LDS Temples and Ordinances

You may be thinking what do temples and covenants have to do with business or personal growth?

A lot really, did you every know a business deal that went bad because one party didn’t keep their end of the deal up?  It happens all the time, keeping commitments and promises are essential to any good business and it’s success, the same can be said for our eternal progress and growth… few things are better than honest people or honest dealings with others – on the other side – few things give you more problems than people who are not honest, can’t obey the laws or deal fairly with others at almost any level of life…

Thought it is not talked about much the lds temple ordinances start with baptismal ordinances and it’s covenant foundation…

To come into the lds (Mormon) faith, you need to be taught the gospel, basically learn to change your habits, like read scriptures, attend church, obey the commandments, not drink coffee, ( and other things), don’t smoke cigarettes, including no drinking alcohol, be sexually pure, and several other things, is this easy for any one – NO!  Is it possible YES, but not with out help of the Lord and other people generally speaking…

Why all of this to get ready for baptism?  Because you want to be born again, into a New Life and into new habits of living – so you can better live a life – closer to the Lord and be more blessed…

After you have shown you can do this and more for a year – than you are ready for more or greater blessings and covenants, to prepare you for life with God…

All of this is part of Plan of Happiness or the Plan of Salvation, to help us prepare to live with God again – forever as families —

So, to make these and more changes – will take some real faith, work and patience to get there and make changes in your life and living habits…

This is the true power of living a full gospel – not just lip service or a soft non committed gospel – real changes for real and eternal blessings, starting here and now on this earth – just the way we are – the real gospel of Jesus Christ – helps us to get to where we need to go!!!

Even Christ was baptized – see below.


Even religious leaders of Christ’s day did not know why they needed to be baptized – watch video – below – two kinds of baptisms one of water and one of the spirit – two difference ordinances – talk to a Mormon missionary!
