Will drinking energy drinks and caffeinated soda keep Mormons from being able to go to the temple?
Anything that defiles our bodies (hurts them, makes it harder for them to feel the spirit of God) pushes us farther away from God. The temple is a place where those who are close to God can go to feel closer to him. Mormons also think of their
bodies as temples. If we are filling our bodies with chemicals that may harm us, our Bishop may wonder why we are doing so, and ask us what the temple means to us, or why we feel that we are ready to attend the temple.
There is a great article on energy drinks called:

About This Website
My name is Marc, I live in California, and I've been a Mormon for over 25 years. Even though I know a lot about the Mormon religion, I still consider myself a beginner student of Jesus Christ and his teachings. On this website I write about any spiritual or Mormon church-related topic that catches my interest. Latest Quote
Celebrating Our Differences
"Obviously the Lord has created us with different personalities, as well as differing degrees of energy, interest, health, talent, and opportunity. So long as we are committed to righteousness and living a life of faithful devotion, we should celebrate these divine differences, knowing they are a gift from God. We must not feel so frightened, so threatened and insecure; we must not need to find exact replicas of ourselves in order to feel validated as women of worth. There are many things over which we can be divided, but one thing is needful for our unity—the empathy and compassion of the living Son of God."
--Patricia T. Holland, "One Thing Needful," October 1987

Helaman 8:24: And now, seeing ye know these things and cannot deny them
except ye shall lie, therefore in this ye have sinned, for ye
have rejected all these things, notwithstanding so many evidences
which ye have received; yea, even ye have received all things,
both things in heaven, and all things which are in the earth, as
a witness that they are true.
