Ensign, ‘Blessings of the Temple,’ October 2010; “As we touch the temple and love the temple, our lives will reflect our faith. As we go to the holy house, as we remember the covenants we make therein. We will be able to bear every trial and overcome each temptation.” – Thomas S. Monson

Recently the Mormon Church debuted a video discussing their “sacred” garments and other clothing worn in the temple endowment ceremony.
During the video it said that their white undergarments and temple clothing represent “purity”. As I think about this a few questions come to mind such as:
What makes those garments white and pure?
Is it the blood of Jesus Christ, or is it obedience the laws of the Mormon gospel?
What do they really represent?
Mormon Doctrine, p 770; “Stubborn people will be damned unless they forsake their course of obstinacy, turn to humility, and are “baptized without stubbornness of heart.” (Alma 32:14-17.) After baptism, as part of working out their salvation, the saints must strive to shake off every particle of stubbornness against any of the laws and ordinances of the gospel.”
Some good things, some not so good things and everything in between. Wow!
And then out of the blue I received a surprise phone call at 9:30 pm last Sunday evening that surprised even me.

Young Women Manual 2, “Lesson 29: Exaltation,” p. 108; “What blessings await those who live worthy of exaltation? (Godhood, having all things subject to them, having angels subject to them, having all power, living with Jesus.) Point out that just as Jesus Christ was promised all that the Father has, we can also receive all power and dominion, becoming creators of other spirits and other worlds.”
