mysteries of God, revelation, the Spirit, the Holy Ghost
LDS discourse commonly uses the term mysteries to refer to truths that we don’t know or shouldn’t worry about. But the scriptures—and particularly the Book of Mormon—speak of the mysteries very positively, as something we should seek to know. The scriptural terminology appears to refer to the things of God that the faithful come to know—things that nonbelievers never understand.
