Hi, everyone!

I wrote a sentence, "The Pharisees used man's words to replace God's words. This was essentially rejecting God's commandments and was a serious betrayal of God's intentions." In this context, does "serious betrayal of God's intentions" convey the same meaning with "rebellion against God's intentions"? Thanks!

    I think those two phrases mean roughly the same thing. If you betray God's intentions, you don't do what God wants you to do. If you rebel against God's intentions, you actively fight against what God intends you to do.
