    1Corinthians 10:15

    Early Christian Commentary - (A.D. 100 - A.D. 325)

    Anf-01 iii.ii.xii Pg 6
    Literally, “knowledge without the truth of a command exercised to life.” See 1 Cor. viii. 1.

    declares, “Knowledge puffeth up, but love edifieth.” For he who thinks he knows anything without true knowledge, and such as is witnessed to by life, knows nothing, but is deceived by the Serpent, as not330

    330 The ms. is here defective. Some read, “on account of the love of life.”

    loving life. But he who combines knowledge with fear, and seeks after life, plants in hope, looking for fruit. Let your heart be your wisdom; and let your life be true knowledge331

    331 Or, “true word,” or “reason.”

    inwardly received. Bearing this tree and displaying its fruit, thou shalt always gather332

    332 Or, “reap.”

    in those things which are desired by God, which the Serpent cannot reach, and to which deception does not approach; nor is Eve then corrupted,333

    333 The meaning seems to be, that if the tree of true knowledge and life be planted within you, you shall continue free from blemishes and sins.

    but is trusted as a virgin; and salvation is manifested, and the Apostles are filled with understanding, and the Passover334


    Anf-01 ix.iii.xxvii Pg 2
    1 Cor. viii. 1.

    not that he meant to inveigh against a true knowledge of God, for in that case he would have accused himself; but, because he knew that some, puffed up by the pretence of knowledge, fall away from the love of God, and imagine that they themselves are perfect, for this reason that they set forth an imperfect Creator, with the view of putting an end to the pride which they feel on account of knowledge of this kind, he says, “Knowledge puffeth up, but love edifieth.” Now there can be no greater conceit than this, that any one should imagine he is better and more perfect than He who made and fashioned him, and imparted to him the breath of life, and commanded this very thing into existence. It is therefore better, as I have said, that one should have no knowledge whatever of any one reason why a single thing in creation has been made, but should believe in God, and continue in His love, than3201

    3201 “Aut;” having been thus mistakenly rendered instead of “quam.”

    that, puffed up through knowledge of this kind, he should fall away from that love which is the life of man; and that he should search after no other knowledge except [the knowledge of] Jesus Christ the Son of God, who was crucified for us, than that by subtle questions and hair-splitting expressions he should fall into impiety.3202

    3202 [This seems anticipatory of the dialects of scholasticism, and of its immense influence in Western Christendom, after St. Bernard’s feeble adhesion to the Biblical system of the ancients.]

    1 Cor. xiv. 20, where Tertullian renders the ταῖς φρεσί (A.V. “understanding”) by “sensibus.”

    At the same time, with respect to the order of development in Wisdom, I have admitted6639

    that it flows from simplicity. In brief, “the dove” has usually served to figure Christ; “the serpent,” to tempt Him. The one even from the first has been the harbinger of divine peace; the other from the beginning has been the despoiler of the divine image.  Accordingly, simplicity alone6640

    6640 i.e., without wisdom.

    will be more easily able to know and to declare God, whereas wisdom alone will rather do Him violence,6641

    6641 Concutere.

    and betray Him.

    1 Thess. v. 21. [But Truth is to be demonstrated as a theorem, not treated as a problem of which we must seek the solution.]

    as if, after proving all things amiss, one might not through error make a determined choice of some evil thing.
