Whenever he thought about it, he felt terrible. And so, at last, he came to a fateful decision. He decided not to think about it. ~John-Roger and Peter McWilliams

Dear Pushing the Line: Board Question #30343

If you're questioning it, ask the bishop! Bishops are wonderful guys, there to help you. Don't wait until you for sure HAVE crossed that line before talking to him. Go talk to him now, and even if there is *nothing* to repent of at this point, he can help you avoid reaching the point where serious repentance is needed. My advice? Don't get that close in the first place. It only brings pain. Instead of asking "How bad can I be?" (John Bytheway), ask "How good can I be?" Prove to yourself and others that you can have a good time and build relationships, but all within the bounds the Lord has set. There's a reason for those guidelines. Trust Him.
