God gives us our free agency. He gives us the power to choose Satan.
I just ran into some friendly mormon missionaries out there in the barrio. They seemed like nice enough fellows, but not particularly well-informed about Mormonism. My extensive wikipedia reading allowed me to ask some questions that really stumped them.
In the end, they told me I should talk to God and ask Him if I should become a Mormon. God, apparently, is pro-choice. He wants us to choose him, but we’re also free to choose Satan.
I asked what happened if God told me I should become a Catholic.
“Well, he’s certainly not going to do that!” replied Elder Hoskins.
I talked with them for a few minutes, took their card, and left.
God has not yet answered my question, but every time I ask, I imagine myself giving up fornication and wearing that full-body Mormon underwear, and I can’t help laughing.
Until He responds, I guess I’ll be exercising my right to choose Satan.
