Always let your conscience be your guide. -Jiminy Cricket
It’s good advice, so long as your conscience is properly calibrated by God’s word.
The Bible doesn’t speak a lot about the conscience – at least, not directly – but what it does tell is is that we all have one, and that apart from God’s word our consciences remain unsure.
How’s your conscience?
A clean conscience, one that stands sure in the word of God, is a great gift of God. But how do you know if your conscience is right?
Ten Commandments to the rescue!
Note: I REALLY liked this video. So much so that I did a little digging and found a few more resources – both expandments upon this short video, taking a more in-depth look at a Christian theology of the conscience. One is in written format, the other is a series of three audio podcasts. Both are long; both are excellent. And both are quite accessible- you don’t have to be a theological geek to understand them!
