 There are fools in colleges and fools in cottages





Between the ignorant man who cannot read a letter, and the learned man who is apt in all knowledge, there is small difference if they are both ignorant of Christ; indeed, the scholar’s folly is in this case the greater of the two. The learned fool generally proves himself the worst of fools, for he invents theories which would be ridiculed if they could be understood, and he brings forth speculations which, if they were judged by common sense and men were not turned into idiotic worshippers of imaginary authority, would be scouted from the universe with a hiss of derision.

There are fools in colleges and fools in cottages.



-----------



Sometimes the more men know the greater fools they become; for knowledge is not wisdom, though wisdom cannot be without knowledge. Knowledge in the hands of a fool is but a means of publishing his folly.




-----------------



He is the greatest fool of all who pretends to explain everything, and says he will not believe what he cannot understand.



------------------


Spurgeon

there is a saying that goes something like this:



Wisdom has been rightly divided, everyone thinks they have enough of if

 Re:

1 Cor 1v25, 'Because the foolishness of God is wiser than men, and the weakness of God is stronger than men.'

Foolish and weak? What a position for man to be in. To be foolish and weak, and too foolish and weak to admit it. In need of God and denying his need.

In the colleges and in the cottages. Thought provoking. Thanks.

Spurgeon makes it clear like few others can!
