2 Nephi 27:11

"And the day cometh that the words of the book which were sealed shall be read upon the house tops; and they shall be read by the power of Christ; and all things shall be revealed unto the children of men which ever have been among the children of men, and which ever will be even unto the end of the earth."
2 Nephi 27:11

This is scary and exciting all in one. :) ALL things shall be revealed. Wow. So cool... to be able to learn the truth of everything. Much better than a history textbook. Especially because the verse includes "will be" as well as "have been." ... we get to know the future. :) I like the idea of full disclosure, and nothing being hidden in the dark. I've never really been a fan of "need-to-know" information stinginess. I can just imagine all the cool things that we can imagine and do once we really do have *all* the information available to us. ... However, the concept is also scary in a way. This also means that things that *we* hide from people won't be hidden anymore. The parts of ourselves and our past that we aren't especially proud of will also be in plain view. ... I think it is okay, but it does mean that we should be working on honesty, and on owning who we are... the past as well as now. Learn how to admit our mistakes and move on. God knows it all already, and he still cares about us. ... And I think that as we all strive to become like God, hopefully we learn about that as well. Acceptance, and working with people and loving them despite their faults. Today, maybe we can remember that eventually people are going to know everything about us, and get a head start on being able to accept and embrace that.
