This is called the “Washing & Anointing” ceremony and it has evolved significantly over the years. Up until the 1950’s, initiates in this ritual were required to stand completely naked in front of two strangers as they were touched all over their bodies with water and consecrated oil.
Sometime starting around 1930 initiates were allowed to wear a very thin “shield” that closely resembled a white poncho with slits up both sides throughout the entire ritual. The ordinance workers would reach under the “shield” to touch various parts of the initiates body. Up until at least the mid-1950’s the ceremony still required the initiate to stand completely naked in front of two temple ordinance workers without the “shield” covering their naked body.
The practice of touching the initiate all over their bodies stopped on Jan. 18, 2005 when the ordinance was changed so that the temple workers would only touch the initiate on their forehead and the the initiate would wear their temple garments (aka underwear) underneath a much thicker and more modest “shield”.
On May 17, 2016 the rules were changed once again. Now initiates are fully clothed throughout the entire ritual and the shields are being phased out completely.

Jeff Durbin and Ivey Conerly speak with an Mormon gentleman who has spoken with Jeff and his team for over a decade. They have a good relationship with one another and this moment is powerful.
Joseph Smith (founder of Mormonism) taught that god told him that all of the Christian churches were wrong, that their creeds were an abomination, and all Christians were corrupt. Joseph also taught that there was so much division between the churches that he didn’t know which one to join.
Watch what happened.
