Mormon Temple Ceremonies

There has been some recent buzz about Mormon Temple Ceremonies. On LDS.org they note that “Church members are offended when their most sacred practices are misrepresented or presented without context or understanding.” I personally believe that any religious person would be offended if their religious ceremonies were made into the subject of a cable TV show. Hollywood seems to have no boundaries.

With that said, it is generally understood that Hollywood will do what Hollywood wants. The point now is to help people understand the reality of things.

First, I would encourage you to read the official statement from the LDS church. You can read it here.

Second, I would encourage you to talk to your Mormon friends or work associates, if you know any, or feel free to talk to the Mormon missionaries. You can also go to Mormon.org and chat with them online. Talking to an actual Mormon about your questions will help you get clear and correct answers. If you want, you can also ask your questions on this website.

Third, I would encourage you, if you really want to understand what the Temple means to the Mormons, to study the subject on LDS.org. LDS.org is an amazing resource, with an exceptional search engine. You can also read a Specific LDS.org page on Temples. These are great places to start if you really want to know what Temples mean to the LDS faith.
