(20) O Timothy, guard what is laid up in trust with you, turning away from the empty speeches that violate what is holy and from the contradictions of the falsely called "knowledge." (21) For making a show of such [knowledge] some have deviated from the faith. May the undeserved kindness be with YOU people.
If anyone thinks he has acquired knowledge of something, he does not yet know [it] just as he ought to know [it].
And if I have the gift of prophesying and am acquainted with all the sacred secrets and all knowledge, and if I have all the faith so as to transplant mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing.
