Changes in the LDS Temple Ritual

Changes of the LDS Temple Ritual

 

This program chronicles the ever changing rituals and ceremonies of the LDS Temple with a historical view as to the man-made motivations and impulses to make these changes.   In this program, we also discuss answers to the common questions we receive from Mormons and non-Mormons visiting the Mormon Temple Open House during our outreach exposing Mormonism on the streets during these events.

As a former Mormon Bishop and member of the Church for over 32 years, my wife Kathy and I have spent many years in various Leadership positions of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, documenting, verifying and studying, specifically, the original teachings of the Church. I have found many of the most fundamental of these teachings to be completely out of harmony with the Lord’s teachings in the Bible.
