“With free agency, however, there comes responsibility. If man is to be
rewarded for righteousness and punished for evil, then common justice demands that he be given the power of independent action. A knowledge of good and evil is essential to man’s progress on earth. If he were coerced to do right at all times or helplessly enticed to commit sin, he would merit neither a blessing for the first nor punishment for the second.

Man’s responsibility is correspondingly operative with his free agency. Actions in harmony with divine law and the laws of nature will bring happiness, and those in opposition to divine truth, misery. Man is responsible not only for every deed, but also every idle word and thought. Freedom of the will and the responsibility associated with it are fundamental aspects of Jesus’ teachings.

Throughout our Lord's ministry he emphasized the worth of the individual and exemplified what is now expressed in modern revelation as ‘his work and his glory.’ Only through the divine gift of soul freedom is such progress possible”.....David O.. Mackay
