What are Mormon Temples used for?

Shane Smith
Temples are used to help others come closer to Christ we have Temples because it is place were we can communicate with God because we believe it to be his house a house of the of Lord God Almighty. Its a place were were we learn eternal truths, recieve and particpate in sacred ordainces such as sealing families together forever that way husband and the wife as well as childeren are binded just like it says it the scriptures as well as the prophets have spoken of some other performed ordinances such as baptism for those that have died so they have the opportnity to recieve and accept the gospel for themselves which the gospel of Jesus Christ our Savior and our Redeemer it is a place of worship in other words a heaven here on earth.

What is the priesthood?

Shane Smith
The Priesthood is the authority to act in god's name it is the same Priesthood that christ established when he lived here on the earth and it still exists here in the church of jesus christ of latter- day saints today. The church is directed and led through this authority. it is give to all male members of the church who are prepared to recieve the priesthood order to help lead the church and serve our loving heavenly father children. With the Priesthood a person can help by leading congregations of the church, perform sacred ordinances such as baptism, blessing those that are sick and afflicted in any matter. we believe god expects those who hold this sacred preisthood authority to follow jesus christ example and serve love, kindness, gentleness and any other kinda of christlike attribute there is to help others out there that know not god.
