Mormon Dilemma 186

Bishops are the Judges of Your Worthiness

Young Women Manual 2, Appreciating the Bishop, pg. 41; The bishop presides over every person in the ward and directs their local church activities. All of your adolescent life you will be under the direction of the bishop. He will appoint teachers and supervisors to do his work, but he will be very much interested in your progress. Your life here will be constantly weighed by him, for he is the judge of your worthiness … to receive higher ordinances, and to be worthy to go to the Temple.”

Ephesians 1:6-7; To the praise of the glory of his grace, wherein he hath made us accepted in the beloved. 7 In whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace.

The comforting words from the apostle Paul should be shared with the Mormon people before they go in for their temple worthiness interviews.  It’d be a great idea to share this passage with the bishops as well!
