Ecclesiasties 1:18 For with much knowledge comes much sorrow, the more knowledge, the more grief.

Ecclesiasties 12:12 Of making many books, there is no end, and much study wearies the body.

In Law, they speak of the burden of proof. In "Lord of the Rings" it was a burden to carry the ring.

The burden of knowledge is when man has too much knowledge. For example, 2006 is when english language surpassed one million words in the dictionary each having multiple definitions and many words having opposite meanings from the original words. Man's knowledge has grown exponentially since 1900. Because of this over abundance of words / knowledge came the many interpretations of the bible.

personally "burden of knowledge" Is some thing that fall's upon the shoulders of an educated or fully informed person as they have more information then you do and with that the responsibility to act accordingly i.e. if you invented the wheel or had the knowledge to invent the wheel then its up to you to teach people how to create and use the wheel I use this simple example as a wheel would benefit every one who used it whether to transport them self's long distance or to carry there heavy wares that's what "burden of knowledge" is to me when you posses knowledge that would impact peoples everyday life for the better or worse its up to you too share the information and educate people on how to use it properly.

I'm inclined to go with this answer.
"Perhaps this:? Ecclesiastes 1:18:"For in much wisdom is much grief: and he that increaseth knowledge increaseth sorrow."

I do believe that when you witness to another person about Jesus Christ, if that person refuses to receive Jesus Christ, you have placed them in more danger than before you witness to them.
Another word by increasing their knowledge you have increased their responsibility.

"burden of knowledge" ? Who's burden would that be? Where did the burden originate? Be careful what you give credence to, that phase means nothing, as to being relevant to our Father or His word.
According to the Father "The burden of the LORD shall you mention no more, for every man's word shall be his burden, for you have perverted the words of the living God. Thus shall you say to the prophet [of this so called burden], What has the LORD answered you? and, What has the LORD spoken? But since you say, The burden of the LORD, therefore thus saith the LORD, Because you say this word, The burden of the LORD.......I will bring an everlasting reproach upon you, and a perpetual shame,..."
See Jer.23:30-40

Yes I've heard this. The more knowledge we have about God and his word, the more he requires of us. And expects us to do. Until a person comes to the knowledge of God's word, they must abide by it. If they have no knowledge of God's word or even parts of it, God doesn't expect anything from that person. It has hard at times, giving the gift of discerning the spirits, knowning what God expects a person to do and they know to do it, but don't you just want to shake them to wake them up.

Jack: Because my beliefs come from scripture only. I do not follow manmade traditions and place them on the same plane as scripture. I don't believe it is really any more difficult than that. If one prefers to follow their church's tradition even when it directly conflicts with scripture, then I feel they are lost and need our prayers.

RESPONSIBILITY. I beleive this is speaking about with knowledge comes responsibility.

** Another possibility (but only my opinion) ...**


Debbie, how do you know for sure that YOU are not the one being falsely led? Because you say you're not?
---Jack on 11/15/07

Another possibility (but only my opinion) is that with the knowledge of salvation also comes the knowledge of those who are being falsely led (by false doctrine, etc.) and also the knowledge of sometimes those in one's own family not coming to Christ and knowing where they will one day end up. It can be overwhelming.

To me it means that you must spread the Good News of the Bible to people who have'nt heard it.
---Buddy on 11/14/07

As the term is being used here, it sounds like code word for somebody interfering in someone else's business.
---Jack on 11/14/07

Yes, It means the person has been given information by the Spirit, of certain things to pray for that have a tendency to weigh the person down if they get too personally involved with the knowleddge. It could be likened to the Spirit letting you know that terrorists are going to blow up a big bridge tomorrow. This could be a burden of knowledge to you.

It is terminology that is used by those in the Social gospel movement of which the emergent church/village falls under.
Burden of knowledge - being wise in your own eyes.

Pride goes before a fall.
