Without fail every Sunday the Elders Quorum would say that so and so is moving and who can help. You were expected to help especially if you had a truck. If you didn’t help you were a Jack Mormon.
I’ve been a ‘Mormon’ all my adult life. I’ve helped move lots of people – both in and out of our neighborhood – and there have been times when I couldn’t help and therefore didn’t help. I don’t know where some of these ‘beliefs’ come from – who hatched them – but I’ve never been labeled a Jack Mormon because I couldn’t help with any project that was in need of volunteers. I’ve lived this religion since I was 21 and would like to suggest that before you all start throwing all these ‘beliefs’ around, maybe you ought to come out to a few ‘Mormon’ church meetings and see what you think you’re talking about.

Come to a few Mormon church meetings? It’s my understanding, and this comes from the official Mormon church website, that non Mormons are NOT allowed to enter ANY Mormon temple. Also, I wouldn’t come simply because I have already experienced Mormons trying to convert me on several occasions!
Temples are diferrent from conventional churches, seach for a church nearby, you can just go, nothing is going to happen-.
I lol’d big time at the opening post. It’s true until you get to the “jack mormon” conclusion. Nobody ever remembers or cares who showed up at the last moving activity. Usually the elders quorum president or a counselor will be at most moving activities so elders get used to seeing them, and seeing others come and go throughout a moving project. This isn’t a “crazy” belief, it’s just service. Calling it “elders quorum moving services” was funny tho.
your information is incorrect. i am a non mormon (a christian) and have been to church services and functions over a hundred times. the temple is a totally different place. i don’t blame you for not wanting to go but understand that you can at anytime visit, if you were to decide to.
It is important to understand that LDS Temples are for a differnt purpose than the chapels used on the Sabbath day for worship and for most other days for weekly activities.
It is true that non-members do not enter the Temple, however, neither do members of the church who are not esteemed worthy to enter and partake of the blessings that are afforded.
