"For the word of the Lord is truth, and whatsoever is truth is light..."

See?

“…there are millions out there for whom thinking would indeed be a challenge. And that is why it is possible for one person to lead millions into busy lives with inactive minds. Listen to the horrendous illogic that sounds forth from the gatekeepers of our culture when they try to make a case against the sacred. The aurgumentative capacity of talk-show hosts who make moral pronouncements against morality is exceeded only by a pathetic inability to build a sound argument. The move from unsubstantiated premises to invalid deductions consistently color their faulty thinking, and what is more, the same fallacies get transmitted to uncritical hearers. Assertions claiming truth frequently go uncorroborated, and the arguments that are built show a complete disregard of validity. One can only shake one’s head in disbelief and marvel at how mushy our thinking has become. The science and art of critical thinking have been humiliated in a generation that thinks with its eyes. — Ravi Zacharias, Deliver Us from Evil, p. 140

Too Wise?

“There are a great many wise men and women too in our midst who are too wise to be taught; therefore they must die in their ignorance, and in the resurrection they will find their mistake. Many seal up the door of heaven by saying, So far God may reveal and I will believe.” — Joseph Smith (D.H.C., Vol. V, p. 424)
