You know. Looking at the pictures some sand bags might've been useful. I'm fairly certain the members would've been more than happy to throw some around the temple?

Why would you need sandbags when you've got prayers?

So much for their prayers...

Quote:
“It appears water to the depth of four or five inches has gone inside the temple,” Houston temple President Marshall Hayes said in the statement. “That includes a baptistry, a marriage waiting room, dressing rooms, kitchen and laundry. We haven’t been able to go inside so we really don’t know the extent of the damage.”

Some GA family member will already be working up a costing for the refurbishment work...

Actually, it was the Samoa temple that burnt to the ground and it happened while it was being renovated perhaps caused by careless construction workers. The god of the Samoans must have been displeased with the island offerings.

Gordon B Hinckley dedicated the original TEMPLE OF DOOM in August of 1983 but Samoa god refused to hearken and burnt it to the ground in 2003:

Gordon B Hinckley wrote:
Wilt Thou smile with favor upon this holy edifice and by Thy power preserve and protect it. . . . May the structure in all of its aspects be preserved from the ravages of nature and any vandalism or defilement of man.


Gordon B Hinckley had the opportunity to rededicate the new temple in September 2005 and added an extra special blessing:

Gordon B Hinckley wrote:
Now Father, we pray that Thou wilt watch over this sacred structure and preserve it from the kind of destructive force which destroyed its predecessor building.

It was a divine miracle, Mormon god was praised for sparing the Houston temple from the 2016 flood waters but miracles have since ceased and he has failed to "save" his temple now.

Here is a quote from a faithful member praising Mormon god for the miracle in 2016:

Quote:
All the rivers are still about to overflow. School was out all week, and water was up to 22 feet high in some places. But check this out! BIG MIRACLE: the area where the temple is was flooded super bad. Although many mansions were destroyed and the roads in and out were closed for three days, the water never touched the temple. God protected it from the flood.

I realize that no one cares what I have to say on this but I think people would be better off if they just their mouths, let themselves express gratitude and be done with it.

A faith promoting LDS blogger bragged about how the Houston temple was miraculously spared in the 2016 flood:

Quote:
God’s Hand

In spite of all the flooding and difficulty that came with it, it was a miracle that our temple was protected from the raging flood waters. Still, it wasn’t the first time. Temples around the world have weathered earthquakes, hurricanes and other natural disasters.

The faith promoting blogger than goes on to state how the Baton Rouge Louisiana Temple was saved as if to imagine Moses himself parting the water! (I'm not making this up):

Quote:
During Hurricane Katrina in 2005, the Baton Rouge Louisiana Temple was protected as the flood waters split in half, moving around the temple, and leaving minimal damage behind.

So, I would like to know what this faith promoting blogger would have to say about the Houston temple being flooded in 2017. Where is the divine protection? Where is the miracle? Why weren't the waters divided this time around?

I would actually like to know why the Lord *ever* lets any of HIS own houses be ruined by his own handiwork in creation. Isn't that just a wee bit backward for an Almighty God?! I mean think about it. He certainly CAN save his OWN house, any temple, by simply redirecting the hurricane, or better yet, just simply stopping it from doing any damage. It's a really funny sort of weird God going on around here I have to say.......

Too bad. Not deep enough for the youth to do necro baptisms outside.

Paul, "Elohim works in mysterious ways".

LDS Inc could not afford new flooring in the Houston house of handshakes. Elohim said he would get the US government to pay for it via FEMA.

In 2016 the Houston temple grounds were flooded but the actual temple was spared, consequently, it was heralded as a miracle by faith promoting Morons.

LDSLiving wrote:
Temple Grounds Flood After Major Storms in Texas, Temple Remains Miraculously Untouched . . . . In the midst of these violent storms, the Houston Texas Temple has miraculously remained untouched by the flooding, though water is lapping around the temple grounds.


What is the miracle for the Houston temple in 2017? It now appears that the waters are miraculously flowing inside the temple and the font will be filled with Harvey's water.

Faith promoting morons who claimed 2016 was a miracle from God can choke on that.

I stumbled upon r/ exmormon yesterday and some outright brilliant dude answered this. Scorched earth. You know how Joel Osteen had to open up his stadium to refugees? What if the temple was the only high ground spared? That's a dedicated temple and can't be defiled by the unworthy.

The miracle is that the members get even more blessings that come from paying for a temple twice.
Rather than any insurance firm getting all those blessings.

Unfortunately, it doesn't count. It must be fully immersed, steeple and all. You would think Mormon God would know this.

Right. it wasn't a baptism at all. It was divine vandalism by the hand of the Lord's own hand against his own house. The Lord himself sent the dirty water to muck up his house and defile it with a nasty stench and filth -- the Lord has shown a total disregard for his own holy house. He's shamed his house and disrespected his people.

The Mormons should just tear the temple down and sell it for scrap and give the proceeds to the hurricane victims. The Lord doesn't deserve to keep his house but should be evicted. He has proven he has no regard for his people and is not a god of miracles.

Behold, it's a miracle! The filthy waters that flooded the Lord's holy house are now receding. The Lord bore his mighty arm and has caused the waters to move back.

Folks, the Lord truly is at the helm. Now it's time to clean up the mess he made.

(KUTV) The LDS church reported that after further assessments, its Houston Texas Temple has suffered "significant" flood damage from Hurricane Harvey.
On its information site MormonNewsroom.org, the church said the building's basement experienced water "a foot deep to waist deep."
The church said its baptistry room was "flooded to the top," while the main floor took on "several" inches of water that will require the replacement of carpet and furniture. Temples are sacred houses of God to members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, different from neighborhood churches used for weekly services.

http://kutv.com/news/local/lds-temple-s ... y-recovery

If the basement took on a foot to a waist deep of water, how come the baptistery (also in the basement) was flooded to the top?

Given the near miss in 2016, what did the Church do to further protect the temple from the floods that the Prophets must have seen coming...? I’ll give you a clue - it’s the opposite of something.
