Disobedience means breaking the rule or refuses to obey the law of the land. When we do what the law says we should not do we are disobedient. E.g. when the law say we should not commit fornication, kill, cheat, tell lies etc and we do it. God gave us his laws to obey he gave it to us inform of ordinance, commands and status. The laws reveal what God wants us to do and what he expect we should not do. Any time we do what God expects us to do; we have obeyed him and become righteous. But any time we do contrary we have disobeyed him and become sinners. A sinner is somebody who disobey God’s law (words)
