Most of my family and friends are members of the LDS/Mormon church. I'm curious what you/they think about what NewNameNoah is doing? Is what Mike, AKA NewNameNoah, is doing beneficial?
Please send feedback or suggestions
Growing up Mormon I was totally blindsided when I went through the Salt Lake Temple for the first time in 1990. I remember sitting there thinking that I had entered into an alternate reality that I had never experienced before! Interestingly enough my parents who took me through the session expressed concern that the ceremony had been changed. When I asked my father what had changed he told me it was too sacred to discuss. It wasn't until years later that I learned that the "penalties" had been removed mere months before I went through the temple.
I had been taught my entire Mormon life that secret combinations were wrong yet in the SLC temple I was indeed learning secret combinations! Not only that I learned secret handshakes, tokens and I promised to give everything I own or would ever own to the LDS/Mormon church.
