Many have a knowledge of God’s ways but have chosen to pretend they know a better, more convenient path. Jeroboam's first encounter with Ahijah (1 Kings 11-14) was like a road sign on any highway. “ If you heed all that I command you, walk in My ways, and do what is right in My sight, to keep My statutes and My commandments... then I will be with you.” It was an invitation to travel on a highway of holiness. Jeroboam chose another road and made an attempt to make worship of God convenient for others rather than holy and acceptable by God. The enslavement to everything unholy cannot be covered by pretense. Romans 6:22 "But now having been set free from sin, and having become slaves of God, you have your fruit to holiness, and the end, everlasting life"
