    I remember listening to a Jewish scholar discuss Mormon temples on the BYU channel or something.  He said that Mormon temples are unique because they are designed with the idea of helping you feel closer to God.  This is done through the physical beauty of the building, combined with symbolism.  Temples are designed to be a bit like heaven on Earth, to maximize the Spirit's presence.  Naturally, this costs money, but it is the Lord's way, and always has been the Lord's way.  You can't get the important ordinances that occur in the temple anywhere else, and that is how the Lord has it done.  Temples are for an even higher purpose than feeding the poor.

    That's a great answer, designed to help you feel closer to God, thank you.

  2. Ever wonder what happens to those foreordained that come to earth to find they were unworthy and/or did not fulfill their calling?

    Something similar would be Joseph Smith being destroyed if he neglected the plates. Destroyed?

    Maybe the atonement would 'cover' them?

  3. When you see something scary/horrifying on a movie or tv and it has a familiar ring? like youve already seen it? or something like it?

    Sometimes i wonder if maybe the veil is thin? and ive seen hell, that i might be going, like im already there?

    Is it just me?

  4. Have any of you ever heard of a prophet or apostle speak of meditation? Its something id like to try, but i ask myself questions like "What would president Monson do?" The few pages ive read about it were great. What do you folks think? Some of it may be related to buddhism.

  5. So, I have schizophrenia. And I need help. Because its partially a religious problem.


    I believe the prophet spoke to me through telepathy. He told me I was foreordained and now that Im on earth im found unworthy. And in the pre mortal life I volunteered to be a prophet even though I knew I wasnt worthy. Which is where the sin is. Like the 1/3 that was cast out i will too become perdition.


    Any help? Im miserable and would appreciate anything.

  6. well, what about the king of the lamanites that killed his servants because they lost his sheep, he was converted, so he wont receive exaltation?

    I think when someone knows to a fullness of god and his kingdom and then murders(like david) they lose their exaltation. Which would validate Elder Packers quote from his talk.



    Boyd K Packer:


    "The gospel teaches us that relief from torment and guilt can be earned through repentance. Save for those few—those very few—who defect to perdition after having known a fulness, there is no habit, no addiction, no rebellion, no transgression, no offense small or large which is exempt from the promise of complete forgiveness. No matter what has happened in your life, the Lord has prepared a way for you to come back if you will heed the promptings of the Holy Spirit."


    How does this apply to your replies?

  8. So to the point, I have schizophrenia. And i feel a little exposed sharing this but i need as much help as i can get. What if i found out that i was foreordained to be a prophet, and found that I volunteered to be one, and that i knew i wasnt worthy and did it anyway, and because of this i believe im damned to sons of perdition or a kingdom lower than celestial.

    Are we damned for not fulfilling our premortal calling?
