Does God use a full disclosure policy or does he hide information?

Should God, show all consequences to infractions and sins or hide them?

Ignorance of the law is no excuse?
Perhaps it is if the sinner was not fully informed of the consequences.

If the law does not show all significant consequences to a crime or infraction, is the perpetrator really making an informed choice and if not informed completely of all consequences, is he culpable and should the penalties hidden by the law maker be applied to someone who did not know those were part of the consequences?

For example, is it moral for man or God to place a $ 10.00 per mile penalty on speeders when it has only warned of a $ 5.00 posted fine?

What if one of the consequences is a great benefit to the perpetrator?
Should the perpetrator ignore that benefit for any perceived harm?
Especially if that harm is kept from him by the law maker?

The morality of your answers will condemn your God so if you even attempt to answer, so be careful.

I will be relating these question to the myth of Adam and Eve and showing how immoral God was acting within that myth as well as elsewhere in the O T.

We often use the term on earth as it is in heaven. This indicates to me that we are to emulate God as a father figure or parent and law maker.

If God can just add on any arbitrary unknown punishment to a sinner, does that mean that human laws should do the same. Secular law seems to have rejected such notions. Would you?

Huh? Everything that we ever needed to know, all that needs to be "disclosed" at this time, is provided in the Bible and/or written in our hearts. As mere mortals, we cannot handle all that God and heaven actually are.

Yet A & E became as Gods and could but you are not bright enough to. Ok.

I posed the question to see what people though of the fact that God did not inform A & E about the benefits and negative consequences of eating of the tree of knowledge and if they think A & E would have done things differently if they would have has full disclosure.

It seems that A & E were given more facts from the talking snake than from God.

He requires faith to receive information on all issues including sin and callings , but if you talk to him all the time and pray all the time during your day, and even I have heard that if you fast , the Lord will tell you more than most people close to him .......Holy Spirit is called to discern all sin and spirit who may manipulate sin on believers, so if you pray and ask for discernment and turn from this sin , Jesus will forgive all sin and send HIS Holy Spirit remove it , Holy Spirit does not forgive sin but provides the action for Jesus to redeem all sin ..... If you do not receive information about sin or God leaves you in the dark than you may have to develop your faith with him , as he wait for you to move and will bless you more .......See if God came out and told people what to do and do this and do that , than the dark spirit of this world would be all over that person, so God hold back until his Children get developed in HIS Blood and will clean them all better......
