God Does Not Owe Us Explanation

"God is the King of the universe.  When He gives a command, He requires us to obey it. God is the Creator of all that is. When He tells any of His creatures to do something, they must do it.  God gave man the moral law and He requires that we obey it.  He owes us no explanations.  Sometimes when parents or teachers tell a child to do something, the child responds with "Why?"  We have no right to ask God why we must obey His law."
