Knowledge: the body of truths or facts accumulated in the course of time. Dictionary.com
However, the Christian experience opens us to the Mind of Christ. Considering the beginning definition from the Christian perspective, knowledge is limited and finite. It is expanding rapidly in this age, but will never approach what is held in the mind of the Lord. Additionally, as Christians, we may divide knowledge into two components:
- Knowledge as the composite of data with which humans function in the natural world and upon which is constructed in ever-increasing complexity that stuff labeled scholarship or erudition.
- Carnal knowledge or the realm of understanding which springs from the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes and the pride of life.
