    I synced just now and everything seemed to be working.
  2. That's the context through which you are interpreting the quote about the Church being a leading faith. You're counting total numbers. Is it the context through which the person quoted was making the remark? I would say that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is the leading faith in the world as it is the only church authorized by the Savior to act in His name and lead God's children back to Him. 15 And when the servant of the man of God was risen early, and gone forth, behold, an host compassed the city both with horses and chariots. And his servant said unto him, Alas, my master! how shall we do? 16 And he answered, Fear not: for they that be with us are more than they that be with them. 17 And Elisha prayed, and said, Lord, I pray thee, open his eyes, that he may see. And the Lord opened the eyes of the young man; and he saw: and, behold, the mountain was full of horses and chariots of fire round about Elisha. 2 Kings 6
  3. Wouldn't you consider the faith that is led by Jesus Christ to be a leading faith?
  4. So Scott is the one covering things up. Things are starting to make more sense now.
  5. I really like this. I find I can pay attention to a person more than a movie.
  6. I forget exactly why access is so restricted. I imagine they consider the work of translating the wording of the temple ceremony into other languages to to sacred and not something that everyone should have access to. I forget, but work may also be done here as well on translating the scriptures into other languages.
  7. The translation room is where work is done on translating at least the temple ordinances (maybe scriptures as well, I forget). As you go down the stairs by the family name desk there is an unmarked door to the left of the elevators.
  8. I've been in the room where Elder Talmage wrote the book, I used to be a part time temple employee and have been in every room in the temple, from the very top to the basement, excepting the H of H and the translation room. I'm familiar with the sealing room you're speaking of, I've been in it many times, but that is not the room that we're speaking about.
  9. Words and hand holding are symbols. The efficacy of the sealing ordinance as taught and performed by by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints rests on the reality of the restoration of the priesthood. Without this priesthood no amount of words, hand holding, or anything will matter. The president of the church holds the keys of the priesthood, and like the apostle Peter, has the power and authority to "bind on earth [what is] bound in heaven: and...loose on earth [what is] loosed in heaven." (Matthew 18:18)
  10. Accepting the ordinances is one thing, but being able to abide by the associated laws and covenants would seem to be another.
  11. It’s on one of the higher floors, not accessible to temple patrons.
  12. The doctrine seems very clear. https://www.lds.org/topics/family-proclamation?lang=eng&old=true
  13. I've never heard this. We've been told this by who? A calling should be 1) acceptable to the Lord 2) acceptable to the presiding authority issuing the calling 3) acceptable to the person accepting the calling. Having been on both sides of the table, accepting and issuing callings, I feel that there are time when it's right to turn down a calling, but at the same time it was right for the calling to be extended.
