Description

The Quorum of the Anointed THE RITES IN THE MORMON TEMPLE “Your endowment is to receive all those ordinances in the house of the Lord which are necessary for you, after you have departed this life, to enable you to walk back to the presence of the Father, passing the angels who stand as sentinels, being enabled to give them the keywords, the signs and tokens, pertaining to the holy priesthood, and gain your eternal exaltation in spite of earth and hell.” Brigham Young , Journal of Discourses 2:31 For Latter-day Saints, the endowment serves as a rite of adult initiation. Growing out of Joseph Smith's encounter with Freemasonry, the endowment is a ritual drama re-enacting the scriptural narrative of the creation and the fall and pre-enacting the safe return of the faithful into God's presence. In the course of the ceremony, initiates are washed, anointed, and clothed in a sacred protective garment. They covenant to lead lives of modesty, temperance, reverence, fidelity, charity, sacrifice, and consecration. They don priestly robes and learn the sacred signs, tokens, and keywords which, they are told, will give them access to God's presence in the next life if they faithfully live out their covenants in this one.show more
