our Word of the Week for this Election Day, Pastor Nathanael Mayhew discusses the word conscience. The conscience that part of the human being that God has created and given to help us distinguish from what is morally good or bad (Romans 2:14-15). A true or good conscience is not subjective and different for everyone, but given by God to reinforce what God has revealed about right and wrong in His holy law (10 Commandments). The Bible speaks of a “good conscience” and an “evil conscience” and even refers to a “weak conscience.” A good conscience functions in perfect harmony with God’s will from faith (1 Timothy 1:5). While God has given human beings a conscience to be a constant reminder of what we should or should not do, the conscience can be weakened or corrupted (1 Timothy 4:1-4; 1 Corinthians 8:7-12). If a conscience is good, it will be in accord with God’s Word and the same for everyone. But often our consciences are weakened or corrupted by sin. The real source of right and wrong is not our feelings, but God’s objective truth found in His Word. As you vote today, do so following God’s objective truth, with confidence in Him. Listen, learn and grow in your understanding of God’s Word and how it applies to our daily lives!
