“Ever learning and never able to come to the knowledge of truth” 1 Timothy 3:7

Philosophically, human beings are said to be the must confused and clueless beings on earth, this is because, we have devoted our existence to seek and to find the secrets and workings of the universe, but despite our efforts, we (man) are still not close to fathoming the truth about the universe. Even though we have the ability to learn and know, man is confronted with the mysteries in the universe that portrays the fallibility of human intellectualism. as man seek knowledge, he founds doubt, thus we (man) “learns” but unable to come to the “knowledge of truth.” The reason for this is however not far fetched; we have disconnected ourselves from the source of all knowledge; Almighty God, the creator and author of the universe. In the words of Tom Zagan, “wisdom is using knowledge through God’s perspectives.” for this reason, Apostle Paul admonishes us in his letter to Timothy that we shouldn’t just study and learn in confusion, but rather in the appreciation of God’s wisdom and power of creation, so that God the Almighty will reveal to us the essences of the created universe and also crown our knowledge with his wisdom. Remember, “The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom: Proverbs 1:7
