I have come to realize that one of the powerful messages of the Book of Mormon is the danger of being held captive. The commandments are a loving protection of any form of captivity or addiction. Our free agency was so important that our Savior was willing to be sacrificed in order for is to have the opportunity to choose and to fail. Today Satan is still trying to take away our free agency by temptations that lead to addictions. I want to always remember that the commandments are a loving offering to protect me from addictions and that if I ever feel punished for bad choices, that the punishment comes from the natural consequences of sin and not from my Heavenly Father that is only trying to protect me from pain and from captivity.
