New International Version

The man who thinks he knows something does not yet know as he ought to know.
The Amplified Bible

If anyone imagines that that he has come to know and understand much [of divine things, without love], he does not yet perceive and recognize and understand as strongly and clearly, nor has he become as intimately acquainted with anything as he ought or as is necessary.
Wuest’s Expanded Translation

Assuming that anyone thinks he has come to know anything, not yet has he come to know in a manner in which it is a necessity in the nature of the case to know.
Phillips’ Modern English

For if a man thinks he “knows” he may still be quite ignorant of what he ought to know.
Williams’ Language of the People

If a man supposes that he has already gotten some true knowledge, as yet he has not learned it as he ought to know it.

Worse Than Useless Knowledge
Neil Girrard
How we gain our knowledge is even more important
than what we know about God.
  1. Fearing Man; Lords of Darkness - Neil Girrard This ruler’s work lies in the realm of getting us to fear (respectfully obey) man rather than God, that is, obey any man or follow any tradition, philosophy or teaching of man rather than obey God.

  2. Knowledge and Truth - Neil Girrard - ( in Adobe/pdf format ) Knowledge can be a useful tool or a destructive weapon. How do we know what we have?

  3. Living Truth - Neil Girrard Lawlessness (doing what is right in one’s own eyes) has many subtle ways of diverting us from Christ.

  4. Maturing in Christ: Advice to New - and Old - Believers - Neil Girrard The path to spiritual maturity is not just a walk up an aisle or even an overnight journey. There are many things we need to observe in our spiritual journey toward God to be certain we don’t get off the path that leads to life.

  5. The Promise of Eternal Life - Neil Girrard - ( in Adobe/pdf format ) Juan Ponce de Leon’s pursuit of the fountain of youth in the 1500s is very comparable to modern “Christianity’s” ideas on how to gain eternal life.
