concerning things offered to idols: We know that we all have knowledge. Knowledge puffs up, but love edifies. (1 Corinthians 8:1)
We, like the Corinthians, are often certain about things that are uncertain. They, for example, knew that eating certain things was wrong. They were wrong. I have found that there are few things that I can hold to with absolute dogma. There is absolutely nothing that I can hold to with arrogant dogma. The moment I do, God deals with my arrogance and reveals my ignorance. Knowledge truly has a tendency to puff up-especially among those who think that they may know something more than their peers. It often seems that those who have the least knowledge hold the most arrogant knowledge. Those who know the least know it the loudest. The only thing worse than a little knowledge is arrogant knowledge. Arrogance holds to an ignorant bias that is next to impossible to break. Knowledge without love is useless. Love even without knowledge is teachable. Knowledge puffs up, but love edifies.
