“[Church history] if not properly written or properly taught…may be a faith destroyer…The writer or teacher who has an exaggerated loyalty to the theory that everything must be told is laying a foundation for his own judgment…The Lord made it very clear that some things are to be taught selectively and some things are to be given only to those who are worthy.”

Boyd K. Packer, ‘The Mantle is Far, Far Greater Than the Intellect’ (Provo, UT: BYU Studies, volume 21, no. 3, 22 August 1981), 259-277.
