Do I need to confess my dating problems to my bishop?

While dating early may not be something you need to confess to your bishop, you should repent by asking Heavenly Father’s forgiveness for not following the standard set by modern prophets. Part of that repentance should include a change of heart and a commitment to stop dating, if you are still under 16.

What does the Bible say about dating?

For the Strength of Youth says, “Dating can help you develop lasting friendships and eventually find an eternal companion” ( [2001], 24). Your ultimate goal is to spend eternity with Heavenly Father, and in His kingdom we will live as eternal families.

Is delaying dating a sin?

No, delaying dating is not a sin. For the Strength of Youth says, “Not all teenagers need to date or even want to. Many young people do not date during their teen years because they are not yet interested, do not have opportunities, or simply want to delay forming serious relationships.

What is the ultimate goal of dating?

So the ultimate goal of dating is to find an eternal companion you can make and keep temple covenants with.

Should I confess my sins to my bishop?

Do you need to talk to your bishop about your mistakes?

What is the role of the bishop in confession?

The Bishop is tasked with being a Judge in Zion. In a confessional, the Bishop is Jesus Christs proxy. Since Christ completed the Atonement, only he has power to forgive you of your sins. Thus, confessing to your Bishop equals confessing to the Savior himself. Gender has nothing to do with repentance.

Can a bishop threaten a member?

Bishops arent to threaten anyone, and if so, this is why we have stake presidents. If a person is feeling inappropriately judged, then they should set an appointment with their stake president reviewing the details with him. I cant confirm what happened to you as I dont know both sides.

Not a sin. That’s love (unselfish concern/provision for another). Are you being romantic primarily to seduce the other person into bed? That’s probably sinful. It’s lust (preoccupation with satisfaction of personal sexual urges). To me, it seems that romance that is centered around preparation for sex is likely quite sinful.
