Temple Worthiness

To be Temple Worthy in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is to be able to sit with the bishop and answer Yes to a series of questions that assess your commitment to living the gospel of Jesus Christ. Questions such as:

Do you have faith in and a testimony of God the Eternal Father, His Son Jesus Christ, and the Holy Ghost?

Do you have a testimony of the Atonement of Christ and of His role as Savior and Redeemer?

Do you have a testimony of the restoration of the gospel in these the latter days?

Do you sustain the President of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints as the Prophet, Seer, and Revelator?

Do you live the law of chastity?

Is there anything in your conduct relating to members of your family that is not in harmony with the teachings of the Church?

Do you strive to keep the covenants you have made, to attend your sacrament and other meetings, and to keep your life in harmony with the laws and commandments of the gospel?

Are you honest in your dealings with your fellowmen?

And finally,  Do you consider yourself worthy to enter the Lord’s house and participate in temple ordinances?

Some days, I feel worthy, others, well, I’m working on it.
