Mr O, I very much need to talk to you about my conscience.

Well, that’s a pretty big subject. What do you know so far? And what is driving this sense of urgency?

I know that there is something inside me that tells me what is right and wrong and urges me to do right. I know that when I disobey it I feel guilty, and when I obey it I get a sense of relief. I get what we call ‘a clear conscience’.

All that sounds healthy. So where’s your problem?  

I know from the Bible that my conscience can’t be a perfect judge. Sin has affected it, just as it has affected every other part of human nature. Seeing that it is obviously imperfect, how do I know when I should obey it and when I shouldn’t?
