It is not only the age of knowledge, but also of liberty for where God is, there is liberty. God is now manifest on earth, so there is liberty on earth as never before. The Holy Spirit is the supernatural Teacher of mankind and will lead man to full knowledge of truth. Knowledge will immensely increase on earth from now on. The combination of immense knowledge and liberty for man is a dangerous combination and can lead man into licentiousness. Man tends to use knowledge for selfish purposes and can end up using the liberty and knowledge for evil purposes as a result of his wanting to satisfy his greed, his glory and his desire for mundane things. Man must have knowledge. This is God's will for man. He will have liberty. This is also God's will for man. It is knowledge of truth that will set man free. God is here to teach us all things so that we know. These cover the knowledge of truth (God), our spirituality and relationship with God (religion), science, politics and economics. Man is to use these knowledge for the glory of God and a blessing to mankind. Former spiritual teachers of mankind did not impart the knowledge that will lead man to the truth. They could not do so because their knowledge of truth was limited. Only God can lead man safely to the godliness he must possess even with the full knowledge and liberty granted him by God. So God the Father is here to guide and direct man during this spiritual transformation from sinfulness to righteousness. Angels can not lead man safely. The Son cannot do so. So God the Trinity is manifest now in total unity: the Father, Son and Holy Spirit to lead this spiritual transformation of man and guide this transformation time in godliness of man even with the liberty and knowledge given to him by God. Saint Paul saw this period when full knowledge of truth shall be available to mankind on earth and he informed the Corinthians of his time. He admitted that he and other truth bearers only knew in part and only saw in the spiritual world darkly, not brightly enough to convey the perfect picture. He also knew spiritual truth in part and could not therefore express or transmit the utter truth to his hearers. (Ist. Corinthian 13:9-12) The good news is that He who is perfect in knowledge has come. Perfect and full knowledge of truth has come. The Holy Spirit is now on earth to impart this knowledge to man.
