Agency means Accountability

 Thanks to Greg Wright's insightful book Satan's War on Agency I have learned some things.

1. Agency is not free. Nowhere in scripture is the term "free agency" found.

2. Satan's plan was not one of compulsion, but one that would supposedly allow us to do whatever we wanted and get away with it. Wright labels the three plans "The University of Freedom" (Satan's real plan); "Force College" (Mormonism's false idea of Satan's plan) and "Law School" (God the Father's plan).

3. See the title of this piece. Agency does not just mean freedom of choice, it means being held accountable for any choice you make.

4. Agency requires choice and different results for those choices.

There is a great section about how to raise an irresponsible child, and how to do the opposite.

I would recommend this book to anyone. It is short but to the point and filled with information anyone can understand.
