There’s a lot to learn when it comes to LDS temples. There are endowment ceremonies for the living and the dead, baptisms and confirmations for the dead and there are sealing ceremonies for the living and the dead. You can read the scripts or watch videos that were secretly taped of their ceremonies right here on our site. These will give you an inside take on who Mormons pray to, what they say and what it looks like inside the temples.
In addition to all that, we believe it’s also important to understand what the engraved symbols mean on the outside of the temples. By far the Salt Lake City and Nauvoo Temples have the most prolific engravings with markings of Saturn, personified moons, galaxy markings, as well as inverted pentagrams adorning their sacred grounds.
Whenever we investigate what’s going on either inside or outside the temple we weigh it with what the Lord says in His word. The bottom line is that if it doesn’t glorify God, whom then are you worshipping?
Above all else it’s important for us to express why we do this. We don’t do this out of animosity and we certainly don’t do it for the money. We do this because of our deep love and concern for the Mormon people.
We have decades of experience with Mormonism and we all belong to varying denominations in the body of Christ. We stand united in our belief of who Jesus is, our desire to see Mormons come to know the real Jesus of the Bible and above all else, our love for the Lord.
All the information we retrieve on Mormonism comes directly from the LDS Church.

We investigated a scene from the Garden Endowment Ceremony and asked what the spiritual meaning is of those fig leaf aprons. Why do Mormons applaud and replicate the scene in their canon and secret ceremonies when Adam and Eve were clearly rebelling against the Lord?

If tokens & passwords are needed to gain entrance into heaven, why would one need Jesus?
President Monson said that as members feel and touch the ‘holy house’ their lives reflect their actions. We’re wondering what he means by this and why a man of God would refer to a temple this way.
