We would think that no one would be so arrogant as to reply against God. However, men were doing it in the first century, and it continues today.
The question is rhetorical. The answer is obvious. No man has any authority to argue with anything God says. After all, He is God, man isn’t!
If God commands how we are to worship Him, and He does (John 4:24), if you ignore with those commands, you are guilty of “replying against God.”
Churches and pulpits are filled to the brim and overflowing with men who are replying against God. Whether this is being done intentionally, or in sincere ignorance, makes no difference. There is no excuse for sin (John 15:22).
Today, the Bible is being heralded as antiquated and out of touch with modern society. But I ask, “How can anything be outdated when it exists in a realm where there is no time?” (cf. 1Peter 3:8). But this attitude is real and it’s causing religious leaders to write their own bibles and build their own churches based on the likes and dislikes of the majority. Do they really think they can manipulate the true God of Heaven? If they do, they are wrong. After all, “God’s word is forever settled in Heaven” (Psalm 119:89); “I will not altar that which is gone out of my lips” (Psalm 89:34).

Remember, in order to be saved and enjoy all God’s blessings (not the least of which is salvation), a person must have faith (Jn. 8:24), be willing to repent (Lk. 13:3), and after confessing Christ as Lord, the final step is water baptism (Rom. 6:3; 1 Cor. 12:13; 1 Pet. 3:20-21). Bible baptism is by immersion only (“burial,” Rom. 6:4), and once it is done, heaven puts that person “into Christ” (Gal. 3:27; Rom. 6:3). After proper baptism a person has their sins forgiven (Acts 2:38).
