Knowledge Puffeth Up - Mental Assent Is Not Enough

Many have chosen to follow a knowledge alone and claim it to be a relationship with God. They do not actually know Him, but they just know about Him. They do not know the Bible, but they know about the Bible. They reject the Holy Spirit and His gifts and replace them with mere mental assent. The danger of merely having knowledge is that it puffs one up and does not produce the fruit of the Spirit that comes from a true relationship with God. We need to have knowledge and reason, but mere mental assent is not enough. A true relationship with God produces more than just head knowledge about Him and His word, it produces a new person full of the Spirit and power of God, which are things that cannot be learned.
