Allowing you to repent is really a part that is special of bishop s calling. Your conscience will inform you when you need to communicate with him.
You might wonder why you are taught to confess to your bishop or branch president when you have committed severe sins. You could tell yourself, Isn t repentance a individual thing between me personally as well as the Lord? It to God, how come i have to consult with my bishop? if I have stopped my incorrect behavior and possess confessed

Why the Bishop rather than Somebody Else?
Numerous youth feel more content confessing their errors for their moms and dads or youth leaders. Although your parents and leaders can offer necessary help and counsel, the father has declared that the bishop is a very common judge in Israel (see D&C 107:72, 74). He’s got the obligation to look for the worthiness of this people in his ward. By ordination and righteous living, the bishop is eligible for revelation through the Holy Ghost concerning the members of their ward, including you.
