Oboedire oportet Deo (Acts 5:29).

We must obey God.

We are to listen to God and to obey him. Yet from various sites we are forced to do something opposite. We are being told that we are free and can do anything. According to some people we do not need to follow God's teaching. However, as disciples of Christ we know that living in such a way leads to disaster. It happened often in the past that unbelievers lost their sense of life and did terrible things. They were even able to kill others and explained it was necessary. But Christians cannot agree with such statements because they have their conscience. There the Holy Spirit speaks to them and strengthens them to obey the will of God. Consequently, they are interested in the heavenly matters and testify to what they have seen and heard from the Lord. Also they certify that God is trustworthy and gives them everything they need. In addition, the Christians have the strong hope for the eternal life.
