“Getting a Temple Recommend,” Friend, October 2021
When you get your temple recommend, you will have an interview with your bishop or branch president. You can ask him anything you want. You can also have a parent come with you, if you’d like. Here are some of the things he will talk about with you.
Do you have faith in Heavenly Father, Jesus Christ, and the Holy Ghost?
Do you have a testimony of Jesus Christ’s Atonement and in the Restoration of His Church?
Do you sustain (support) your Church leaders (like the prophet, the apostles, and your bishop)?
Do you strive (try hard) to keep your mind and body clean and pure?
Do you follow the teachings of the Church of Jesus Christ in how you treat others?
Do you strive to keep the Sabbath holy?
Do you strive to be honest?
Do you pay a full 10-percent tithing?
Do you understand and obey the Word of Wisdom?
Are there any serious sins you need to repent of?
Do you feel you are worthy to enter the Lord’s house?
