LDSJewess Posted March 13, 2012 Report Share Posted March 13, 2012 Eowyn, the proper thing to do would have been to make note of it to the temple presidency. They are responsible for making the determination of worthiness in the temple.LDSJ, you are assuming too much. You are assuming she has repented, that she's told her fiancee, and that the Easter Bunny will soon appear to bring chocolate and eggs to all the kiddees in fantasy land. It is not our place to judge, only to ensure the Judge in Israel is aware of the situation. Once shared with the bishop, then it is his issue to manage, not ours. And yes, the young man must also confess his own sins, and allow the judge in Israel to determine the best course of action.Bishops are called of God, but are not mind readers or psychics. We help them by sharing such information and then allowing them to decide how best to handle it.Rameumptom,You have a point but are you also judging? Are you assuming that the jilted boyfriend would be telling the truth? I don't know either party here, but it indeed is the responsibility of each individual to tell the truth at all times and of course during their Temple Recommend interview. No doubt people lie and this may or may not be the case. We do not know. No one knows what is discussed in a Bishops office. I also do not know or assume she has told her finace. BUT is is the responsibility of the finace or any man or woman before they decide to marry is to thoroughly get to know their future spouse. It is their responsibility, otherwise we would be chosing their free agency for them. If either of them choose to marry based on a lie, they will indeed suffer consequences.And not assuming but just something to think about ..... if there were no "new guy" in the picture, and if the original relationship had continued and led to marriage, how willing would sm1487 been to go to the Bishop to confess sins? Something to think about. According to the original post, the girl is a teenager. The two men are RM's and likely perhaps in their early 20's and very young. A lot of emotions are at play here, and I still fee that each person need to be responsibly for their actions and not the others. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
