Ponder, if you will, these ten truths:

  1. God gave us agency – equality of opportunity, the right to choose, and the obligation to be responsible and accountable for our actions.
  1. God will give no blessing to one of His children that is not available to all of His children.
  1. Satan preached equality of outcome – do whatever you want, “God will beat us with a few stripes, and at last we shall be saved in the kingdom of God.” (2 Nephi 28)
  1. We progress by experiencing the consequences of our efforts.
  1. Where there is agency, there will always be unequal effort.
  1. Where there are unequal efforts, there are unequal outcomes.
  1. If efforts and outcomes co-vary, there is justice.
  1. If equal outcomes are mandated regardless of efforts, there is no justice.
  1. If there is no justice, there is no agency and God’s plan is thwarted.
  1. If there is no justice, God ceases to be God. (Alma 42)
