I was a mormon for 33 years but I only went to the temple twice as a teenager to do baptisms for the dead, and once as an adult to receive my endowments and be sealed in marriage.
The endowment and sealing ceremony in the Salt Lake City temple frightened me so much that I never went back. I didn't want to step foot in a temple ever again. What is strange is that I hardly remember much of what went on that day in the temple. You would think your marriage ceremony would be a memorable experience. Maybe that repressed memory is God's protection.
For many years after my temple experience, I carried so much guilt and even shame for the feelings I had toward the temple. After all, everyone had told me all my life that the most miraculous and spiritual experiences of mormons take place in the holy temples. What was wrong with me? Everyone else claimed to find God, peace, and answers to their prayers in temples. But my experience filled me with feelings of doubt, confusion, and fear.
Reading "The Sure Sign of the Nail" article written by Ed Decker on the Saints Alive website made me realize that my negative feelings toward the temple are completely valid. He has opened my eyes to see that the ordinances and rituals performed in the temple are not only odd and bizarre but actually satanic. I realize that a lot of what he says is speculation, but it really makes perfect sense to me.
He explains that the aprons we put on in the temple signify Lucifer's power and authority. The sacred temple garments that we were instructed to revere and wear at all times have marks on them that are IDENTICAL to the symbols on the apron which Lucifer wears in the temple- the square, compass, and masonic rule.
These magic underwear that we are told will shield and protect us against the power of the destroyer actually represent the power of Lucifer's priesthoods. The offering of fruits and vegetables, the fact that Lucifer appears when Adam cried out "Oh God, hear the words of my mouth", the chant pay lay ale (which can mean "Oh marvelous false God), the temple garments, the apron, the signs and gestures straight out of the occult, the tokens called the sign of the nail and the sure sign of the nail (satan worshipers often refer to satan as the nail), all point to actually submitting to and worshiping to Lucifer instead of God.
Is it any surprise that Mormo is the satanic god of the living dead?
It really creeps me out and angers me to realize that when I stood in the temple and said "power in the priesthood be upon me and upon my posterity through all generations of time and throughout all eternity" I was actually putting a curse on myself and my children for generations to come!
The facts that the mormon church uses water instead of wine or grape juice for communion, that it shuns the Cross, and places spires on it's temples which represent the nail (Satan) are all signs that shouldn't be ignored.
I'm truly appalled that Satan has deceived so many innocent people and brought them into subjection through the mormon temples. It literally makes me sick.
