Tempting you to do something horrible would not be the adversary's best strategy,.....You understand that doing something awful would be terribly dangerous to you and to all of your hopes. I am more concerned about slow- moving landslides, about the seemingly insignificant temptations that move us little by little, here an inch and there an inch, away from a sure foundation.
Obedience opens the door to the constant companionship of the Holy Ghost. And the spiritual gifts and abilities activated by the power of the Holy Ghost enable us to avoid deception—and to see, to feel, to know, to understand, and to remember things as they really are. You and I have been endowed with a greater capacity for obedience precisely for these reasons.
