Shoot, I went to the temple when I was young, and guess what happened? I took the g's off a few weeks later, and left the church. Ten years later, following a melt-down after a near-tragedy, I decided that I wanted to try the church again. When I did go back, and became active again, the bishop in the ward that I was in at the time suggested that I work to return to the temple. I thought "Sure, last time was a bust, but why not." It took four years of study and striving to live the commandments before I was ready, and when I did go, I didn't think that it was strange in the least. I loved it--talk about feeling close to God!!! That was an amazing experience.
My husband, on the other had, is a convert of five years. He was very ready to join the church--in fact, he sought it out and was ready to be baptized after the first missionary lesson. He told me that when he went to the temple for the first time, however, he thought it was "funny." After going to the temple, he told me that he was thinking "What have I gotten myself into?" He said that he prayed about it, and received a warm and comforting answer was that he was to continue going back.
My husband and I attend the temple nearly every week now. I think when you reach that point in your life to really be spiritually ready, then that's when you will understand what is taught there.
What really bothered me about what you said is the temple is satanic in nature. That is absolutely not true in the least. In fact, it is taught in the temple that satan is the enemy to God and mankind and the role he plays in attempting to defeat God's plan of salvation and progression of God's children. You would know that if you were paying attention.
Think about the other things you learn about in the temple--God's purpose for creating this word, His purpose for putting us here in the word, the reasons that the fall of mankind was a necessary step in growth. . .everything is taught by symbolism, but the symbolism is what reminds us each day, while living our daily lives, that God loves us and that we are His children. Some people only look at the symbolism and can't see beyond that for the deeper meaning behind it.
