The Mormon Church is not a Christian church. It is a secretive, deceptive cult, notwithstanding the blather of some Evangelical Christians who have toned down their criticisms of the LDS church and have instead adopted a “softly-softly” approach to Mormonism.
The LDS church has secret (disregard their euphemistic word “sacred”) temple ceremonies and enough is known about these ceremonies (from testimonies of former Mormons,) to place the LDS church in the camp of non-Christian religions.
They toned down one of their temple ceremonies (called the Endowment) in 1990, removing the blood-curdling Masonic-like penalties which the ceremony threatened the partaker with, figuratively, not literally, if they divulged what they had experienced. However, as the following video shows, it remains a bizarre, even frightening ceremony.
Watch if you wish to know the truth about the “most sacred of all” temple ceremony for the Mormons. Incidentally, much of the religious “work” undertaken in Mormon temples by Mormons is for the dead.

The LDS church are very conscious of their public image, and, because they have received negative publicity regarding their temple ceremonies (among other things,) last year, the LDS (Mormon) Church produced a video ostensibly to demystify the ceremonies that take place within their temples.
We have provided a link to the video and it is a carefully packaged, glossy presentation, mostly devoid of truth, and calculated to portray Mormonism in a “gorgeous” light! The LDS leader who guides the viewer through the video is one William Walker, a very clever, softly spoken, and disarmingly shrewd presenter whose whole demeanour is calculated to deceive the unwary.
