Not necessarily. There are and have been thousands of cults which prove that
man is allowed certain sovereign freewill to disobey as he chooses with little
penalty until the end of days! Life is a sifting process which waits for the harvest.

which modern ones lack. Yet, despite this... and despite the fact that one can only

Just appreciate them for what they are; and be thankful...
