Elder Richard G. Scott, a member of the Quorum of the Twelve:
“Our Eternal Father defined truth and established what is right and wrong before the creation of this earth. He also fixed the consequences of obedience and disobedience to those truths. He defined our right to choose our path in life so that we would grow, develop, and be happy, but we do not have the right to choose the consequences of our acts. Those who willfully, consistently disobey His commandments will inevitably learn that truth. Joseph Smith was inspired to record, ‘When we obtain any blessing from God, it is by obedience to that law upon which it is predicated’ ( D&C 130:21 )” (in Conference Report, Oct. 1992, 82; or Ensign, Nov. 1992, 61 ).
