Pursuing Knowledge vs. Pursuing Life

"It may be my reader will desire me to say how the Lord will save him from his sin. That is like the lawyer's question, 'Who is my neighbor?' . . . Such questions spring from the passion for the fruit of the tree of knowledge, not the fruit of the tree of life."
- George MacDonald
