Your Conscience Is NOT the Guide!
“Unto the pure all things are pure: but unto them that are defiled and unbelieving is nothing pure; but even their mind and conscience is defiled.” Titus 1:15
Have you ever heard someone say, “Let your conscience be your guide?” Well, that is not always the best saying, because a conscience can be defiled.
A Native American who is also a Christian said this about our conscience:
“In my heart there is an arrowhead with three points to it. If I do wrong, the arrowhead turns, and cuts me. If I do wrong too much, I wear out the points and it doesn’t hurt me quite so much. But when the pain is gone, watch out!”
A person can be numb or blinded to what he has done, thereby making him oblivious to his wrongdoing. You can only let your conscience be your guide, when God guides your conscience.
