I understand how more knowledge can create better choices/decisions, but there are other ways.you dont have that got caught in the cookie jar feeling
The more knowledge we have of the Word of God the more guiding we have...
Reading scripture in 1 Cor 11:1 we read: Be ye followers of me (Paul), even as I also am of Christ.Having the Holy Spirit within you, how do you know you are doing the right thing?
Much of Paul's gospel is in keeping the faith. This last verse points to having faith in what is revealed to our mind via the Spirit of Truth (Holy Spirit), is it not?...
Php 3:9 And be found in him, not having mine own righteousness, which is of the law, but that which is through the faith of Christ, the righteousness which is of God by faith:
That is a good point, and much can be determined by what is the right thing to do. However, I feel that conscience is largely referring to what has already been learnt and or even passed on in on's culture, traditions, rules and laws. I think conscience is a bit lacking when it comes to the finer subtleties which are not so obviously based on fear, guilt, remorse, shame, etc. Sometimes we have to make a decision, or even not to make a decision which comes to mind without knowing why at the present time. Almost a premonition of sorts. Such as waiting instead of initiating, where the later would have been the wrong thing to do at the time.God gave me a conscience.
So while in faith, and by those in faith, there is not right or wrong due to acceptance. Only those not in faith see a division between right and wrong due to resistance. Accepting God's-will as opposed to resisting God's-will for us in all things....although I have always been able to see in retrospect than even the bad decision served a purpose).
This sounds good...So while in faith, and by those in faith, there is not right or wrong due to acceptance. Only those not in faith see a division between right and wrong due to resistance. Accepting God's-will as opposed to resisting God's-will for us in all things.
