Part 7: Clearing Your Conscience
Series: Where To Find Help
Stuart Briscoe
Hebrews 9:1-14

"Conscience, in contemporary life, is a foundling. Its paternity is questioned, its existence annoying, its demands for attention and responsibility burdensome" (Carl F.H. Henry).

I. Considering the Conscience.

A. Its meaning.
1. Conscience = Lat. "con" and "scio"; Gk. "syn" and "eidenai" = "know together."

2. Consciousness = "awareness of."

3. O.T. no word, but see 2 Samuel 24:10; Psalm 32:1 5; 51:1 9.

4. N.T. appears 30 times.

B. Its role.
1. It is innate. Romans 2:14-15

2. It is universal.

3. It distinguishes right from wrong.

4. It encourages toward right, away from wrong.

5. It judges retroactively-condemning, commending.
