Churchco has consistently said that people need to repent of their sins, Repentance includes:

- sorrow for sins, remorse
- confession - admission to those involved
- restitution; if you stole something, U don't get to keep it if U repent.
- 'go and sin no more'

- QUESTION:

Are the above items enforced for new converts who wish to join ChurchCo (Or, does baptism remove their sins without the above steps ?)?

When I was a mishi the only time restitution mattered is if the law was involved. Meaning we avoided people going to jail, parolees, and folks in the mafia, and murders when they would confess to us, which happened occasionally.

My advice. Never confess anything to clergy. If something bothers you. Write it down and then burn the paper and embrace the image mentally of what’s bothering you being destroyed and be done with it.

Googling it was easy.

"As with any new member, the process begins with a sincere desire in faith to do the will of the Father by being baptized. It continues with a searching inventory of all our past sins and an unreserved effort to cease them, confess them, make restitution where possible, and never return to them. After baptism, we receive the right to the constant companionship of the Holy Ghost, contingent upon our always remembering the Savior in all we think, do, and are. And thus we are made clean (see 2 Nephi 31:17)."

Pay tithing. Attend tithing settlement and proclaim you paid an honest tithe. Get out of Bishop Interview card awarded. Pass Go. Pass repentance stipulations.

Didn't you see the new Mormon version of Monopoly?
