Throughout the United States and
around the world are scattered the Temples of the Mormon
Church. Many people think they are no different than
the Christian church buildings attended by Christians.
However, the ceremonies and rituals performed inside the
Mormon temples do not resemble a Christian worship service
in any way. Inside temple worthy Mormons perform
baptisms for the dead, perform marriages that they feel will
seal the family for time and eternity, and stage plays that
mock the Christian faith and celebrate Satan's victory in the
garden of Eden.
Mormons given a temple recommend must take an oath swearing
by penalty of death not to reveal any part of what goes on
inside of the Mormon temple. However there are many
books and tracts written by ex-Mormons and even ex-temple
workers that detail the rituals, ceremonies and oaths that
all good Mormons are required to perform.
The Temple Recommend
No one is admitted in a Mormon temple
without a "Temple Recommend". The only time a
"gentile" or non-Mormon is allowed in the temple is during
an open house before the temple is dedicated or during a
temple renovation. The recommend is a piece of paper
verifying that the member is in good standing, i.e., paid a
full tithe, is morally clean, doctrinally pure, and has kept
the "Word of Wisdom".
