"Their conscience also bearing witness..."
Text: Romans 2:15
THE EXISTENCE OF THE CONSCIENCE
The Scriptures teach that man has a conscience. The following writers of the New Testament wrote about the conscience:-
1. The apostle John
“Then those who heard it, being convicted by their conscience,
went out one by one, beginning with the oldest even to the last.”
2. The apostle Paul
“I tell the truth in Christ, I am not lying, my conscience also bearing me witness in the Holy Spirit.” Romans 9:1
3. The apostle Peter
“For this is commendable, if because of conscience toward God one endures grief, suffering wrongfully.” 1 Peter 2:19
THE TESTIMONY OF THE CONSCIENCE
While we may not be able to precisely locate the exact location of the conscience, we do know that it does exist. One of the functions of the conscience is to bear testimony to our heart.
“Who show the work of the law written in their hearts,
their conscience also bearing witness, and between themselves
their thoughts accusing or else excusing them”
