Mormons often point to this scripture in Malachi to help explain the necessity of temple work–to avoid having the earth being smitten with a curse:
Malachi 4:5 Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the LORD:
6 And he shall turn the heart of the fathers to the children, and the heart of the children to their fathers, lest I come and smite the earth with a curse.
Which helps to explain why we do so much genaelogical work, it’s part of the linking of generations through the power of God’s priesthood. But it occurred to me that most other non-LDS religions read this and think “?What?”.
Any other interpretations?
