In an official statement from the Newsroom for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, the First Presidency discusses the restoration of temple worship and small details that have been adjusted periodically. The statement reads:
“Whenever the Lord has had a people on the earth who will obey His word, they have been commanded to build temples. Scriptures document patterns of temple worship from the times of Adam and Eve, Moses, Solomon, Nephi, and others.
With the restoration of the gospel in these latter days, temple worship has also been restored to bless the lives of people across the world and on the other side of the veil as well.
Over these many centuries, details associated with temple work have been adjusted periodically, including language, methods of construction, communication, and record-keeping. Prophets have taught that there will be no end to such adjustments as directed by the Lord to His servants.
A dedicated temple is the most holy of any place of worship on the earth. Its ordinances are sacred and are not discussed outside a holy temple.”
While LDS Daily has a policy of not discussing the specifics of temple ordinances on our website, recent temple patrons have reported adjustments regarding wording in the temple endowment on social media. No official statement has been offered to confirm the validity of these changes. Those wishing to learn more about any adjustments are invited to participate in the temple ordinances themselves.
