Civil disobedience is a nonviolent opposition to a law through refusal to comply with it, on grounds of conscience.
I understand why somebody might want to oppose the law. Somebody might have their own beliefs on what is right and wrong and they wouldn’t know when they're disobeying. But when you do know what you're doing, if you don’t obey a certain law set forth for you to follow, there most likely will be some kind of consequence for not following the law. You could go to jail, be put on restraint, have something taken away, etc. There are a number of other consequences that could be given to someone for disobeying a law.

Here are some examples of people who didn’t obey God’s instructions, and what happened to them in the end.

2. Nadab and Abihu were told to have fire come from a certain source Leviticus 6:12-13). But, they got the fire from a different source – not where God told them to get the fire from (Leviticus 10:1). God killed both of them (Leviticus 10:2).
3. Moses was commanded to tell the rock to pour out its water (Numbers 20:8). He did what he was told, but also hit the rock with his staff (Numbers 20:11). He couldn’t enter the Promised Land (Numbers 20:12).
