Safety in Following the Prophets - Notes for a talk

Bednar, Things to act and be acted upon (2nd Nephi 2:14).

How does one become a moral agent? What separates those who act from those who are acted upon? What do we need to become a moral agent?

Control over out choices
D+C 58:28 For the power is in them [men], wherein they are agents unto themselves...

Knowledge of the impact of our choices
Hel 14:30 are free; ye are permitted to act for yourselves; for behold, God hath given unto you a knowledge and he hath made you free.

A destination towards which we may aim
Heb 11:16 But now they desire a better country, that is, an heavenly: wherefore God is not ashamed to be called their God...

D+C 13:6 ...there is no gift greater than the gift of salvation.

The purpose of Apostles, Eph 4

Elder Scott [Speaking of the doctrine of the Atonement]" They must be more than principles you memorize. They must be woven into the very fiber of your being as a powerful bulwark against the rising tide of abomination that infects our world.

Heb 8:10 For this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, saith the Lord; I will put my laws into their mind, and write them in their hearts: and I will be to them a God, and they shall be to me a people...

2nd Cor 3:3 Forasmuch as ye are manifestly declared to be the epistle of Christ ministered by us, written not with ink, but with the Spirit of the living God; not in tables of stone, but in fleshy tables of the heart.

Our life's path is a reflection of our inner self
