Over-Valuing Knowledge at the Expense of Faith

I want to know as much as I can, but I think in our current Mormon culture we over-value knowing and under-value believing and having faith.

I believe in absolute truth, but I don't believe we have the ability to understand it very well. In other words, I believe we see through a glass, darkly - and all that is required of us is to live according to whatever we are able to see, regardless of how accurate it is in comparison to absolute truth.

Accepting that simple belief has set me free in a very real way - to open my mind to the possibility of finding truth in everything around me, including faith traditions I can't accept fully.
