Hi, guys —

Why does Scripture say:

"For everything that is hidden will eventually be brought into the open, and every secret will be brought to light."

(Mark 4:22, Luke 8:17)

Eric replied:


Why Scripture says what it says is a mystery known only to God.

However, if you're looking for meaning, this verse refers to the Last Judgment when the secrets of men's hearts will be made manifest, and we will be judged on our intent and motivation.

Men judge by actions, but God judges the heart. An action that looks wrong to a man externally may, in light of the person's intent, actually be just. All our actions, and our intents behind them, will be manifest at the Last Judgment for all to see.
