Security or Agency?
President Ezra Taft Benson: "In the war in heaven the devil advocated absolute eternal security at the sacrifice of our freedom...Today the devil as a wolf in a supposedly new suit of sheep's clothing is enticing some men, both in and out of the Church, to parrot his line by advocating planned government-guaranteed security programs at the expense of our liberties. Latter-day Saints should be reminded how and why they voted as they did in heaven. If some have decided to change their votes, they should repent--throw their support on the side of freedom--and cease promoting this subversion."
