Visit the Church's new, upgraded website at new.lds.org.
The media-rich site emphasizes the teachings of living prophets and apostles, provides easy access to scriptures, and offers new tools for online gospel study.
I did some exploring and would like to introduce you to some of the new features.
I know, I know I've featured this on the blog before, BUT now it's even better...the design, the multimedia, the thoughtful choices of articles etc.
Study by Topic
I love this way of studying the scriptures. You get a complete picture of a gospel subject.
For example, let's look at the Temple topic.
"Temples are literally houses of the Lord. They are holy places of worship where individuals make sacred covenants with God....
Then Reference Scriptures...Isaiah 2: 1-3."Temples are places of learning. Their principal purpose is to provide ordinances necessary for the children of God to enable them to return to dwell with Him."
"1 The word that aIsaiah the son of Amoz bsaw concerning Judah and Jerusalem.Next is a list of related recent church magazine articles.
"3 And many people shall go and say, Come ye, and let us ago up to the bmountain of the Lord, to the chouse of the God of Jacob; and he will dteach us of his ways, and we will walk in his paths: for out of eZion shall go forth the flaw, and the word of the Lord from Jerusalem."
"2 And it shall come to pass in the alast days, that the bmountain of the Lord’s chouse shall be destablished in the top of the mountains, and shall be exalted above the hills; and all enations shall flow unto it.
UAdd a Note
For example, Happiness and Joy in Temple Work, by Franklin D. Richards in 1986.
"A temple is a retreat from the vicissitudes of life, a place of prayer and meditation providing an opportunity to receive inner peace, inspiration, guidance, and, frequently, solutions to the problems that vex our daily lives. UAdd a NoteAnd last, Additional Study Materials, such as the Encyclpedia of Mormonisn, the Bible Dictionary and so forth.
"A temple is a place where the divine spark in man, or the infinite in man, can seek the infinite in God"
