This website provides access to current and historical texts of the endowment,
without exposing those few portions of the ceremony that are explicitly
reserved for initiates. By creating this site, I hope to discourage researchers
from using temple exposés produced by individuals and organizations
hostile to Mormonism.
This website presents the temple ceremony with a degree of transparency
that many Latter-day Saints will find uncomfortable. However, the site
does not reveal any information that is protected by covenants of non-disclosure.
For a fuller explanation of my motivation to create this site, read Why
FOR NEWCOMERS: If this is your first visit, I strongly recommend
that you read Site contents to learn how the
site can serve your particular research interests.
This site is an independent initiative. It has no official connection
to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints or any other Mormon
Your endowment is to receive all those ordinances in the house of the Lord which are necessary for you, after you have departed this life, to enable you to walk back to the presence of the Father, passing the angels who stand as sentinels, being enabled to give them the keywords, the signs and tokens, pertaining to the holy priesthood, and gain your eternal exaltation in spite of earth and hell.
