The Bible is very clear and demonstrative in explaining from God's perspective the importance of obedience. The fall of mankind began from an act of disobedience. God said not to eat of one particular tree in the Garden. Adam and Eve ate of that tree. They disobeyed God and we have paid the price ever since. Would we have done it any differently? The answer is "no." We will struggle with our obedience to God until we see Him face to face. At that point, we will all wish that we had obeyed His every Word.
