Too often we see a foe within when it is in fact a friend. It is enemies we seek to kill. We too easily censor our conscience while it is attempting to censure us.
Christian's have become adept lawyers, even purple cloaked Pharisees in our self-justification of sin.
It is painful to learn and then own our sins at first, because we have become skilled self-defense solicitors.
It is only after much practice and humbling of self, that we discover our consciences have come alive in a whole new way, and are a huge help in learning how to live truthfully.
hold on to faith and a good conscience, which some have rejected and so have suffered shipwreck with regard to the faith (1 Tim 1:19)
No-one with a seared conscience can live with truth.
No-one with a healthy conscience can live with sin.
