I have a serious, non-judgy question, and I apologize if it doesn't come across the right way. Also, I apologize if this is something discussed before.
Why is there so much secrecy in the Mormon religion? I have been reading some books lately, and one of them mentioned that several documents are restricted, and only someone with Temple Recommend is allowed to access them. Additionally, the whole Temple thing, where only certain people can enter.
I am really, genuinely curious about this.
