What Good is Such Learning?

John Knox statue, Haddington“But I did tell those learned men–and learned they are, far beyond my education–What good is such learning? I told them, if it keeps you from learning the truth of God’s Word?  Better to be simple and foolish and correct than to be learned and wise in the eyes of the world, and yet so wrong that ye are consigned to everlasting hell!”

~a fictional John Knox in Crown of Fire by Craig & Janet Parshall, page 141-142

    • The quote is from a work of fiction, and that is the character John Knox speaking in the book…it is historical fiction so I don’t know if the real John Knox ever said that or not.
