TEMPLE CEREMONY

Next
Top
Baptism is the first ceremony performed in behalf of the dead in the Temple. This is performed in the beautiful baptismal font mounted on the full sized statues of 12 oxen, located in the Temple basement. The Officiator and the patron are in the font dressed in heavy white jump-suits. There are two or more Witnesses observing the procedure. Often a closed circuit TV. is used to project the names of the deceased persons on a large TV. screen. Typically 200-300 baptisms are performed per hour, with LDS teenagers serving as proxies to introduce them into the Temple rituals and vicarious Ordinance work at an impressionable age. The baptismal pronouncement is recited in full for each baptism, and the patron is completely immersed by the Officiator as observed and approved by the two Witnesses. 


ANOINTING WITH HOLY OIL

Each patron is then anointed with consecrated oil preparatory to "becoming a King and a Priest (or a Queen and Priestess) unto the Most High God, hereafter to rule and reign in the House of Israel forever." A Temple Worker pours some drops of oil on the top of the patron's head and moistens his fingers in oil and then touches each member of the patron's body as he pronounces a blessing upon it, reaching under the shield to anoint shoulders, back, breast, vitals and bowels, and loins. Two workers then place their hands in the patron's head and one of them pronounces a sealing of the anointing.

Note: Before a person can enter the temple, they must have developed a certain degree of spiritual maturity, as evidenced by issuance of a Temple Recommend. However, strictly speaking, a Temple Recommend is not necessary. For unworthy people, the temple doors will simply not open. No key is needed to stow one's clothing in temple lockers -- in order to perform the temple rites dressed in costumes.

Only worthy and honest people can enter the temple, and theft within it's sacred walls is not possible. The locks and leys are provided for only so that you can remember where you hung your pants.

CLOTHING IN THE TEMPLE GARMENT

The patron is then dressed in the "Garment of the Holy Priesthood" as a Temple Worker gives him special instructions regarding the constant wearing of it 24 hours per day throughout his life: "It will be a shield and a protection to you from the power of the destroyer until you have finished your work on the earth, providing you do not defile it, but are true and faithful to your covenants." The worker also gives instructions regarding the secret "New Name" and then whispers the "New Name" to the patron.

THE "NEW NAME"

Previous
Next
Top

A Mormon's most secret and cherished possession should be his "New Name" which he receives during the Temple Rituals. This is the name by which he "will be called forth on the morning of the First Resurrection" by his God, and by which he will be known throughout Eternity. He receives this from a Temple Worker, in a whisper, as he is being helped into his new "magic underwear" for the first time, during his Temple initiation. Each time he returns to do Temple work he will go through these same rituals for a dead person, whose name he will carry through the entire ceremony on a little slip of paper, which he surrenders to the Introducer at the Temple Veil, before he enters the Celestial Room. On these return visits he will normally by-pass the "Washing, Anointing, and Clothing in the Garment of the Holy Priesthood" rituals, and just receive the "New Name" in a little booth as he leaves the locker room on his way to the theatre type Endowment Rooms. The "New Name" is usually Biblical, such as Abraham, Moses, Seth, or Mary, Martha, Naomi, or they come from the Book of Mormon. Many Mormons are not aware that every person attending the Endowment on a particular day receives the same male or female "new name", or its alternate. The alternate is given when the first given name of the person receiving the Endowment, deceased or alive, (not the proxy) is the same, or sounds very similar to the "new name". My son and I share the same "new name" of Enoch with the prophet Joseph Smith Jr. and probably millions of other living and dead Mormons. I often wondered how we would know which "Enoch" was being called forth, or if we would all be judged together en masse.

Reconsidering No Man Knows My History
Fawn M. Brodie and Joseph Smith in Retrospect

Synopsis 
A frank yet compassionate depiction of the culture of the Mormon Church, this compelling rite-of-passage story describes the mystery of the church's rituals and the beauty and rigor of its theology and traditions set against the backdrop of one woman's life. Laake is executive managing editor of the New Times, Inc., chain of magazines and was named Arizona Journalist of the Year in 1988.
Rocky Mountain News 
"This excellent collection of essays by  Mormon and non-Mormon historians meticulously examines the Brodie Question: was her book merely an angry polemic by an apostate searching for self-fulfillment, or did it present a painfully true portrait of an all-too-human prophet"

THE CHRISTIAN MINISTER IS SATAN'S HIRELING

Previous
Next
Top
Lucifer employs a Christian Minister as his hireling lackey to
confuse, deceive, and destroy all mankind along with Adam and
Eve. He preaches to them a comical perversion of the 3rd century
Nicean Creed, which Adam rejects, employing sarcasm and ridicule
to develop audience contempt, but without hissing or booing, as
was done in prior decades.

The Officiator calls the Witness Couple and seven or eight other
couples to come forward and form a circle around the altar.
Those in the circle then proceed to follow the Officiator in
performing all of the names, signs, and penalties of the tokens
of the Priesthoods which they have previously received. Then
they form the "True Order of Prayer". The sisters all veil their
faces (in the audience also). Then each couple in the circle
joins right hands in the Patriarchal Grip and everyone raises
their left arms to the square and rests their left elbow on the
person next to them. The Officiator carefully checks everyone's
position ... then kneels at the altar and offers a prayer, which
all those in the circle repeat, one phrase at a time. (this is
the first time the patrons hear the Officiator's voice. He has
been pantomiming the tape recording during all of the prior
twenty minutes of the ceremony since the movie ended).


THE VEIL OF THE TEMPLE

Previous
Next
Top
The climactic conclusion to the Endowment if the Veil Ceremony in
which each patron is tested by a Veil Worker, who represents the
Lord behind the Veil, for his knowledge of the four tokens and
their names, which were given to him during the Endowment. The
Veil is a seven foot high by three foot wide ivory colored fabric
panel hung on a beautifully finished hardwood framework .
It has seven "Marks of the Holy Priesthood" in it
which correspond to the four marks in the patron's Priesthood
Temple undergarment. Three of these Veil marks are sewn in the
form of openings which are large enough for hands or arms to pass
through. Between each pair of Veil segments is a curtained
opening through which the patron is conducted after he
successfully completes the testing.



THE VEIL CEREMONY

Previous
Next
Top
The Veil Ceremony is the Patron's principle opportunity to
participate in this two hour ritual. A Veil Worker represents
the Lord behind the Veil, and an Introducer presents the patron
to the Lord and coaches him through his lines and actions if
necessary. The Lord reaches through and opening in the Veil to
take his hand in the various grips or tokens and asks him
specific questions through the Veil. His answers must be word
perfect. The culmination of this examination is the name of the
Second Token of the Melchizedek Priesthood, the Patriarchal Grip,
or Sure Sign of the Nail, which is given to the patron only
through the Veil, while embracing the Lord in the Five Points of
Fellowship.


THE FIVE POINTS OF FELLOWSHIP

Previous
Next
Top

"The Five Points of Fellowship are inside of right foot by the
side of right foot, knee to knee, breast to breast, hand to back,
and mouth to ear." The patron and the Veil Worker both reach
their left arm through the appropriate mark in the Veil, while
holding right hands in the Patriarchal Grip, and embracing each
other, maintaining strong contact at all the points indicated
with the Veil separating them, while the Veil Worker gives the
name of the token to the patron and the patron repeats it back
vebatim.


Are you worthy ?

The name of the token is, "Health in the navel, marrow
in the bones, strength in the loins and sinews. Power in the
Priesthood be upon me, and upon my posterity through all
generations of time, and throughout all eternity."

The name of the token is, "Health in the navel, marrow
in the bones, strength in the loins and sinews. Power in the
Priesthood be upon me, and upon my posterity through all
generations of time, and throughout all eternity." Many
women patrons are seriously agitated and disturbed by this
procedure, because the Veil Workers are all men.



THE CELESTIAL ROOM

Previous
Next
Top
The Celestial Room is a very large, elegantly decorated and
furnished sitting room. It has no function or purpose except
that patrons may stand or sit for a few minutes to wait for
spouse, friends, or associates to come through the Veil.
Conversation is permitted only in quiet whispers. This is the
only opportunity a Mormon ever has to ask a question about the
Temple ceremonies. It is supposed to be a place to meditate, or
seek answers to problems or inspiration. In actual practice,
however, patrons are not permitted to remain in the Celestial
room for more than a few minutes. Rarely is anyone available to
answer any questions or discuss a problem. It is very business
like an efficiently operated, like a production line.
