A photo-illustrated one-to-one between MARK from Talk Beliefs and SHAWN, an ex-Mormon & one-time Mormon Missionary now living in Sydney, Australia.

A fascinating insight to the little-known secret world of the Mormon Missionary, revealed by an ex-Mormon. Shawn was a Mormon Missionary from 2007 to 2009, sent from his home in South Africa to the North West of England to try to win souls for the LDS church.

Shawn reveals how young men are chosen, trained, and then assigned (often to far-away countries), along with daily rituals, and rules that can seem strange — such as not being able to contact family, and always being within eye-contact of their missionary companion.

On his two year mission, Shawn experienced rejection, attacks, depression – and ultimately deep-seated doubts that led him to reject Mormonism and become an atheist.

What Mormon Missionaries Talk About Before You Answer The Door VOL. 1

This was recorded on the afternoon of Dec. 28, 2017. On the way to the front door these Mormon missionaries made eye contact with an attractive woman inside the home through the window and practiced their pick-up lines as they waited for her to answer the door. Needless to say, she never answered the door.

My Shepherd will supply my need:
Jehovah is His Name;
In pastures fresh He makes me feed,
Beside the living stream.
He brings my wandering spirit back
When I forsake His ways,
And leads me, for His mercy’s sake,
In paths of truth and grace.

When I walk through the shades of death,
Thy presence is my stay;
A word of Thy supporting breath
Drives all my fears away.
Thy hand, in sight of all my foes,
Doth still my table spread;
My cup with blessings overflows,
Thine oil anoints my head.

The sure provisions of my God
Attend me all my days;
O may Thy house be my abode,
And all my work be praise!
There would I find a settled rest,
While others go and come;
No more a stranger, nor a guest,
But like a child at home.

This is the ENTIRE, unedited copy of a LIVE session of the Mormon Temple Endowment ceremony as it is performed in the Salt Lake City Temple of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (The Mormons). Many parts of this video are very hard to hear. There is a version with closed captions embedded into the video that can be seen here:

This video starts as I leave my locker in the dressing room to right before everyone goes to the veil and into the Celestial Room. It is one continuous, unedited shot. The camera is sometimes obscured momentarily by my clothing and/or the temple robes that all participants are required to wear during the endowment ceremony.

This is the entire Mormon Temple Endowment Ceremony (with movie) that is in every temple in the world except the Manti, Utah and Salt Lake City, Utah temples. (Those two temples have temple workers act out the endowment ceremony instead of showing a movie in those two temples.)

Mormons believe they must wear special underwear (which can only be purchased in special Mormon Church owned stores) and learn secret Masonic handshakes in order to go to Heaven.

Take special note of the “Law of Consecration” that is at the 58:40 mark. Mitt Romney has sworn to obey this oath countless times. Do you really want the President of the United States to be a man who has sworn to “consecrate” all of his “time, talents and everything with which the Lord has blessed him with or with which he WILL BE blessed with” to the Mormon Church?!?!

It seems to me that THAT oath might conflict with the oath of office.

John Williams conducts the Mormon Tabernacle Choir, Orchestra at Temple Square, and International Children’s Choir in performing the 2002 Winter Olympic theme song “Call of the Champions” during the Cultural Olympiad concert, February 9, 2002. “Call of the Champions” was composed by John Williams for the 2002 Olympic Games.

“Citius, Altius, Fortius!” That was the soaring sound that was heard during the Salt Lake 2002 Winter Olympic Games. Those three Latin words, meaning “Faster, Higher, Stronger,” echoed throughout millions of homes as people around the world tuned in to watch those games. “Call of the Champions” was a spectacular collaboration that inspired hearts and lifted spirits of a nation still reeling from the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks. The Mormon Tabernacle Choir performed the national anthem at the opening ceremonies, which included a tribute using the flag that was flown at Ground Zero.

In his fourth time composing music for the Olympic games, famed composer John Williams was excited to know that he would have the Mormon Tabernacle Choir to distinguish the piece from previous compositions, saying, “I was like a giddy child working with them, I loved it.” This resulted in a thrilling five-minute work involving chorus and orchestra. Conducted by Williams, the Utah Symphony and the Choir performed the song at the opening ceremonies. It is featured on the albums American Journey by John Williams and the Choir’s album Spirit of America.

The Olympic games in Salt Lake City were the most watched Olympics ever at the time and are now third on the all-time list. The opening ceremonies of the 2002 winter games still holds the number-one spot for total viewership. During those winter games, the Choir participated in the Cultural Olympiad with four signature concerts, one of which featured John Williams. In the classic video above, Williams conducts the Choir, Orchestra at Temple Square, and the International Children’s Choir in a breathtaking rendition of “Call of the Champions.”

Temple garments are worn by faithful Latter-day Saints as a reminder of sacred beliefs and commitments. Sometimes inaccurately referred to as “Mormon underwear” or “magical underwear.” While the temple garment is a sacred representation of an individual’s commitment to God including living a good, honorable life —the accurate and respectful term of such underwear is “temple garment.”
