Curiosity — is it bad?

Recommended Posts

Positive, according to Ecc 3:10, 11

I have seen the occupation that God has given to the sons of men to keep them occupied.  He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has even put eternity in their heart; yet mankind will never find out the work that the true God has made from start to finish.


And we're going to need curiosity to keep us enjoying searching for answers for all eternity.



A Never-Ending Quest

Science is in search of answers, but all too often one set of answers leads to another layer of puzzles. This fact calls to mind a profound statement recorded in the Bible at Ecclesiastes 3:11. It reads: “Everything [God] has made pretty in its time. Even time indefinite he has put in their heart, that mankind may never find out the work that the true God has made from the start to the finish.”

Of course, at present we can absorb only limited amounts of knowledge because of our short life span, and much of that knowledge is speculative, subject to change. But that situation is temporary, for God has purposed to grant faithful humans endless life in Paradise on earth, where they can examine his handiwork for an eternity and thus gain true knowledge.—Psalm 37:11, 29; Luke 23:43.

I think Gregexplore's Signature is good here:


'Man was created as an intelligent creature with the desire to explore and understand'..:)

One small crack doesn't mean you are broken; it means that you were put to the test and didn't fall apart..
