A Healthy Conscience
Acts 21-23

Acts (of the Apostles) New Testament

We all have an “internal moral compass” called a conscience. It is something that God has implanted in the soul of every human being. And since God is the standard for right and wrong, and since we are created in the image and likeness of God, then we all have the capacity to choose right over wrong. A conscience allows us to feel pleasure when we do what is right, and conviction when we do what is wrong. When Paul gives his defense for being unjustly imprisoned, he starts out by saying, “…I have lived in all good conscience before God until this day” (Acts 23:1). Shouldn’t we all want to say that? In today’s teaching, Pastor Gary defines “conscience” and the different kinds of consciences that are in the Bible.
