What is one of the biggest lies that the devil tells? I don’t exist at all. Neither does God. This is the lie that most of the modern world believes today. It doesn’t matter what you do, because no one is in charge. There are no commandments and you can be happy doing what ever you want, when ever you want, however you want. There is no sin, because I don’t exist.
Why did Jesus need to be obedient? Wasn’t he already perfect? Could Jesus be perfect if he wasn’t obedient?
When Jesus went to the temple when he was 12 years old, who was he obedient to first? First, he was obedient to God, then because he was obedient to God, he also chose to be obedient to his earthly parents.
“Obedience is a choice. It is a choice between our own limited knowledge and power and God’s unlimited wisdom and omnipotence.” -Elder L. Tom Perry, April 2014 General Conference Address.
He made man free—and then gave him the Commandments to keep him free.” – Cecil B DeMille
