Grace mail 7/16/18.   Calvary Church, PHX


"Blessed are those who have a tender conscience, but the stubborn are headed for serious trouble" (Proverbs 28:14).
                                   
                                   Shutting down your conscience can have dramatic effects on your emotions, your mind and your physical health.
                                   
                                   Let me ask you a kind of personal question:
                                   
                                   How's your conscience doing these days? Is it alive and healthy? Do you hear from it often? Or do you see it as a great big joy-killer, does it bug you when you want to do something you know you shouldn't do?
                                   
                                   Does your conscience keep you awake at night? Do you remember things you've done later in the day and think, "Oh, man, I shouldn't have acted that way" or "I shouldn't have said that"? Sometimes it's little things that your conscience talks to you about, other times it's big things.
                                   
                                   I remember when one of our daughters was laying down to go to bed and not being able to sleep because of something she had done earlier in the day. She was at the grocery store with me and we were looking for some corn chips and she had discovered that someone had opened a bag of them. She took a chip from the already opened bag and ate it. Her conscience wouldn't let her go to sleep that night. I was so glad her conscience was tender and she responded to it just as she should have.
                                   
                                   Many years ago a Bible teacher said: "A tender conscience is an inestimable blessing; that is, a conscience not only quick to discern what is evil, but instantly to shun it, as the yield closes itself against the mote." (Pastor Nehemiah Adams, 1806-1878)                                                                             

Jesus: For if you believed Moses, you would believe me; for he wrote of me. But if you believe not his writings, how shall you believe my words? Psalm 37:21 The wicked borrows and does not pay back, But the righteous is gracious and gives.

How can the conscience discern what is evil? That is contradictory. We need the Bible to tell us what is evil. Christian leaders have been telling us for millenia that man can’t figure that out in his own without the Bible, the guiding moral compass. What’s this conscience thing doing trying to steal God’s thunder?
"My position concerning God is that of an agnostic. I am convinced that a vivid consciousness of the primary importance of moral principles for the betterment and ennoblement of life does not need the idea of a law-giver, especially a law-giver who works on the basis of reward and punishment." Albert Einstein

Um, try reading the OP a bit slower, and with comprehension.

Um, try reading the OP a bit slower, and with comprehension. ___ Um, I read with fine lying Tomas. Its funny that whenever we disagree with you, you are stupid enough to think it is because we simply didn't read your OP carefully enough. No, we disagree with you because you are full of shit. It has absolutely nothing to do with proper reading of your OP.

Ok so quote the piece from the OP that you think supports your first post.  We can go from there.

Jesus: For if you believed Moses, you would believe me; for he wrote of me. But if you believe not his writings, how shall you believe my words? Psalm 37:21 The wicked borrows and does not pay back, But the righteous is gracious and gives.
