He hath given unto you that ye might know good from evil, and he hath given unto you that ye might choose life or death. . . .
— Helaman 14:31
"By making choices consistent with eternal truth, you will develop righteous character and increasing strength to resist temptation," said Elder Richard G. Scott of the Quorum of the Twelve during the October 1998 general conference. "You are assured of the help of God in fulfilling your worthy decisions. You qualify to be led by the Spirit, to choose the correct path."
