If one day we are to no longer see through a glass darkly, if we will progress to know God (Truth) better and better (you can never come to the end of this discovery) through eternity, then that means the written revelation we have now is only an elementary school primer, with so much more to seek and discover than we could find merely in its confines. This is where the Bible itself can become a sort of idol, something that we can latch onto so strongly as if it is all of God, and not daring to ask God and to seek what may lay beyond it.
I don't mean to suggest that we do the opposite and cast the Scriptures aside as inferior to our human reason or emotions; but to chastise fellow believers who would dare to seek God's truth and His heart on matters that are not explicitly explained or covered within the letters of the 66 books is an error as well. Our thirst for ALL of His Truth should not be discouraged, even if not all the answers are immediately forthcoming.
