Herod will forever be the model of those who make inquiries about religion, but who never act rightly on the knowledge they receive. Like train announcers, they know all the stations, but never travel. Head knowledge is worthless, unless accompanied by submission of the will and right action.
Inquiries about religion do not produce the same results in all hearts. What men ask about Divinity is never as important as why they ask it.
—from Life of Christ by Fulton Sheen, Ch. 2: Early Life of Christ
