Product Description

Why not just a little divination from the Word of Wisdom? Why not just a little detour when it comes to the Law of Chastity? Well, why not just a little touch on a hot stove? Sure, you can heal from the burn, but why go through it if you don't have to? In his friendly, reassuring style, Brad Wilcox talks frankly to youth and YSA about issues that matter. Maybe one drink of alcohol or one cigarette will not be enough to make you an alcoholic or give you cancer. Perhaps one unauthorized sexual experience will not give you a sexually transmitted disease. Nevertheless, the immediate consequence of any sin is that we distance ourselves from the Spirit and in that instant we lose the safety, comfort, guidance, and companionship that the Spirit offers. When we distance ourselves from the Spirit, we lose perspective, strength, peace, and joy. Perhaps most important, we lose time. It takes time to reach our potential, and sin wastes time. Sin is not a Ferris wheel ride. it's a touch on a hot stove. Anyone who would ask, "Why not just a little?" is overlooking the pain that would be associated with such a choice. In this talk Brad Wilcox assures his listeners that it is important (and possible) to resist temptations and live clean, wholesome, and virtuous lives.
