This booklet has been prepared to inform the general public,

including most Mormons, and especially the Body of Christians,

and to reveal to them of exactly what transpires during the

secret Mormon Temple Ceremonies. Our purpose is not to ridicule,

but to shed light on these hidden things of darkness. We

sincerely believe that Mormons and non-Mormons alike cannot

comprehend or accurately evaluate the complex Mormon gospel

without knowing what actually transpires inside of the Temple,

the place where the Keys of Knowledge necessary for exaltation

are imparted to LDS Gods in embryo. We pray earnestly that this

information will be especially helpful in encouraging Christians

in their witness of the true Lord Jesus Christ to those lost in

the deception and bondage Mormonism.


This booklet contains the entire series of Mormon Temple

ceremonies, called "Ordinances" and is 100% accurate in the

essence of what is done, and very nearly 100% accurate in the

exact wording of what is said. This is because this edition was

transcribed from a tape recording made inside the Temple at the

actual Endowment ceremony*. Other ceremonies have been verified

by comparing them with copies of Temple Worker Instruction Books


*This booklet is purposely not copyrighted and may be copied or

used in any way deemed appropriate.

The tape recording of the Mormon Temple Endowment from which

this booklet was transcribed was recorded in the Los Angeles

Mormon Temple. The recording was made using a personal pocket

size tape recorder carried by one of the patrons during Endowment


The patron who made this recording entered the Temple using his

own personal Temple Recommend and carried his own Temple Veil

Worker's name tag and identification card during the ceremony.

He was greeted by several Temple Worker acquaintances who

obviously did not know of his excommunication from the Mormon

Church, which had been at his own request several months earlier.

One of the objectives of this foray was to test the well known

Mormon claim of Divinely aided Temple security. Another

objective was to provide and up-to-date and accurate text of the

Endowment. (There have been many revisions to the Endowment text

in the past ten years, some of them significant). Contrary to

popular belief of Mormons, not one person in the Temple appeared

the slightest bit spiritually or supernaturally alerted to the

presence among them of one whom they classify as an "apostate"

and a "son of perdition". As he departed, the patron was

encouraged by a member of the Temple Presidency to return again


or similar authentic sources, making this the most accurate and

up to date rendition of these "secret" ceremonies ever published

in the 120 year history of Mormon Temple exposes. The ceremonies

have been annotated and explanatory information included to help

the reader understand the activities as they progress. Part one

contains background information and commentary, including a brief

overview of all of the ceremonies in sequence to prepare the

reader to understand the dialogue of the ceremonies.

Even though we know that the Authorities of the Mormon church,

the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, Salt Lake City,

Utah, will be highly offended at the publication of this work, we

do not apologize for doing it. As former Mormons and Temple

Workers who are now born again Christians, we acknowledge a great

responsibility to the unsuspecting world to expose and reprove

with exactness and the light of truth, precisely what activities

transpire inside the Mormon temples today.

We heed the admonition of the Apostle Paul to the Ephesian

Saints, who had previously participated in similar pagan and

occultic rituals, "For ye were sometimes (once) darkness, but now

ye are light in the Lord, walk as children of light ... and have

no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather

reprove (expose) them ... for it is a shame even to speak of

those things which are done of them in secret. But all things

that are reproved (exposed) are made manifest by the light."

(Ephesians 5:8, 11-13) We recognize that this is not the first

such "expose", but it is the most accurate and current account of

the activities of the Mormon temple "Endowment"ever published.

We wish to bring it to the attention of concerned people

everywhere so that they may be knowledgable concerning this, the

most sacred of all activities and teachings to the modern Mormon

(see John 18:20). Mormonism cannot be fully understood by

Mormons or non-Mormons alike without an understanding these

Temple rituals - the "Keystone" of modern Mormon doctrine and


Statistics released in January 1982, by qualified Mormon church

authorities indicated that at least three out of every four

Mormons (teenage and older) have never participated in these

rituals. These non-participating Mormons have been subjected to

a variety of powerful propaganda from their leaders, impressing

upon them the sacred, holy, and enlightning nature of their

Temple "Ordinances", and the great blessings to be obtained

through them. This booklet is intended especially for those non-

participating Mormons, to enable them to recognized the occultic,

non-Christian nature of these rituals, and to see them for them-

selves in the clear light of reality. We are confident that

those who will prayerfully evaluate these rites for themselves

will be able to see them as they truly are, rather than

continuing in the naive belief that they are the sacred vehicle

essential to becoming a polygamous god, destined to rule over a

new planet for eternity.

Mormons who regularly attend the Temple should also be very

interested in this booklet. They will be "dying to find out" if

it really contains a "word perfect" rendition of all the Temple

rituals, and anxious to find a misplaced word so they can

criticize its accuracy. We are pleased to give them the

opportunity, with a challenge to call to our attention any errors

they believe they detect. We also challenge them to listen more

attentatively while attending the Temple, and to compare what

they hear with the Bible or the Book of Mormon, which teach an

entirely different Gospel and plan of salvation from that

presented in the Temple Endowment.

Anyone who is familiar with the rite of Freemasonry will

recognize them as the primary source for the tokens, signs, and

penalties used in the Temple Endowment. Much of the mystical

symbolism of Mormonism is also borrowed from Masonry. The

symbolism and practices of the ancient pagan mystery religions

associated with nimrod and Babylon are also richly displayed in

the Mormon temple and reflected in the doctrines presented

therein. Part one of this booklet contains commentary comparing

these Mormon rituals with those of other religions and

theologies, including Christianity.





Mormon Temples are the most secret/sacred facet of Mormonism and

are completely different from neighborhood Mormon chapels. Once

a new Temple is dedicated, no non-Mormons are ever allowed

inside. Most Mormons are not permitted to enter the Temple

either. Only Mormons who have passed stringent requirements of

worthiness determined by a penetrating private interview with

their Bishop, and then a second similar interview with their

Stake President, are issued a "Temple Recommend" which permits

them to enter the Temple (See figure 1). Temple Recommends are

valid for one year after which the entire interview process must

be repeated to receive a new Recommend. According to LDS church

leaders, less than 20% of adult Mormons have valid Temple Recom

mends and thus are qualified to attend the temple. Less than 10%

of adult Mormons regularly attend the Temple.**

Before a Mormon is issued his first Temple Recommend, he is

normally required to attend a course of study intended to

qualify him to "live worthy" or to become qualified to live LDS

standards of loyalty, dedication, financial contributions and

personal traits of worthiness. Very little of the ceremonial

aspects, and none of the promises or penalties of the Temple

rituals are included in the ciriculum nor are these ever discus

sed at any time outside or inside of the Temple. These are still

a mystery to the participants, who are acting on faith in Joseph

Smith and the Mormon church's divine authority.

During a member's first participation in the Temple ceremony, he

"receives his own endowments" which means he attends to his own

personal salvation requirements. In a special instruction ses

sion with all the initiates he is asked by the Temple President

to make a personal commitment to return to the temple often, at

least once per month, to renew his own commitment and to remind

him of his covenants while he is serving as a proxy for a

News, week of January 16, 1982, page 10 for very interesting

information on Mormon dedication to this "Keystone of their


deceased person to provide that person with Mormon salvation. He

thus becomes a "Savior on Mount Zion" by acting in behalf of

someone who did not have this opportunity himself.
