How To Gain Godly Knowledge

Who is the source of all right knowledge?

"For the LORD gives wisdom, and from his mouth come knowledge and understanding" (Proverbs 2:6, New International Version).

God is the great Educator! In a real sense salvation is largely a matter of education. The world is filled with false values, so there is an obvious need to recapture biblical values. Reliable knowledge of these true values comes from only one source—God's Word, the Holy Bible. God communicates His standards to us through the Scriptures.

Yet it must be said here that, although God's Revelation, the Holy Bible, is the foundation of all right knowledge, it does not contain all knowledge. Other useful fields of human knowledge may be built upon that sure and sound foundation.

All deceptive knowledge—knowledge not built upon God's Word—will ultimately fail and disappear.

What is one vital key to obtaining the knowledge of God?

"My son, if you receive my words, and treasure my commands within you, so that you incline your ear to wisdom, and apply your heart to understanding; yes, if you cry out for discernment, and lift up your voice for understanding, if you seek her as silver, and search for her as for hidden treasures; then you will understand the fear of the LORD, and find the knowledge of God" (verses 1-5).
