I'm just curious if someone were to confess to the bishop of illegal activity what does he have to do? Does he have to report you? I know it seems obvious that I'm doing something illegal but I'm actually not, just curious


might depend where u live?

"Illegal actions? Obviously you don't want to talk about the details and that's fine. But if you had an inappropriate relationship with an underage person he probably needs to report you."

Interesting Question    
"I didn't even really think about that before I included my bishop on an email stating that I might have had sex with an underage guy. I don't know what can be done about it though. It was 5 years ago, and I don't know his name. He said he was 20 something when I met him on an adult chat site, but I now don't think he was 18. If I ever get an appointment with my bishop and meet with him I'll let you know if anything comes of it. Confessing is the right thing to do though, even if it does mean getting into trouble legally.

"Each one who resolves to climb that steep road to recovery must gird up for the fight of a lifetime. But a lifetime is a prize well worth the price. This challenge uniquely involves the will, and the will can prevail. Healing doesn’t come after the first dose of any medicine. So the prescription must be followed firmly, bearing in mind that it often takes as long to recover as it did to become ill. But if made consistently and persistently, correct choices can cure. "
