Titus 1:15 15 To the pure, all things are pure, but to those who are corrupted and do not believe, nothing is pure. In fact, both their minds and consciences are corrupted. (NIV)

We’ve all been told at one time or anther to let our conscience be our guide.  Our conscience is not a dependable guide.  Our conscience is developed from how we are raised, our family values, the culture around us and what we’ve been taught to believe.  It is only when we have the Holy Spirit living in us and we have trained ourselves and fed upon the written word of God that our conscience can be of value to us.  Paul struggled with this. (Romans 7:15)   “I do not understand what I do. For what I want to do I do not do, but what I hate I do.” (NIV) Remember Paul was, in good conscience, persecuting the believers in Jesus before He met Him on the road.  His conscience was now in training to agree with the word of God.  Let us be sure we feed our conscience with the written word of God and listen to the Holy Spirit within us.
