Ch. 4: Freedom to Choose

from Gospel Principles:

We make choices everyday. Heavenly Father desires that we choose the right. He has given us the scriptures, prophets, and the Holy Ghost to help us do so. In opposition, Satan will tempt us to transgress, to sin, to be like unto him. We ought to remember that sin is bondage and following Satan's temptations actually limit our choices. Here's an example that suggests how this works. "Imagine seeing a sign on the seashore that reads: Danger--whirlpool. No swing allowed here. We might think that is a restriction. But is it? We still have many choices. We are free to swim somewhere else. We are free to walk along the beach and pick up seashells. We are free to watch the sunset. We are free to go home. We are also free to ignore the sign and swim in the dangerous place. But once the whirlpool has us in its grasp and we are pulled under, we have very few choices. We can try to escape, or we can call for help, but we may drown."
