Several lodg-s have sold their full quota of tickets and have sent In requests for more. Treasurer S. N. Mallory reports that THE HOUSE OF THE LORD Why Do the Latter-day Saints Build Temples? By DR. JAMES E. TALMACE. Of the Council of the Twelve. Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Pay Saints. Salt Lake City. Utah. The Latter-day Saints are known aad distintuished as a Temple-build ing people. They, in common with religious bodies in general, build houses of worship, which for the dif ferent sects range from humble chapels to great churches, lmp.?eing aynagogs, spacious tabernacles and stately cathedrals: but for none of these edifices Is the claim advanced that they are Temples in the true and ipeciflc sense of the term. Be it remembered that Temples are not designed for purposes of general assembly or congregational worship aa are church buildings in general, but for the administration of sacreu ordinances. It Is both Interesting and instructive to note that this charac teristic applies alike tat Haathen tem ples and to exclut*?* sanctuaries reared to the name of the true and Hvfng God. In pagan temples of: olden time, the altar of sacrifice stood at the entrance; and though devotee? thronged about the altar, none but the officiating priests were admitted to the actual shrine, within the temple itself. So siso with the Tabernacle of the Congregation, which was a portable sanctuary, constructed by the Israel ites In their migration from Egypt: and so with the Imposing Temples of Solomon. Zerubbsbel and Hero-i. in each of which were spacious courts enclosed by an outer wall, with altar and other equipment, within which courts the people congregated; but the sanctuary itself was a relatively ?mall structure, reserved for the most holy ordinances and ceremonial min istry. Similarly the temples erected and maintained by the Latter-day Saint? are" reserved for the solemnis ing of sacred ordinances, and are dis tinctively other than meeting-house? need for public worship. True to the Divine commission laid apon Israel, the Nephlte colonists erected a temple on the Western Continent ss early as 570 B. C, about thirty years after their exodus from Jerusalem. The Book ot Mormon In forms us that this structure was pat terned after the Temple of Solomon, though greatly Inferior In else snd splendor. (3 Nephi 5:K). The Latter-day Saints build testi fies because they are commanded so to ?do through the direct word of modern revelation: and In thia di-j vinely Imposed lsbor they recognize | the purposes of God with respect to ? tbe salvation and possible exaltation at* mankind The laws and ordinances of th? | Gospel so far aa required for SAL VATION?specifically the Individual ?Eterei?? of saving faith In the Lord Jesus Christ, true repentance, sub mission to baptisai by Immersion at the hands of one haying authority, and to the higher baptism of the [ Spirit by th? authoritative Imposi tions of hands for th? bestowal of tb? Holy Ghost?these requirement? ???y be met and the saving effects thereof secured by the liviSg- with out Temple?, ?jut baptism for the dead, as also Une endowments Inci :UU%iJm -__ifcll?. CritfUKOd Witti its ' boundless possibilities of advance ment, in short, administration of the laws and ordinances of the Gos pel of Christ requisite to EXALTA TION in the eternal worlds, can be solemnized only In Temples erected snd dedicated for these holy pur poses, for so the Lord hath declared. (See Doctrine and Covenants 124: 28-41). As indicated above. Temples are not for the benefit of the living alone. Existing Temples are main tained for the salvation and exalta tion of both living and dead; and the ordinances administered therein in behalf of the dead outnumber ? many fold the ministrations for the living. Vicarious service for the departed Is peculiar to the Church of- Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints , and rightly so. for to this Church has the commission for this high min istry been given. In the last chap ter of Malachi we find a vivid de scription of the condition of man kind in the last days, and a proph ecy of gladsome *promlse. On April 3. 1836. in the first Temple erected in modern times, that at Kirtland. Ohio, a glorious manifestation was given to Joseph Smith snd Oliver Cowdery. in the course of which Eli jah ministered in person to the two modern prophet?, saying: "BEHOLD. THE TIME HAS F?L LT COME. WHICH WAS SPOKEN OF BY THE MOLTH OF MALACHI, TESTIFYING THAT HE (ELIJAH) SHOULD BE SENT BEFORE TH? GREAT AND DREADFUL DAY OF THE LORD COME. TO TURN'THE HEARTS ?F THE FATHERS TO THE CHILDREN, AND THE CHIL DREN TO THE FATHERS, LE8T THE WHOLE EARTH BE SMIT TEN WITH A CURSE. THERE FORE THE KEYS OF THIS DIS PENSATION ARE COMMITTED IN TO YOUR HANDS, AND BY THIS YE* MAY KNOW THAT THE GREAT AND DREADFUL DAY OF THE LORD IS NEAR, EVEN AT THE DOOR8." (Doctrine and Coven ants. 115:14-1?.) The requirements of the Gospel are universally applicable, to bond and free, to living and dead. In the pleni tude of Divine mercy provision ls made whereby the myriads who have died without a knowledge of the re quired conditions, or without oppor tunity of compliance therewith, may J be ministered for by their living pos terity. Thus the departed fathers. If they be repentant In th? spirit world, may be nude partakers of th? bless ings provided through the stonement of Christ. "FOR FOR THI8 CAUSE WA8 THE GOSPEL PREACHED ALSO TO TITfcM THAT ARE DEAD, THAT THE! MIGHT BE JUDGED ACCORDING TO MEN IN THE FLESH. BUT LIVE ACCORDING TO GOD IN THE SPIRIT." 0 Peter, 1:1) For the Book or Mormon apply to booksellers, or write direct for this, the "House of the Lord." snd other Church works to Eastern States Mis sion. 273 Gates Ava, Brooklyn, N.
