TOPIC: The Importance of Keeping a Good Conscience

Fight the good fight, keeping faith and a good conscience, which some have rejected and suffered shipwreck in regard to their faith.  1 Timothy 1:18-19

The dictionary defines the conscience as: “the inner sense of what is right or wrong in one’s conduct or motives.”

God gives each person a conscience, an inner guide to right and wrong.  It acts as a warning system to avoid what is sinful and an encouragement to do what is good.

In fact, the conscience is one of the ways we know God exists, as everyone everywhere knows sins like murder, rape, and stealing are wrong.  Who informed us of these objective truths?  The answer is God, who wrote these things on our hearts (Romans 2:14-16).

But our conscience is not infallible.  The Bible says it can be “seared” or “weak”.  Or it can be misinformed.  Hearing an inner voice and claiming “God told me…” is not the way He designed the conscience to function.

So how does God want us to interact with our conscience and why is it so important to keep a good conscience?  Pastor Mike Riccardi joins us this weekend on The Christian Worldview to answer these questions and more.

 if the watchman sees the sword coming and does not blow the trumpet, and the people are not warned, and the sword comes and takes any person from among them, he is taken away in his iniquity; but his blood I will require at the watchman’s hand.
