    This article claims:

    “Turrets — On the corner tower are single spire stones, representing flaming torches.”

    Oh, really? If the writer would just look up at the objects they could have been able to easily tell that they are acanthus buds — NOT “flaming torches.”

    I guess that’s what you get for simply re-hashing something written back in the 70’s.

    I expect more accuracy from a Deseret News/Mormon Times journalist.

  2. A few years ago, I remember learning that Solomon’s temple had two pillars stood just outside the entrance to that temple. Some have suggested that the two “pillars” which stood at the entrance to the Salt Lake Temple were this dispensation’s two witnesses – Joseph and Hyrum (cf. Revelation 3:12.

    A temple is the crowning symbol of a dispensation. The “entry point” to every dispensation is always through “twos”. There must always be not one but two witnesses who will testify to the restoration of saving truths and priesthood keys. That’s what Joseph Fielding Smith taught in his book Doctrines of Salvation.

    So, there must be something more to having twin architectural features at the entrances to ancient and latter-day temples.
