Remember beloved, God has forbidden us from having conversations with dead people.  Deuteronomy 18:9-12;

“When thou art come into the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee, thou shalt not learn to do after the abominations of those nations. 10 There shall not be found among you any one that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, or that useth divination, or an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch, 11 Or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer. 12 For all that do these things are an abomination unto the LORD: and because of these abominations the LORD thy God doth drive them out from before thee.”

Baptismal fontThe voluminous amount of posthumous baptisms Wilford Woodruff took part in while visiting the St. George temple, is an eye-raiser. Not only were the numbers noteworthy, but the recipients were as well. Woodruff’s list reads like a who’s who in world history.

Genealogy Conference PanelToday we’re looking at the definition of worship in three different settings. The reason for this stems from the repeated articles on LDS websites directing members to be diligent in their temple work. Two examples can be seen in the seminars they hold, and directives telling bishops to install teenagers as ‘family history consultants’ for their local wards – see Church News February 2015.

Dictionary.com defines worship as ‘reverent honor and homage paid to God or a sacred personage’. Keep that in mind as we look at our examples today.

salt lake mormon temple 2Notwithstanding My Weakness, p. 55; “On the other side of the veil, there are perhaps seventy billion people. neal maxwellThey need the same gospel, and releases occur here to aid the Lord’s work there. Each release of a righteous individual from this life is also a call to new labors. Those who have true hope understand this.

Therefore, though we miss the departed righteous so much here, hundreds may feel their touch there.
