    A person can also view God's commands of not to "eat" from the attractive "candies" of sinful temptation as being cruel, and can dislike both God's law and those who say "no" to these enticing "candies." Why is this type of attitude both foolish and rebellious?


God reveals His law in the following ways:


 

And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat.

- Genesis 3:6

My son, if sinners entice thee, consent thou not.

- Proverbs 1:10

A fool despiseth his father's instruction: but he that regardeth reproof is prudent.

- Proverbs 15:5

It is better to hear the rebuke of the wise, than for a man to hear the song of fools.

- Ecclesiastes 7:5

Whoso loveth instruction loveth knowledge: but he that hateth reproof is brutish.

- Proverbs 12:I

 


How does God's revelation of His law relate to His general and special revelation (Chapter 2) and to His common and saving grace (Chapter 13)?
