This Temple in Clay County, Missouri is just a stone's throw over the river
from Jackson County, Missouri.No surprise Pres. Monson dedicated it
himself.I suspect it will be the 1st of many Temples to built
there...since the sites for several of them have already dedicated.
It thrills me to know that this Kansas city temple is there! As with the Nauvoo
temple it is such a blessing for Latter-day-saints in the area where there was
so much persecution. Temples are sacred not secret. Great happiness is felt by
faithful members of the LDS church who attend the temple for not only themselves
but for their ancestors. Family History is important! Temple work is important!
Hurrah for Israel!
To: A voice of Reason, Jesus on Temples: Jesus… then, Destroy this
temple, and I will raise it again in three days. They replied, It has taken
forty-six years to build this temple, and you are going to raise it in three
days? But the temple he had spoken of was his Body. John 2:19-21 (NIV) Jesus
fulfilled the need for Temples for Christians. In John (4:20-24),
Our fathers worshipped in this mountain; and ye say, that in Jerusalem is the
place where men ought to worship. Jesus saith unto her, Woman, believe me, the
hour cometh, when ye shall neither in this mountain, nor yet at
Jerusalem[Temple], worship the Father. Ye worship ye know not what: we know what
we worship: for salvation is of the Jews. But the hour cometh, and now is, when
the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the
Father seeketh such to worship him. I have spoken openly to the
world, Jesus replied I always taught in synagogues or at the Temple, where all
the Jews come together. I said nothing in Secret.(John 18:20
atl134,I can appreciate that. That won't stop me from trying to
persuade you to give the church another chance, lol. But I can appreciate your
willingness to recognize what is good (to the extent of how LDS members are
@A Voice of ReasonHeh, no offense taken. Yes I am a former member, and yes
I don't believe that temples are necessary in the ways the LDS church does,
but they're important to you all and I know this will make a lot of LDS
members in the area happy and be part of many important moments in people's
lives. I can appreciate that. I like that list of 10 lesser-known LDS landmarks
(or whatever it's called) too. It's interesting stuff. Now
persuasive pieces that try and convince the reaader of (insert something here)
would be a different matter since those lend themselves to discussion and
atl134,sometimes your comments surprise me. I'm not critical of
your compliment. I welcome the idea that you would share it. I'm just
confused as you generally are at odds with LDS beliefs. Aren't you a former
member? I mean no offense- I'm simply curious and nothing more or less than
Congrats on the new temple!
My wife and I flew from Las Vegas, NV to see this dedication. Seeing the
Prophet in person was such an amazing experience.
A glorious day for all within the boundaries of the Kansas City Temple District.
The people from this area are a legend to the members here in the St Louis
Temple area. They have made great sacrifice to attend and serve as ordinance
workers in the St Louis Temple. Our temple has really slowed down, but I have
no doubt that the Kansas City temple will be a busy and productive temple.
Congrats to all of you in the Kansas City temple area. You earned it :)
Exciting news for those that live in the area! Great day!
This so great to see these Temple being built! I hope to see even more of them
