JohnsonJones Posted March 14, 2021 Report Share Posted March 14, 2021 (edited) Salt Lake Manti Temples Update It appears that there will be more changes to these temples. There no longer will be a Live Presentation Endowment, The Murals are removed, more single rooms added for additional ordinances, another Baptistry, and more sealing rooms. Before we hear the bulk of complaints, I have heard it already about history and the destruction of historic items. As a Historian, I am normally greatly saddened when historic things are erased. I understand why some may be saddened by this. HOWEVER... 1. This is not without precedent. There have been other temples in Utah that have been renovated and the murals changed or removed. 2. Ask oneself what the purpose of the temple is. First and Foremost it is about the ordinances performed there-in. Which pushes the work forward more, enabling the ability to perform more ordinances or the preservation of historic value here. 3. In strengthening the temple against earthquakes, the walls of which the murals were on needed to be changed. There did not appear to be a way to preserve the murals and do the best job of making the temple more earthquake resistant at the same time. 4. I hear that this is divinely inspired. If the Prophet feels that this is the correct thing to do to press forward in the work of the Lord, who are we to question that? Just pre-empting some conversational pointers I think some may raise before they are raised here, or expressing my thoughts prior to others expressing theirs so I am not responding, rather just putting my opinion up front and center to begin with.
