I wonder if members with the second anointing go Around doing shit like having affairs and drinking and doing drugs and taking the Lords name in vain going to mass and what not. I mean hey whatever going to be a God after you die no matter what.
Truthfully I think there are very few if any - maybe a handful - Who believe in anything is absurd as a second anointing. Endowments are the kind of things that you can just sort of phase out and quit thinking about because you get forced to do them over and over so it’s truthfulness or it’s reality kind of becomes a part of your brain that is just unexamined I imagine. I can’t think of any other explanation for why someone would willingly go once a week or twice a month for decades To sit through a two hour session. It’s just… like Having a gun held to your brain every week, Or having Soussa music playing in your head super loud. Drown out the nonsense through fear or just zoning out.
I really can’t explain how else people can do it month after month year after year. my parents go all the time, my dad‘s a temple worker, I bet they’ve been to thousands of sessions. I’m sure they covet nothing more than something like a second anointing, or at least the blessings that they thin accompany such a thing.
And above all it just seems so boring and such a waste of time. With travel preparation and going home it’s four hours out of both my parents week, eating up time out of otherwise busy lives- The busy life of mothers and fathers and grandparents and a doctor etc- they know where their priorities lie though.
I’m sorry, this was more about her rants about the temple and general. I wonder if the temple like the Omaha temple is even considered ornate and special enough to have anything like a second anointing - I wonder if they only happen in temples in Utah.
