Pastor Youssef and love for God vs knowledge of the Word of God (Theology).

Michael YoussefI am listening to Pastor Youssef of “Leading the Way” Ministries. He is beginning a six part series entitled “to Know Jesus is to Love Him.” Yet, he begins by stating that “head knowledge” about Christ is not enough to have a good relationship with Him. This is a false dichotomy!
How can we KNOW Christ without knowing His Word? Jesus Himself says: “if you love me, you will keep my commandments.” How can we know what His Commandments are, if we do not know His Word? Jesus also says: “Now this is eternal life – that they know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom you sent.” (‭John‬ ‭17‬:‭3‬ NET). This implies that we will spend eternity growing in our knowledge of God.The only place we can KNOW about the Father and the Son NOW, however, is in the Word of God.. And the more we get to KNOW them, the more we get to LOVE them. Paul says this is to be a growing knowledge: …”so that you may live worthily of the Lord and please him in all respects – bearing fruit in every good deed, growing in the knowledge of God, (‭Colossians‬ ‭1‬:‭10‬ NET).
It is therefore a gross error to stress one’s emotional Love for God apart from the objective knowledge of Him through His Word, and imply that our love for God can grow or be increased through some kind of a mystical desire void of biblical content. 
Biblically/theologically speaking, love is an objective choice to obey the “objective” truths of Scripture. In this case, feeling FOLLOW actions, not the basis or reason for them. 
What say ye, “Teleiogs?”
