Did Ed Snowden do the right thing?

I think if one reads the Word of God, one will be able to tell right from wrong and therefore the will of God.  This is were it gets fuzzy for me.  I think on several occasions I have been prompted by God to do something.  When I saw my current house I knew it was mine.  I felt it in my spirit.  I had asked God to direct me to the right house.  I am more certain than ever today.

Knowing God is a life long struggle. I do not fully know God's will.  I do not think anyone can know.  All we are able to do is read scripture, pray and ask God for guidance and do our best and hope for God's blessing.  This seems to work for me.

I think we must all judge.  If you do not you will go down the wrong path.

How do you know that right now he would not?  How are you privvy to the
mind and will of God? <ducks for cover>

Judge not - lest ye be judged .. My biggest personal fear is not that the
God or the Devil would appear before me, but that I would not recognize
either one.
