Conscience and Intuition – A PinPoint Soul-Logical Understanding – On Conscience and Intuition
On the Conscience in Unbelievers
No matter what anyone says, the Scriptures tell us that all unbelievers also have a conscience. “They show that the essential requirements of the Law of righteousness are written in their hearts and are operating there, with which their consciences (sense of right and wrong) also bear witness; and their [moral] decisions (their arguments of reason, their condemning or approving thoughts) will accuse or perhaps defend and excuse [them].” (Romans 2:15 AMP) Elsewhere we read, “Unto the pure all things are pure: but unto them that are defiled and unbelieving is nothing pure; but even their mind and conscience is defiled.”(Titus 1:15) Having been defiled requires something beneficial to have become compromised. The element of suggestive doubting thoughts which are entertained in a reasoning mind will reason away the very clear message of the law of love which is hard wired into man’s conscience. Continuous rejection of truth builds and develops habits of ignoring. The law of love is in no way to be confused with the Person of Love, for only the Person of Love can fulfill the law of love. But this does not indicate that mankind has ever become so depraved and deprived that even this law of love has been removed from him; it is static and always present – it may be rejected but the knowledge of truth and love is ever present within man. This, to me, is sufficient proof that we must actively resist thoughts that want us to believe otherwise. When we resist the law of love our own dignity is also defiled and not just the dignity of others. By rejecting adherence to the law of love, we actually withhold mental healing and keep the equal opportunity to experience complete freedom in God’s will away from our self. By not entering into the law of love we keep a slave actively enslaved to sin. Dignity of a human being requires that we abolish slavery. By utilizing this embedded law of rightness and love, even an unbeliever is able to determine what kind of moral boundaries need to be set and how moral values are come by.
On the Conscience in Believers
The conscience of an unbeliever and a believer contains the same law of moral rightness and love. All have been given this body of knowledge. No person is able to claim ignorance or inability to recognize this inherent law of love.
With Jesus, the Son of God and His Holy Spirit dwelling within my spirit, I have the entire Law of God written on my heart; upon my conscience in dynamic (live) reality. These recorded words of God’s Love Law from before my becoming a believer are now made exuberantly alive and are no longer just a recording or letters of the law so to speak. Jesus, dwelling within the believer, is the righteousness that has fulfilled the moral law of rightness and love and therefore when the Holy Spirit moves into our spirit we have the Spirit of Christ in us. Jesus is the dynamic fulfiller of His own commands. God becomes our righteous good because He alone is the right being of good. “He did this so that we could be the kind of people that the law demands that we be [the law’s righteous/just requirements would be fulfilled in us]. Now we do not live [walk; life’s journey] following our sinful selves [sinful nature; flesh], but following the Spirit.” (Romans 8:4 EXB)
When we personally live within the morally right boundaries we agree with God as to the value of life and the personal dignity He has ascribed to the self in our soul. When we help others to not cross the boundary lines that determine personal dignity, we become teachers who God uses to keep the tide of un-rightness at bay. We thus help others to gain a sense of what other people’s lives are to be treated like. Should we, when we hear conversations where criticism and judgments of other persons take place we permit the diminishment of their dignity. We permit others to esteem their subject to be considered as having less value. The same goes for those who laugh at other’s disabilities and handicaps or who stand by idly when another person is being bullied or made to feel inferior by another person’s conversations or actions.
“How can a young person live a clean life
By carefully reading the map of your Word
I’m single-minded in pursuit of you;
don’t let me miss the road signs you’ve posted.
I’ve banked your promises in the vault of my heart
so I won’t sin myself bankrupt.
Be blessed, God;
train me in your ways of wise living.”
(Psalm 119:11 MSG)
My prayer, “Help me Oh Lord to set moral rightness boundaries in my personal life – boundaries I do not want to cross and the line you, Oh Lord, want me to teach others to respect and not to cross either.
