....then how does one learn to recognize a false educational idea? Our universities are rampant with them. In Canada we try to keep a balance between teachers of national origin and teachers of other nationalities and foreign philosophies. Entering a university here requires a great ability to sift.

Do you rely upon your spirituality to help you discern truth from error, or your knowledge? Where does wisdom and understanding fit? I would say discernment is a spiritual gift that includes knowledge, understanding, and wisdom. My favorite, most intriguing scripture comes from Proverbs 9:10, "The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom: and the knowledge of the holy is understanding."

Then, wisdom and understanding must be God's knowledge, and to discern truth from error would require spirituality because it would come as inspiration from God. To be able to receive inspiration from God, one must be spiritual. So it behooves each of us to keep our spiritual channels open by following the plan of happiness as set out in the scriptures: Ecclesiastes, Job, 10 commandments, sermon on the mount, and all the rest.
