Because of the Fall of man, the natural order of things has become chaotic. In nature, there is an order for all things, but with man there is chaos,… Everything is distorted and turned around. Because of our disobedience to the commandments of our Heavenly Father, we have lost the natural order. In order to reestablish this order, we must practice abstinence and obedience.
