May non LDS get help / assistance from the bishop for food or help with
rent, utilities etc?
Bishop's decision once again, but that is not, in my interpretation, the
main purpose of those funds.
Bishop's are given very wide lattitude in handling these funds for the
good of ALL the people who live within the boundries of his Ward. Many
have been helped, who were not members at the time, but latter joined
Thanks for agreeing with what I said. I agree you made it more clear than I
did. Actually that happens quite a bit, that people receive help, but
certainly not usually on a continuing basis.
But it should be emphasized, I guess, that the Bishop is responsible for the
welfare (repeat welfare) of all the persons living within the boundaries of
his ward. The Fast funds are primarily for bailing out of emergencies. It is
sort of the same idea as giving a man a fish, when what they really need, is
to be taught to fish. So the bishop's duty is to teach.
