Gathering together all the chief priests and scribes of the people, he inquired of them where the Messiah was to be born. Matt 2:4 NASB
Herod believed enough in Scripture to inquire where they said the Messiah would be born, but not enough to shape his life according to its teachings.
A little religion can be a dangerous thing. We must know the full counsel of God’s Word.
