The conscience is much like an automatic warning 

system within us which is interconnected to the 


highest morals we know.



These warning systems continually alert us about 


our choices.They send us signals of approval when 


the choices we make are noble and upright. 



This warning system is also set up to send out red 


alerts... regarding the ridiculous and heinous choices


 we make.

God has placed a conscience

 

within each of us. It is the voice



inside us that guides and tells 



us what we should and should 



not do. 



Conscience is an inner sense



of right and wrong to help us live 



the way we should. This moral



compass leads us to see life 



situations in an honest and



righteous light.

God’s existence is obvious, 


both throughout creation and 


in our conscience.



God has placed a conscience within each of us.


The conscience acts as a monitor and counselor,


distinguishing between what is right and what is 


wrong.



With internal nudges, our inner voice acts as an


 insanely powerful Global positioning system to


 guide the decisions we make. This moral compass


 leads us to see life situations in an honest and 


righteous light, determining which actions are 


"right" and which are "wrong."



The conscience is a system of awareness 


and/or warning to which we must conform.



Conscience is our inborn faculty, that spiritual 


instinct which clearly and quickly motivates us 


to choose right over wrong.



Conscience is the voice we 


never regret heeding to.


Our conscience teaches and enlightens us. The silent


voice of the soul recognizes and understands the 


difference between right and wrong. 


The Scriptures also calls the


 conscience the heart.


Something within the heart of every person approves


 when we do right and rebukes when we do wrong,

 

and that something is OUR CONSCIENCE.

When we are in need, God speaks to us, and 


He knows how to reach us because He speaks 


our language and knows our hearts.



Listening to our inner voice, whether it is loud


 and clear or more of a whisper, can be a great 


source of guidance when we need it most.


The wee small voice of God is essentially our 


inner voice perceiving, discerning, distilling,


 and communicating information in advance of 


our needing it.


God is all wise, the gentle voice 


of truth, and intelligence.

Our conscience perceives, detects, notices, 


observes, recognizes, and knows. Our conscience 


examines our behavior, both inner and outer, 


clearly and accurately.



Conscience is the process of listening to our 


innermost intuition of rightness... our inner voice


 of truth.

Our conscience motivates us to do what we 


know is right while discouraging us from doing 


what we know is wrong. 


In all that we do, allowing our inner voice to 


guide us can help us show up as the very best 


version of ourselves.

Our inner voice is our 


higher self… God. 


God will help us fully discern our wisdom, 


guidance, and direction. The inner voice of God


will never lead us astray. 

Humans are far from perfect, and we cannot make wise


decisions without God's guidance as well as His grace.


Conscience is defined as 


"an inner sense that 


distinguishes


between right and wrong." 

The conscience should have ultimate 


authority over all of our instincts.


The inner voice is the voice of


God speaking to us.

We can't just walk away from our conscience. 


We can disagree with it, try to destroy it, even 


corrode or petrify it, but we can never deactivate it.

According to the Scriptures, 


"A good conscience, 


desires to conduct itself 


honorably in all things."

Basically... the conscience 


monitors our thoughts, motives,



actions, and general manner 



of life.

Conscience, if we can accept


 its promptings, 


will guide us through life.

God as our Creator, has created us as moral 


beings. As such, God has equipped each of 


us with a "built in" moral conscience. 



 Every child of God has a duty, 


responsibility, to constantly shape, 


monitor, and maintain his or her 


conscience.

As we cultivate our Spiritual development... 


 this helps in the evolution of our moral conscience.

When our thoughts, feelings, 


or actions become inappropriate,


our conscience sees the truth.

 Every child of God has a duty, 


a responsibility, to constantly shape, monitor,


and maintain his or her conscience.


 The shaping or forming of our conscience


simply means educating and training it. 


We do this by learning and taking to heart 


the objective moral law, as found in Scripture.


 This shapes, forms, saturates our conscience 


in objective moral truth.


Our "judgment" must be 



properly educated in



God's Word, 



then the conscience will



approve what God approves 



and condemn what God



condemns.

If we insist on pushing past the limits


our conscience gives us...we will 



lose our ability to distinguish 



between right and wrong.

We live in a fallen world where we have all


 been infected by wrongdoings, and as a result, 


our conscience has become distorted.



If we do not listen to our conscience, it can 


become desensitized, even to the point where we


 become morally blind, swaying in moral


 darkness.

We should know that 


we are in trouble...



when, knowingly, we do the



wrong thing and it 



no longer bothers us.


 



The Bible calls this condition...



a seared conscience.




A seared conscience


 is one that is cut off, silenced, 


and is beyond feeling.


Our conscience can be weakened, dulled, 


and dimmed by the sin that we tolerate in our lives. 


When we sin, refusing to acknowledge it as such, 


it soils or defiles our conscience. 


If we understand what it is and how it functions,


it can change our lives. 

When the right and wrong choices 


conflict... in good conscience... 


we must follow the higher priority 


of honoring God by doing what


 is right and acceptable, without


question or hesitation.

True understanding 



comes from within,




not from without.

 An evil conscience is one that is so defiled,


so corrupt, it turns our values upside down,


confusing and blurring the distinction 



between right and wrong,


moral and immoral.

When tempted to do the wrong thing,


 are we listening to our conscience 


or do we just ignore it and keep going?

Conscience does not cater to


 our egocentric view of the world.


The overbearing voice of our ego can


drown out the voice of conscience...


leaving our perception of conscience


darkened and uncertain.



Then we begin to question ourselves...


'Is that conscience speaking to me, 


or is it my ego?'



Remorse spurs us to improve,


and not repeat the same mistake.


Remorse opens the door to repairing


or making amends for our wrong acts.



Remorse teaches us how to discriminate 


between the voice of ego


and the voice of conscience. 



Our God-centered, wisdom-based conscience 


can serve as a reliable moral compass


in any situation.


Our conscience is like a window. 


When it is clean... 


more light can enter into 


our hearts and lives.

Our truest guidance in the conduct of our life


comes from our own conscience


and we profit spiritually 



by becoming more able to notice


and act on its promptings.

Conscience is ultimately 


the voice of God within us.

Our conscience is a


trustworthy compass.


May we keep filling our souls



 with the Word of God each day,



so that God's Commandments 



are in our hearts and constantly in our


consciousness.
