OxyMormonics 2 - See The Itty Bitty Sea (CDEDBDC)

  1. 1. ® RMONICS OXYMO EPISODE 2 SEE THE ITTY BITTY SEA? (CDEDBDC)
  2. 2. ® RMONICS OXYMO LDS Temples and Temple Rites conform to the Biblical patterns that do not exist in the Bible.
  3. 3. ® RMONICS OXYMO Marvin Cowan of Utah Christian Publications made this observation: Mormon temples have a quot;molten” or quot;brazenquot; sea on the backs of twelve oxen in the basement which is used for baptisms for the dead, but not baptisms of the living. But the quot;seaquot; in Solomon's temple was not in the basement nor was it used for baptisms for the living or the dead. It was quot;for the priests to wash inquot; (2 Chronicles 4:2-6), just like the laver in Moses' tabernacle (Exodus 30:18-2 1).
  4. 4. ® RMONICS OXYMO Both the tabernacle and the temple were used for burnt offerings and bloody sacrifices (2 Chronicles 2:6; 7:1-12; 29:20-35).
  5. 5. ® RMONICS OXYMO If LDS temples and temple ordinances quot;conform literally and completely to the Bible,quot; why do they not have such offerings and sacrifices in their temples? Not one LDS temple rite is found in the instructions God gave for the tabernacle in Ex. 2 5-40, nor for Solomon's temple in I Kgs. 5-8. Nor did Jesus or His disciples build temples or practice temple rites like the Mormons. The only wedding in which Jesus participated was in Cana of Galilee where there was no temple (John 2:1-10).
  6. 6. ® RMONICS OXYMO The LDS temple rites cannot quot;follow the Biblical patternquot; if there is no Biblical record of such rites! Robert J. Matthews, chairman of the Ancient Scriptures Department at BYU, admitted that quot;The Bible was not the source of the doctrines the Prophet Joseph Smith taughtquot; (Ensign, September, 1981, p. 16). That is certainly true concerning the LDS temple rites!
  7. 7. ® RMONICS OXYMO The Bottom Line The LDS Church teaches that their temple ceremonies conform to the Biblical ceremonies that cannot be found in the Bible.
