12th President Spencer W. Kimball

“Temple garments afford protection. I am sure one could go to extreme in worshiping the cloth of which the garment is made, but one could also go to the other extreme. Though generally I think our protection is a mental, spiritual, moral one, yet I am convinced that there could be and undoubtedly have been many cases where there has been, through faith, an actual physical protection, so we must not minimize that possibility” (The Teachings of Spencer W. Kimball, 539).

Seventy David E. Sorensen

“The garment… when properly worn, will serve as a protection against temptation and evil” (“The Doctrine of Temple Work,” Ensign, October 2003, 62. Ellipses in original).

David J. Ridges (Executive Secretary for the Sunday School General Presidency)

“The garments serve as a reminder to them of the covenants they have made in the temple with the Lord, to live pure and virtuous lives. In addition, garments provide protection understood by the worthy wearer, and promote modesty in clothing styles” (Mormon Beliefs and Doctrines Made Easier, 112).
