I believe strongly the temple is meant to be for the living to internalize a connection to all humanity (to have our hearts sealed to all of God's children) and not primarily for the salvation of the dead. That will happen at some point, if it has to happen.
I find great
meaning in and love the temple and its symbolism, even though I don't believe in any
literal saving through the ordinances themselves.
I also like a place of
peace where I can let my mind roam without any distractions - and,
having attended for almost 30 years, I include the play itself in that
description of distraction most of the time.
