Aaronic Priesthood - What are my Responsibilities?
Posted 17 March 2008 - 09:18 PM
Ghost. Sunday (16th) I was confirmed the Aaronic Priesthood. It was
So, I'm wondering - what are my responsibilities as a holder of the
Aaronic Priesthood? I guess I can bless the bread and water and
pass it out. I can baptize but only with permission. What other
responsibilities come with this? Home teaching? Anything else?
And, I know about D&C 84:41
41 But whoso breaketh this acovenant after he hath received it, and altogether turneth therefrom, shall bnot have forgiveness of sins in this world nor in the world to come.
No, I will not be turning away from this. And after reading 3rd Nephi chapters 8
and 9 - now way will I be turnign away!

-You are to be observant and willing to do the Lord's Will.
-You are to see that there is no iniquity in the church, like gossip.(this is often not fulfilled because it is "not considered your place" to make judgments concerning the sins and iniquities of others.)
-You are to strengthen and watch over the church by teaching and exhorting all to come unto Christ.
-You are to be assigned home teaching families which you will have direct stewardship over.
-You may administer the Sacrament by passing, preparing, or blessing the Sacrament.
-You may baptize under direction and authority from the Bishop.
-You may ordain other members to the Aaronic Priesthood under direction and authority from the Bishop.
-You are to assist the missionary effort.
-You are to Teach the ordinances and principles of the Gospel, or the doctrine by the Spirit.
-You are to first learn(know them and do your best to fulfill them) the duties, and doctrine for yourself and then strengthen others with your knowledge.

I can ordain other members into the Aaronic Priesthood? I thought
one had to be in the Melchizedek Priesthood to ordain others.
Or is that for giving the gift of the Holy Ghost?

Nice hand, friend, but those are not the cards I dealt you.
Impenetrability! That's what I say!
