Take Heed Theological Student

"The very greatness of the subject matter (The Study of Theology) will intoxicate us, and we shall come to think of ourselves as a cut above the other Christians because of our interest in it and grasp of it; and we shall look down on those whose theological ideas seem to us crude and inadequate and dismiss them as very poor specimens."

J.I. Packer in the preface to 'Knowing God'

Packer warns students of theology to take heed lest they become conceited like the Corinthians.
