Why And How To Increase Your Agency

Knowledge Increases Agency

Book of Mormon Marriage And Family Study

1 Nephi 17: 22

“for they kept the statutes and judgments of the Lord, and all his commandments.”

“The beauty of the gospel of Jesus Christ is that it pours knowledge into our souls and shows things in their true light. With that enhanced perspective, we can discern more clearly the choices before us and their consequences. We can, therefore, make more intelligent use of our agency. Too many fall into unanticipated traps and unhappiness because they either lack or ignore the gospel light. They are unaware of their options or are confused about the outcomes of their choices. Ignorance effectively limits their agency.” Elder D. Todd Christofferson

Gospel knowledge increases your agency. Faith is a principle of power and by pondering the Book of Mormon our faith increases. We grow closer to Christ, and therefore have a greater desire to repent of our sins and overcome the world.

When we can see things in their true light, we make better choices and avoid the corruption of the world. Satan wants us to be miserable. However, we can overcome him with increased knowledge and agency.

What a great gift we can give our children!

The knowledge and power to defeat the Devil.

The mission of the Book of Mormon is “the convincing of the Jew and Gentile that JESUS is the CHRIST, the ETERNAL GOD.”

Additionally, the introduction to the Book of Mormon, Joseph Smith said; “I told the brethren that the Book of Mormon was the most correct of any book on earth, and the keystone of our religion, and a man would get nearer to God by abiding by its precepts, than by any other book.”

If your child is convinced that Jesus Christ is God, he will follow Him and walk with Him.

What if the Book of Mormon convinced your child that Jesus Christ God at the young age of 8 or 12?
