The mormom church has to get credit for a willingness to spend money on
Biblical temples were used for sacrifices to the God of the Bible. If LDS wish
to spend millions on their holy edifaces, they have every right. In
Biblical times there was one temple, one High Priest, and all tribes flocked to
it, with great hardship and sacrifice in most cases.Lauding LDS
expenses on this expanding building program is another issue. Is it ethical for
Christian denominations to build exquisite holy buildings in the midst of
poverty? It is understandable that a country that will spend billions on its
political elections sees no problem with religions choosing to spend their
capital however they choose.How would Jesus see those choices?
Jesus is the one that told them to build the temple. It is his house so why not
make it best for him. Besides the church already does a lot to alleviate
poverty. Gives jobs to people working on temple. Building the temple is not
causing people to starve. Why don't you ask him how he would feel about
building the temple.
