“God’s law is written in their hearts, for their own conscience and thoughts either accuse them or tell them they are doing right” (Romans 2:15).
Read 10 quotes from Billy Graham about the significance of our conscience:
God speaks to us through our conscience. This may be a “still small voice” that will not let us go until we do what we know is right… we must never silence that inner voice—[but] check what we think it is saying against the Scriptures.
Conscience is the detective that watches the direction of our steps and decries every conscious transgression.
Conscience is a vigilant eye before which each imagination, thought, and act is held up for either censure or approval… There is no greater proof of the existence of a moral law and Lawgiver in the universe than this little light of the soul. It is God’s voice to the inner man.
Do not be content to skim through a chapter [of the Bible] merely to satisfy your conscience. Hide the Word of God in your heart.
God does communicate with those who are willing to obey Him. He penetrates the dark silence with free, life-giving discoveries in nature, the human conscience, Scripture, and the Person of Jesus Christ.
Conscience is our wisest counselor and teacher, our most faithful and most patient friend.
You will never know the peace with God, peace of conscience, peace of mind, and peace of soul until you stand at the foot of the cross and identify yourself with Christ by faith… this is peace with God.
Christ can rid you of inner conflict. Man without God is always torn between two urges. His nature prompts him to do wrong, and his conscience urges him to do right.
In your own mind-darkened, will-paralyzed, conscience-dulled soul, God can make the light penetrate and turn the darkness of your own life into day, if you will let Him.
We’ve tried calling sin “errors” or “mistakes” or “poor judgement,” but sin itself has stayed the same. No matter how we try to salve our conscience, we’ve known all along that men are still sinners; and the results of sin are still disease, disappointment, disillusionment, despair, and death.
