Temple/Shrine Meaning for people
- In the Russian language, as in other Slavic languages, the general word for church is Zarkov and the term khram is used to refer to a church or temple (khram bozhy). Most Christians call their place of worship a church, but many religions use “temples,” a word derived from the English and Latin words of the time, which was important to the Romans, as an appropriate time for sacrifice. The Book of Mormon, the last saint believed to accompany the Bible, refers to a temple built in ancient America by a group of people called Nephites.
- The word “temple” is also used in the tradition of Oriental Christianity and the Oriental Orthodox Church, where the most important words are the house of God, temple, and church. The Spaniards distinguish between a temple, a physical building for religious activities, and a church, which is the physical building of religious activities for a community of religious followers. The use of the word temple arises from the need to distinguish between the construction of a church and the church as seen in the body of Christ.
