Someone has said that, What you don’t know won’t hurt you. We all know that it’s incorrect and yet it seems that many people have adopted that philosophy toward spiritual matters. Nothing could be further from the truth!

Too often we equate ignorance with one who is simple-minded or backward. But some of the most talented people in the world, some of the greatest minds in science, are spiritually ignorant.
