“The Glory of God Is Intelligence”

Doctrine and Covenants 93:36

36 The glory of God is intelligence, or, in other words, light and truth.

President Joseph F. Smith said:

“If you love the truth, if you have received the gospel in your hearts and love it, your intelligence will be added upon; your understanding of truth will be expanded, larger than in any other way. Truth is the thing, above all other things in the world, that makes men free. . . . If you will learn the truth and walk in the light of truth you shall be made free from the errors of men . . . ; you will be above suspicion and above wrong-doing of every description. God will approve of you and bless you. . . .

“It isn’t all that is necessary, to learn the truth or to cease to be ignorant. Following that comes the application of the understanding and knowledge that we gain, to those works and things that are needful for our protection and for the protection of our children, our neighbors, our homes, our happiness.

“Search out the truth of the written word; listen for and receive the truth declared by living prophets and teachers; enrich your minds with the best of knowledge and facts. Of those who speak in His name, the Lord requires humility, not ignorance. Intelligence is the glory of God; and no man can be saved in ignorance [see D&C 93:36; 131:6].”

(Teachings of Presidents of the Church: Joseph F. Smith [1998], 314, 318–19.)
