‘Jesus said, “Now this is eternal life: that they may know You, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom you have sent (John 17:3)
In reality this is where true knowledge begins.
The person who knows God and fears Him possesses something more valuable than all the combined knowledge of philosophy and science put together. The scientist and philosopher may discover ways to improve this life; the Christian has found the way to eternal life.
That the Christian’s knowledge is more valuable was attested by Jesus when He said, “What good is it for a man to gain the whole world, yet forfeit his soul? Or what can a man give in exchange for his soul?” (Mark 8:36)
