St Paul on the conscience

St Paul

·         Conscience judges us

·         Even those who do not believe in God or who are non-religious have a conscience as it is written on our hearts

·         Fallible – can be wrong

·         Because of this, the conscience is a general inclination that does not guarantee correct knowledge of what is right and wrong

·         Some people are mistakenly informed by their conscience

·         A mistaken conscience is associated with lack of knowledge – we must inform it with the truth

·         As conscience can be mistaken, we can still be judged for our actions even if we believe them to be right

·         The conscience cannot be God’s voice within us
