How do we know things? What do you know? How do you know that’s true? What makes you think you know? What can we know for sure? What can we know by examining the evidence and coming to a reasonable conclusion? How many of the things that you know end up being false? If we have to change our direction because what we thought we knew was wrong, does that mean we can’t know things at all?
People discuss and argue about these questions all the time. They study knowledge, and the acquisition of it, truth and whether or not we can know it, what’s real and what’s not. They have official sounding names for these studies and theories. What it points out to me is that what is and what we think about what is may be different. What is true and what we think is true may be different. However, What is and what is true, doesn’t depend upon the knowing of it. If something is true, it is true whether we know it or not. The knowing of it just makes it mine.
The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge; fools despise wisdom and instruction. Proverbs 1:7
