Posts Tagged ‘Mormon temples’

 On Tuesday May 16, 2017 Glenn Pace passed away in Bountiful, UT at the age of 77. Glenn Pace was an Elder and Leader in the Mormon Church. Apparently one of the things he was known for was a memo he wrote about the satanic ritualistic child abuse that was going on in the Mormon Church.

In the early 1990’s the Tanner’s of Utah Light House Ministries were presented with a copy of a memo written by Mr. Pace stating that he had met with several individuals who claimed to be victims of ritualistic child abuse in the Mormon Church.

Acts 17:24; “God that made the world and all things therein, seeing that he is Lord of heaven and earth, dwelleth not in temples made with hands”.

 While gathering info on Mormon temples, I came across one Mormon’s reasoning of why temples are so important for them. The author pointed out temples are vital in Mormonism because it’s the only place they can perform ‘saving ordinances’.

 March 12 – Necromancy and not trusting God. Isaiah 8:19-20; “And when they shall say unto you, Seek unto them that have familiar spirits, and unto wizards that peep, and that mutter: should not a people seek unto their God? for the living to the dead? 20 To the law and to the testimony: if they speak not according to this word, it is because there is no light in them.”

templeAs of late, the LDS Church is building temples at a record pace. According to their site they now have 155 operating temples, and 25 others in various stages of construction. Another page gives the reason why they build so many temples. Here in part, is what they said –

‘From the days of the Old Testament, the Lord has commanded His people to build temples-sacred structures where He could teach, guide, and bless them.’ See ‘Why We Build Temples’.

Isaiah 6:1; “In the year that king Uzziah died I saw also the Lord sitting upon a throne, high and lifted up, and his train filled the temple.”

temples-01As you probably figured out, today we’re looking at temples! Our objective is to look at why our Lord said we shouldn’t have more than one temple at a time, and examine the Church’s use of them.

As of September 16, 2016, the LDS Church reported having 151 temples in operation, which means they have 151 too many. Making matters worse, there are sixteen others awaiting completion.

The BoM tells us the Nephites operated several temples at a time, which was in total defiance to God.

Alma 16:13; “And Alma and Amulek went forth preaching repentance to the people in their temples, and in their sanctuaries, and also in their synagogues, which were built after the manner of the Jews.”

Adding insult to injury in their defiance against the Lord, one of their apostles made the comment temples are the stopping point between man and heaven.

“The temple is a point of intersection between heaven and earth. In this sacred place, holy work will be performed through selfless service and love. The temple reminds me of all that is good and beautiful in the world.” – David A. Bednar

1 Corinthians 3:16-17; “Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you? 17 If any man defile the temple of God, him shall God destroy; for the temple of God is holy, which temple ye are.”

2014 Reconstruction Model of Herod's TempleI came across an article in the Ensign Magazine and posting it today for a couple of reasons –

  • It serves as a good visual of a Mormon’s understanding of how God operated after Jesus’ resurrection, and the Holy Spirit came to reside inside the believer.
  • It’s a great tool to use for witnessing!

To me, this article is the entire reason I work in this ministry. Nothing will tear at my heart like the total depravity Mormons find themselves in and then flounder around in the mess they’ve made. Following their prophet while reading the Bible is like trying to put that proverbial square peg in a round hole. The messages they hear are diametrically opposed to each other, and will never meld in a cohesive manner.

As you’ll see, this article is about a man who went through a rough patch in life, and began examining himself. The point to his article was for others to do the same by going through a check-list of sorts.  My response to each point he brought up is in red font.
