wash_ma Posted November 12, 2010 Report Share Posted November 12, 2010 Before being married, but after attending the temple, I broke the law of chastity. After being married, I found out that I might have a child from this pre-marital sin. I have confessed my sins to my wife, bishop and stake president. I was told by the stake president that there will be a church council, but not until and after there has been a paternity test done. He said that knowing if the child is mine will make a big difference on the discipline given. I am guessing that what he is implying is that if the child is not mine, I will be disfellowshipped, but if the child is mine, I will be excommunicated. I am having a hard time understanding why this would make a difference in discipline. I thought fornication was a grievous sin, no matter the consequences of that decision. Please help me understand a little more. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
