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

Comments:

might depend where u live?    
"I live in alberta and any bishop or pastor can't garantee legal confidialiyt for any unpersucuted crime or if you are thinking about abusing children including teenagers"

Woah!    
"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.

"By emulating the Master, who endured temptations but “gave no heed unto them,” we, too, can live in a world filled with temptations “such as [are] common to man”. Of course Jesus noticed the tremendous temptations that came to him, but He did not process and reprocess them. Instead, He rejected them promptly. If we entertain temptations, soon they begin entertaining us! Turning these unwanted lodgers away at the doorstep of the mind is one way of giving “no heed.” Besides, these would-be lodgers are actually barbarians who, if admitted, can be evicted only with great trauma."
