Jesus, the Great Physician, came speaking truthful messages God the Father provided. God provided the Bible and his Son Jesus, so we would know and speak the truth about God, and use the scriptures properly, guided by the Holy Spirit of God. Even with all this revelation, many understand God incorrectly. How could those with improper understanding know enough to be wise and keep silent? All people supposing to know God must be willing to search the Bible scriptures to test their understanding and to investigate what they hear from those who perhaps know better. Those who know better play a role to inform, challenge, and stretch their listeners to become mature in their knowledge of God, obedience to God, faith in God, and love for God. Without proper understanding, faith is shallow, love is misguided, supposed knowledge is deception, and obedience risks hypocrisy. With proper understanding, faith is deep and enduring, knowledge is nuanced and wisely applied, obedience reflects a new spirit, and love is fruitful and fulfills the law.

22 he reveals deep and hidden things; he knows what is in the darkness, and the light dwells with him.
23 To you, O God of my fathers, I give thanks and praise, for you have given me wisdom and might, and have now made known to me what we asked of you, for you have made known to us the king’s matter.”
