Moral Free Agency

This talk given by Daniel H. Ludlow asserts that we as Latter-day Saints should be the most free of any people on the face of this earth. We have all the opportunities of choice that other people have and more because we have the additional laws and principles of the restored gospel. We have all the possibilities of opposites shared by other people and more because of the differences between the brightness of the noonday sun of the restored gospel as compared with the darkness of skepticism, agnosticism, and atheism. We have all the freedom of choice enjoyed by other people and more because we have modern scriptures and living prophets to guide us day by day. Thus if we as Latter-day Saints are not the most free people on the face of the earth, then we should be, because we have to a greater extent the necessary components of free agency.
