BE OF GOOD CONSCIENCE!


HAVING A CLEAR CONSCIENCE!
WHEN I WAS YOUNG ,70 YEARS AGO WE USED TO TALK ABOUT OUR CONSCIENCE AS A GOOD ONE ON THE RIGHT SHOULDER AND BAD CONSCIENCE ON THE LEFT SHOULDE; THIS BAD WAS BUSY TALKING US TO DO EVIL AND THE GOOD CONSCIENCE TO DO GOOD.
TODAY WE ARE GOING TO LOOK AT THE BIBLE AND SEE WHAT IT SAYS ABOUT THE CONSCIENCE. THE PEOPLE WHO FOLLOW CHRIST STRIVE FOR A CLEAR CONSCIENCE ACCORDING TO THE SCRIPTURES. LET’S TURN IN OUR BIBLES TO 1 TIM.1:3-5.1 Timothy 1:3-5
King James Version
3 As I besought thee to abide still at Ephesus, when I went into Macedonia, that thou mightest charge some that they teach no other doctrine,
4 Neither give heed to fables and endless genealogies, which minister questions, rather than godly edifying which is in faith: so do.
5 Now the end of the commandment is charity out of a pure heart, and of a good conscience, and of faith unfeigned:
1 Timothy 1:18
King James Version
18 This charge I commit unto thee, son Timothy, according to the prophecies which went before on thee, that thou by them mightest war a good warfare;
1 Timothy 4:1-2
King James Version
4 Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils;
2 Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron;
THESE VERSES TELL ME TO REMAIN FAITHFUL TO THE TRUE DOCTRINE AND LISTEN NOT TO SEDUCING SPIRITS THAT WANT YOU TO LISTEN TO THEM SO THEY CAN SEAR OR DESTROY YOUR GOOD CONSCIENCE. [REMAIN FAITHFUL TO THE TRUTH OF GOD’S WORD AND KEEP DOCTRINAL PURITY AND A CLEAR CONSCIENCE.
B/ ACTS 24:10-13Acts 24:10-13
King James Version
10 Then Paul, after that the governor had beckoned unto him to speak, answered, Forasmuch as I know that thou hast been of many years a judge unto this nation, I do the more cheerfully answer for myself:
11 Because that thou mayest understand, that there are yet but twelve days since I went up to Jerusalem for to worship.
12 And they neither found me in the temple disputing with any man, neither raising up the people, neither in the synagogues, nor in the city:
13 Neither can they prove the things whereof they now accuse me.
16 And herein do I exercise myself, to have always a conscience void to offence toward God, and toward men.
HERE THE MESSAGE IS THE SAME KEEP A CLEAR CONSCIENCE AND PURIFIED DOCTRINE.
Romans 13:4-6
King James Version
4 For he is the minister of God to thee for good. But if thou do that which is evil, be afraid; for he beareth not the sword in vain: for he is the minister of God, a revenger to execute wrath upon him that doeth evil.
5 Wherefore ye must needs be subject, not only for wrath, but also for conscience sake.
6 For for this cause pay ye tribute also: for they are God’s ministers, attending continually upon this very thing.
