The concept of knowledge
God gave us a mind that can receive knowledge.
But He wanted us to know what is useful and of benefit to us, and also what may be of use and benefit to others; whether individuals or groups.
However, the problem that faced man from the beginning was that he wanted to know everything, even to know evil. The first man knew only good, but when he ate from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil he knew also evil and thus caused harm to himself.
Be sure of the soundness of any knowledge you receive. Be sure of its benefit before accepting it.
Know also that knowledge is not a goal in itself but a means for your benefit. So choose this kind of useful knowledge.
