Do They Have Conscience?

Sometime in our lives we did what we deemed wrong.A husband having an affair, a wife entertaining gossips and spreading them, a son addicted to drugs, a daughter jumping from one man to another,accepting bribes,etc, etc .Those are just examples but are not far from being the truth. But why we keep on doing it despite of the fact that it is wrong? Haven't we learned our lessons yet? Don't we have conscience nor we fear God anymore?

Hi Eureka! Those who do wrong do not consider that they are doing wrong things. If their minds start telling them that it is 'wrong', they may not do it. Those who do a wrong deed do not feel afraid of God because the fear of God normally would discourage a person to do a wrong thing (they people do not bother or fear about anybody, I feel). And remember, all people cannot be nice, good and sane. Some of the people may be not 'normal' or say 'average', who hold the middle path. We have no option but to face those odd people, if they are closely connected with us. It is said that if any of your nails has damaged, you will have to bear with it, you cannot severe your nail. Hope you got, what I want to convey. Have a great day! Deepak

Very well said, dear.. I do understand what you wanted to convey here. What I DO NOT UNDERSTAND is when they do admit that what they did was wrong but still they do it again and again. Unfortunately, some of these people claim that they fear God and even served His army during early days. Sadly enough, I get to think that they are only using God to make their names and reputation seemingly righteous when they aren't really.

If they continue to do the 'wrong' even after admission, it means that their admission is an eye-wash (false admission). They just show to others that they are admitting that they are doing some wrong or did wrong but in hearts of their heart they say to themselves, "OH! I will continue to do, what I feel like, what my heart says, others do not understand me"

It goes back to the reason for the season, that "God gave his only son so that everyone who believes could be saved..." as people we live as sinners and stray. Thank God for his mercy, grace, patience to call us back to him....

Yes, humans are sinners and weak. . It is expected of us to fall and sin against God and man. True, thank God for His mercy and undying love that we still have a chance to be with our heavenly Father despite of our sinful nature. Amen to that!
