    This is from Watchman Nee [FONT=&quot]"The Lord My Portion" devotionals.[/FONT]


    [FONT=&quot]For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as God, knowing good and evil. [/FONT]Genesis 3.5.

    To God, all actions taken outside of Him are sins. "To be like God," for instance, is an excellent desire; but to attempt to do it without listening to God's command and waiting for God's time is sinful in His sight. How often we reckon evil things as sins but good things as righteousness. God, however, reckons things differently. Instead of differentiating good and evil by appearance, He looks into the way a thing is done. No matter how excellent it may appear to the world to be, whatever is done by the believer without seeking God's will, waiting for His time, or depending on His power—such action is sinning in God's sight.

    With what might you disagree?

    Is it true that a believer that doesn't "seek God's will... is sinning in God's sight?
