If someone gave you an opportunity to get riches, respect, authority, leadership and just about ANY sexual partners that you wanted, and as many of them as you could physically cope with, would YOU succumb to the temptation to actually do it?
To actually get those riches? To get the respect? To take that leadership? To have just about any and every sexual partner that you could physically cope with?
Well, yes, morally we would hope to say that we would not do any of those things.
But put it another way. If you could have anything that you wanted, anything that you desired and you knew that nobody would mind, nobody important that is, that you could do whatever you wanted to do with no possibility of any comeback, are you saying that you would be able to shrug your shoulders, smile and say: "No thank you!"
To be honest, I do not know if I could. And that was the dilemma that Joseph Smith found himself in.
But ultimately Joseph Smith found that there was a price to pay.
