Dear Gramps,

Can Satan hear things that are talked about in the temple?






I am unable to find any doctrinal declaration that Satan is not able to hear words spoken in the temple. I have heard temple patrons specify that the adversary is unable to tempt us while we are in the temple, however I have never read any official doctrine specifying a person cannot be tempted within the temple either. When I contemplate this question, I believe the adversary is definitely able to hear what is spoken within the walls of the temple. I don’t see any reason why he would be stopped.
