Thanks for the reply. I think I may have written a confusing post. I am active - every Sunday and home teaching and helping out at the Store-House when I can. As for my Bishop - that's where the problem lies. My wife and I have had some issues in our marriage and she went to him about it. I don't know what she said to him, but he's pretty much been a jerk to me ever since. No, he's not there to judge as he is commanded not to, but he should be there to offer compassion, understanding, charity, and guidance. It seems to me that he's got it backwards. His attitude is "I'm the Bishop, so what I say goes." And yes, he's actually said this. He's also said in Sacrament that if anyone doesn't like what he says or advises to do, don't got the Stake President because "He'll just tell you to talk to me about it." It seems that I'm not the only one with an issue, but it also seems taboo to talk about with other members in the ward. I realize that the Church is perfect, but the people aren't. His attitude is not causing me to want to be inactive, either. After all, the last time I checked, the sign on the wall said the Church of Jesus Christ, not the church of the bishop. I guess more than anything, it's causing me to feel defensive and scrutinized, and I really don't need that from my church leaders. Should I go to the Stake President about this? This has been going on for about a year now and I need to move past it.
