1 Corinthians 13:4-8

4Love is patient, love is kind and is not jealous; love does not brag and is not arrogant,

5 does not act unbecomingly; it does not seek its own, is not provoked, does not take into account a wrong suffered,

6 does not rejoice in unrighteousness, but rejoices with the truth;

7 bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.

8 Love never fails; but if there are gifts of prophecy, they will be done away; if there are tongues, they will cease; if there is knowledge, it will be done away.


I have always had a bit of a problem with the last part, because it sounds like a rejection of knowledge and learning and an endorsement of ignorance. The reasoning has been explained to me as this: Since all knowledge is partial and finite, it is less than perfect and therefore it should be discarded for the perfection of love.

But since perfection is unattainable (and I don't know if it is even desirable), the preference of ignorance to knowledge (less than perfect as it will always be) seems to me to be short sighted and counter-productive.
