People tend to be afraid, or intimidated, by knowledge. This is unfortunate. It seems truer that knowledge helps people deal with reality. The reality is that people will physically die. The reality is that all people have sin. The reality is that some will choose a godly approach for sin to be removed from their lives while others - won't care.
Christians are asked to think, or meditate, on godly things regularily. The purpose behind this is so our heart will not be consumed by evil; rather, goodness and godliness. "Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things" (Phillipians 4:8).
