Mormon Temple Clothing Explained

October 31, 2014

LDS Sacred Temple Clothing Video

Just over a week ago, the Church released an online video that explains the significance of the sacred temple garments and ceremonial temple clothing worn by faithful adult members. The video, entitled “Sacred Temple Clothing,” has been posted not only on the Mormon Newsroom website but also on its YouTube channel and has already garnered the attention of such major media outlets as USA Today, The Huffington Post, The Washington Post, and The Associated Press, just to name a few.

Overall, the video has been met with praise by both LDS members and others for dispelling rumors and being candid with the world about more intimate beliefs. Here are some of the comments that we received on the Mormon Channel Facebook page:

The Church has made an official statement about the purpose for creating this video, saying:

“Because there is little or no accurate information on this subject on the Internet the Church feels it important to provide this resource. The wearing of religious clothing reflects commitment and devotion to God. Latter-day Saints seek the same respect and sensitivity regarding our sacred clothing as shown to those of other faiths who wear religious vestments.”

We would love to hear your sincere comments on this video. For more information, please visit the official article on the Mormon Newsroom site.
