Video: Elder David A. Bednar on how temples change hearts | Church News


This is a “remarkable season” of temple building for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, said Elder David A. Bednar of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles. In this Church News video titled “Come to Zion,” Elder Bednar explains that the Church’s 315 dedicated, announced or under construction temples are one of the great indications that the Restoration is ongoing.

“In the early history of the Church, the call to the Latter-day Saints all over the world was: ‘Come to Zion, come to Kirtland, [Ohio], come to Nauvoo, [Illinois], come to Salt Lake.’ And Joseph [Smith] taught that the purpose of the gathering was so that the Saints would be in a position – in a place – where temples could be built.”

Now in a world that is growing increasingly dark and wicked, “access to the power of godliness through the covenants and ordinances” is a great blessing for Latter-day Saints, he said.
