Why We Build Temples

Here is a video the Church posted for this week's "Mormon Message." It is in response to an upcoming episode of HBO's Big Love that is said to depict temple ceremonies.

type in this address to see the Church's official statement about the episode:


  1. thats great guys. have you ever heard the story about the man (i foget the name) he was an early member of the church, parley pratt type times, and got a gun pointed at his chest and told to deny Joseph. he unbottoned his shirt, stepped up til the barrel was touching the skin on his chest and he said "Shoot and be damned". Thats how i feel about these HBO folks. Shoot and be damned.

  2. I believe that line is attributed to Lyman Wight

  3. Remember the words of Bro. Joseph:

    ...No unhallowed hand can stop the work from progressing; persecutions may rage, mobs may combine, armies may assemble, calumny may defame, but the truth of God will go forth boldly, nobly, and independent, till it has penetrated every continent, visited every clime, swept every country, and sounded in every ear, till the purposes of God shall be accomplished, and the Great Jehovah shall say the work is done.

    Let HBO do what they want; it will have little effect on the Lord’s kingdom.
