At one time, conventional wisdom in the scientific community as well as in the church said that the earth was flat, until Galileo declared that the earth was not flat, but round. Galileo was arrested and questioned for his belief until he was vindicated by explorers sailing around the entire earth without falling off the greatly feared edge and conventional wisdom changed.
Some knowing is wrong and does not lead to more knowing. This type of knowing must be unlearned or unknown. Unknowing a knowing can be quite painful, especially if you have known it for a while. But it is imperative to question all knowing on the journey to greater knowing. Christ did not come to destroy the people's knowing; He came to expand upon their knowing, to add better ideas to ideas that were already good. Conflict arose when the good ideas refused to make room for the better ideas, when the knowing would not make room for more knowing.
Divine truth is ever flowing and ever unfolding to us and through us. Once we embrace the idea that truth is ever flowing, our desire for truth will help to align our spirits with the flow of truth. Knowledge is always incomplete and ever increasing. Knowing is stymied when we eliminate room for more knowing. So, make room for more knowing and try not to kill the instrument that carries it. There is always more to know.
