Q:

Dear 100 Hour Board,

When a Temple Sealer is set apart, is he given the same sealing powers as Nephi in Helaman 10, or is his "power" specifically limited to sealing of couples and families?

-I don't know any sealers personally or I'd ask them. Using the word "power" there seems strange but I can't think of a better word for it right now.

A:

Dear you,

DISCLAIMER: This is my opinion and understanding and not based on any official statements.

I'm pretty sure that the President of the Church and the Quorum of the Twelve (collectively) hold the sealing power that was given to Nephi, and that the President delegates the authority to seal couples and families to temple sealers, but not the rest.
