“And to bring about his eternal purposes in the end of man, after he had created our first parents, and the beasts of the field and the fowls of the air, and in fine, all things which are created, it must needs be that there was an opposition; even the forbidden fruit in opposition to thetree of life; the one being sweet and the other bitter. Wherefore, the Lord God gave unto man that he should act for himself.” – 2 Nephi 2:15-16
“Rise above any rationalizations that prevent us from making righteous decisions, especially with respect to serving Jesus Christ. In Isaiah we are taught we must “refuse the evil, and choose the good.” – Quentin L Cook
