What Is Conscience?

By   •   November 9   •   Topics:


What is conscience? God has put within each one of us something that cries aloud against us, whenever we do that which we know to be wrong. Conscience is the detective that watches the direction of our steps and decries every conscious transgression. Conscience is a vigilant eye before which each imagination, thought, and act, is held up for either censure or approval.

I believe there is no greater argument for the existence of God in the world today than conscience. There is no greater proof of the existence of a moral law and Lawgiver in the universe than this little light of the soul. It is God’s voice to the inner man. Conscience is our wisest counselor and teacher, our most faithful and most patient friend.

Prayer for the day

Thank You, Father, for my conscience which checks me and guards my actions. Help me to be alert to its promptings, through Your Holy Spirit.

    Very useful explanation.

  2. Josh McDaniel says:

    I ask for prayer because I don’t know if I have conscience anymore. It seems I’m not being rightfully directed like I used to. I’m worried.

    Any of us can do whatever we please at any time but there is a consequence ….whether we believe or not. Believers are sinners just the same as unbelievers. The difference is they are forgiven when they truly repent because they have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.

  7. Rick Wilson says:

    “YHWH God told me to write down in a book what the people are like, so that there would be a permanent record of how evil they are. They are always rebelling against YHWH God, always lying, always refusing to listen to the LORD YHWH’s teachings. They tell the prophets to keep quiet. They say, ‘Don’t talk to us about what’s right. Tell us what we want to hear. Let us keep our illusions. Get out of our way and stop blocking our path. We don’t want to hear about your holy YHWH God of Israel.”

    1. Pat Montgomery says:

      I am pleased you have acted on the voice of Our God to you. Has not the record already been written? Have we not seen through the Bible this day was coming? Are we surprised to live through this time that all is laid bare for us and we are just now listening? I have bought books to understand my Lord more fully, but they are the views of others searching. When we take three God believing people, we can get three views of the same text. Is God’s voice to you meant for me? I will have to search fully HIS BOOK first!!!! God bless.

    Believers and non-believers , alike both know when they do something wrong. Ie stealing , etc. One is convicted , by God’s Holy Spirit . They ask for forgiveness and try to overcome their sin. The non-believer does not care. They gladly continue to indulge in their sin. One day every knee will bow……
