Obedience Is the Armor That Will Protect Us from Evil

Found this in the last paragraphs of an article in the January 2008 Ensign by William D. Oswald Second Counselor in the Sunday School General Presidency - Obedience: The First Law of Heaven

He quotes President Boyd K. Packer:
“By following the rules,” said President Packer, “you will never make a serious mistake … either while you are on your mission or thereafter without being warned. You will never take the wrong road, you will never go around the wrong bend, or make the wrong decision without your having been warned. That pattern is the pattern of the Latter-day Saint. You were confirmed a member of the Church, and you had conferred upon you the gift of the Holy Ghost to be a guide and a companion to you.”2

Certainly Latter-day Saints believe this is true for the prophet leading the church. Do we believe this for us leading our families? And if we do, why are we not more obedient?
