Yes God becomes Obvious as the Unknown, beyond mind, knowledge, etc. Do you have a favorite book you can recommend on this aspect of the way?
You can't be enlightened without faith.
And the Judaic god is the only true god, this is recognized by a number of religions.
I will refrain from teaching but if you can't recognize this you are indeed a fool.
Ask any truly enlightened person if they believe and god and they will say yes.
It is inherent knowledge to the enlightened. I am sorry for your lack of faith.
Remember intellectual enlightenment is temporary, spiritual enlightenment is very rare and permanent. Do you think Buddha didn't believe in god?
Well if by obedience you mean utter surrender of the whole body-mind to the Divine by loving God completely fully, and neighbor as oneself, and so allowing for complete release of all seeking, then yes, that is one way of saying it.

How can a person judge a book, they've never even bothered to read? Yeah, ok, go ahead and say you've "read" it. Lie, like everyone else does. You didn't read it, you glanced through it. You didn't seek answers for yourself; you listened to what others told you, about the book. You read someone else's cliff notes, then said: "ah-fooey". I bet you, if you study the Bible, like you studied the facts about all the other conspiracies, you'll come to find out for yourself, everybody elses cliff notes were way off.
The Bible isn't just a book "written by man", it's a guideline of how not to get conned into the fairytale we call "life". Apparently, some of you need to read that book you call a "fairytale" because you certainly believe in the deceptions of this world; and those deceptions are causing you to live a fake lifestyle.
