There is a very popular thing for Christians to say, including myself at times. “Well you know, my conscience is clear, even if everyone says I’m wrong, my conscience is clear.” I feel I’ve done the right thing.
I am not saying there is no truth to this, there is lots of truth. Our conscience must always be clear before God. I am speaking to the person who uses this statement as a crutch as an excuse to justify their own bad attitudes, to justify their own dysfunction even when its been confronted.
Paul said in 1 Corinthians 4:4, “My conscience is clear, but that does not make me innocent, it is the Lord who judges me” Wow, ouch. Just because our conscience is clear doesn’t automatically we have done everything right.
Brings a good reminder to the exaltation of the “Christian Conscience.”
