After a mysterious, lost night on their honeymoon, a newlywed couple finds themselves dealing with an earlier-than-planned pregnancy. People might feel like they can get away with violating a traffic law or cheating on their taxes, but God and His laws work much differently. Answer: A Yes, God knows each one of us (every person on earth) better than we know ourselves.
Answer: A Because there is only one narrow path that leads to godlikeness, and thus to His kingdom. Answer: A God permits disobedience and sin to continue until all people everywhere are at last fully convinced of God's justice, love, and mercy. Answer: A If I have had no opportunity to learn a certain Bible truth, God does not hold me accountable. Jesus says that He will call them to His true way, and His true sheep will hear and follow (John 10:16, 27). While recording everything for posterity, the husband begins to notice odd behavior in his wife that they initially write off to nerves, but, as the months pass, it becomes evident that the dark changes to her body and mind have a much more sinister origin.
God sees everything we do, hears everything we say, and He really does care about how we behave.
All will finally realize that God, by requiring obedience, is not trying to force His will upon us, but rather is trying to keep us from hurting and destroying ourselves. He promises to keep me from error and lead me safely to all truth if I: (1) pray earnestly for guidance, (2) sincerely study God's Word, and (3) follow truth as soon as I am shown. But the Bible teaches that I am responsible to God for all the light (knowledge of right) I have and all I can have!
Satan, in order to make God's requests appear unreasonable, invented the falsehood that obedience is impossible.
We must give God credit for being wise enough to require some things of us we may not understand.


He knows that all disobedience is sin and that sin brings unhappiness, tragedy, alienation from God, and eventual destruction. He promises that just as He worked a miracle to bring us the new birth, He will also continue to work needed miracles in our lives (as we gladly follow Him) until we are safe in His kingdom. Matthew 7:21-23 makes it clear that many who prophesy, cast out devils, and do many wonderful works in Christ's name will be lost but will think they are saved. While the Lord offers forgiveness for our sins, there still are deadly consequences for breaking God's law. The Bible is the map and guidebook with full instructions, warnings, and information on how to safely reach that kingdom. The sin problem is not settled until even the most cynical and hardened sinners are convinced of God's love and confess that He is just. This being true, surely it is high time to abandon all fuzziness regarding what is right or wrong. It seems so harmless to wait, but the Bible teaches that unless a person acts immediately upon light, it quickly turns to darkness.
When a person knowingly rejects light and continues in disobedience, the light eventually goes out, and he is left in total darkness. The Bible is speaking here not of one single act or sin but of a presumptuous continuation in sin and a refusal to surrender to Christ after one knows better. God does not promise eternal life to those who merely make a profession of faith or are church members or are baptized, but rather to those who do His will, which is revealed in Scripture. It will take perhaps a major catastrophe or worse to convince some, but the horrible results of sinful living will finally convince all that God is just and right. People had better stop letting their own foolish whims and egotistical notions guide them and pay attention to God's great book.
Of this group, only two (Caleb and Joshua) fully followed the Lord, and they alone entered Canaan.


Obstacles to obedience are not removed while we stand and wait; instead, they usually increase in size. No child will fully obey his parents unless he loves them, nor will he love his parents if he does not obey. Simple faith and trust in God will cause us to believe that He knows what is best for us and will never lead us in any wrong path.
Those who refuse to obey God will end up believing a lie (2 Thessalonians 2:11, 12) and thus think they are saved when instead they are lost.
It is folly for us, in our ignorance, to question God's leadership, even when we may not fully understand all His reasons. People who won't accept the plain teachings of the Bible would not be convinced by a sign either.
Freedom without obedience is like the false freedom of the drifting balloon or the driverless car. If the Bible had not been given, people would sooner or later have discovered (by trial and error) that the great principles of the Bible exist and are true. So the words of the Bible are not merely advice which we can accept or ignore without consequences. A person cannot live any way he wishes and still become godlike any more than a builder can ignore the blueprints for a house without running into trouble.
