There is no proof he was a "child molester to begin with" and he is not a Mormon any longer.As usual, you are the only one here given an intelligent response, so I'll address this in the same manner.
And as that is your personal belief, I'm not debating that. What I'm pointing out is what the LDS church is claiming.
I'm not asking for perfection at the Bishop's level. I'm just asking why God would put a child molester in that position to begin with? God would certainly know the man's heart. And what I'm really debating here is whether or not God even had anything to do with the process at all. Mormonism is teaching trust where it honestly shouldn't always be given. It isn't men doing the calling, but God. If you can't trust God who can you trust? But I see the whole system as big lie. There is no revelation, there is no priesthood, just people depending on feelings and impressions, and because of it the perverts can get in, just like in the Catholic church.
We take a man's word on whether or not he is called of God, but we watch his actions and works to judge it true or not. We don't put our faith in his works but in our relationship with Jesus Christ. We don't look to any living man on the level Mormons do their Prophets, as being to only spokesman for God on Earth.
Jesus put Judas Iscariot as his apostle - he was a good man at that time to begin with - than he turned him over to the authorities and ended up hanging himself because of his sin in the end.
