Good rebellion?

“I then realized there is an 'evil' rebellion, and there is a 'good' rebellion. Both, however are rebellion, and both are an affront to God's authority. Most in the church would never fall for the 'evil' rebellion. Drug abuse, organized crime, wild drinking parties are too obvious. But today many in the church could be swayed with the 'good' rebellion...Eve was [ellipsis his]. She was not tempted to be like Satan. She was tempted to be like God.”— Thus Saith the Lord?, page 102

I think this is a major problem in the church today. We settle for "good rebellion" instead of obedience...
