Christs' Guidance vs Satan's Deceptions Lesson Handout

So, basically the lesson contrasted Satan's deceptive ways that lead to destruction with Christ's plain ways that lead to ultimate freedom and salvation.
So, going off of this scripture:
"And there are also secret acombinations, even as in times of old, according to the combinations of the bdevil, for he is the founder of all these things; yea, the founder of murder, and cworks of darkness; yea, and he leadeth them by the neck with a flaxen cord, until he bindeth them with his strong cords forever." {2 Nephi 26:22}
I spoke about a rope, which when you break it down and pull it apart is made up of many strands of flax.  These little strands are so soft and almost comforting and very easy to break.  I told them, this is how Satan catches us, but as time goes on and on, if we continue following after him, he builds an builds on those single pieces of flax until he has us bound in huge chains of rope.
I contrasted this with the way Christ works and how as we follow after Him and partake in the gift of the atonement, we become more and more free.  Through Christ, we gain freedom.  And the amazing thing is that He gives this to us freely, which is good because there is no way we could ever pay Him back.  All He asks is that we follow Him and live righteously.
So, I gave them rope candy - twizzlers pull and peals to emphasize the significance of how a small piece of rope isn't very binding, but it becomes binding when combined with other small pieces.
To it I attached a tag that said: "Remember: While Satan's Ropes Will Bind Us, Christ Will Always Set Us Free."
