Agency Position Statement
One of the greatest gifts we are given is our gift of agency. It is a gift we had in the premortal life. It is so valuable that a war was waged over our right to have it. We know because we are here on earth in a mortal body that we used our agency there well. Now we are being tested to see how we will use it in mortality. Because of our agency we are free to choose. But we are not free to choose our consequences. When we make good choices we are blessed. When our choices are poor we have to suffer the negative consequences. Sometimes the consequences take a while to catch up to us, but they do inevitably catch up. Ultimately, through our agency we choose happiness or misery. The choice is ours.
