"A Family Is Forever" - Mormonism and It's Temples

Among the many posts and articles I have written is one simply entitled "Temples," about the temple of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.  Temples are central to marriage.  It is the goal for all members to make it to the temple.  There is even a children's song which begins:  I love to see the temple, I'm going there some day.

Why does Mormonism consider temples to be such great buildings?  Again I'll take the words from the children's song:

"For the temple is a holy place where we are sealed together.  As a child of God, I've learned this truth:  A family is forever."

The Family is what the gospel of Christ is all about.  All people are the children of God, the Father.  There is nothing He wants more than for us to live again in His kingdom.  Likewise, on a smaller scale, everyone on earth has a family.  The relationship of this earthly family is just as important as our spiritual family.  The gospel includes the opportunity for our families to be together forever, even after death.

Inside the temple couples are sealed together not just "till death do us part" but for eternity.  Also in this sacred setting inside the temple families can be sealed together for eternity.

There are other wonderful things that happen inside the temple, but this is one of them.

"A family is forever."
