Transparency: living an open source life

Apple has been cloaked in secrecy for years - holding close held secrets until unveiling them at the right time.

It got me thinking about my spiritual life. How secretive do I keep my spiritual life? How secret 'should' it be, if at all? Do people

know what I believe? Do I want them to know?

I wonder - if people I'm around don't know I follow Jesus, then it's probably not a life Christ would be proud of Sure, Christ wanted some around him to keep mum about who he was - but that's because it was all in the timing?

When of comes to leading a life that follows Jesus - instead of a life in secret, I need to live an open source life.

What do you think - is there room in the Christian life for closely held 'spiritual secrets' until it's time to make them known? If so, what are some examples?
