Talk:Mormon Temples

From MormonWiki
Jump to: navigation, search

I think we should rename this page to Temple or Temples.

  1. This site is all about Mormons so it's a bit redundant.
  2. As a Mormon, I consider our temples to be the same as temples of ancient--House of the Lord.

Since the goal of the site isn't to be an LDS wikipedia, I believe the naming convention should stay. Most of those outside the Mormon community would refer to them as Mormon temples, even though they are definitely similar to ancient temples, such as those in the Old Testament. This will also help when performing searches. --Bakera 22:44, 12 August 2006 (MDT)

I understand your point of view, however, I believe there should be a distinction. The ceremonies of ancient and modern temples are different. For example, the modern ceremony certainly does not include animal sacrifices that were common in the days of Jesus and Solomon. --reds0xfan 12:44, 14 August 2006 (MDT)

This page needs a lot of reworking. Because of the importance we feel for temples, and the curiousity others have, this should really be one of our best pages. At present it is rather mediocre. I've done some work on it and hope to later add a section for Temples: Ancient and Modern. Any other suggestions would be appreciated. --Amaranth 15:02, 14 August 2006 (MDT)

This is now a beautifully written article, very articulate.Gboyd 14:07, 20 December 2007 (MST)

Some figures need to be updated in the article, that figure on the number of temples is three years old. JamesAnderson
