Bible Term: Disobedience

Disobedience is the opposite of obedience.

In a spiritual sense, disobedience is not doing what God commands. Disobedience doesn’t cause us to lose our salvation but does cause God sorrow.

We can find out what God wants us to do by studying the Bible and through the leading of the Holy Spirit.

In the Old Testament of the Bible, there are many instances where the nations of Israel and Judah were disobedient to God. Eventually they were punished for this, but it was only for a time, after which there was a restoration.

Key verse about Disobedience: And we will be ready to punish every act of disobedience, once your obedience is complete (2 Corinthians 10:6, NIV)

A lifelong student of the Bible, Peter DeHaan, PhD, wrote the 700-page website ABibleADay.com to encourage people to explore the Bible. His main blog and numerous books urge Christians to push past the status quo and reconsider how they practice their faith in every area of their lives.
