There’s a fundamental shift that is happening today. It used to be that when you did something wrong, your conscience guided you. Google defines our conscience as, “an inner feeling or voice viewed as acting as a guide to the rightness or wrongness of one’s behavior.” The Bible talks of when a conscience is seared our ability to rightly discern what is good and bad, right or wrong, moral and immoral are compromised. The effects of this happening are catastrophic both for individuals and our culture at large. In a time where many don’t want to call any behavior right or wrong, this can only lead to chaos.
God gave us His Word, the Bible, to be the guide for every aspect of life and culture. It is Truth. Jesus said that He was the way, the truth, and the life and that no man comes to the Father except through Him. The reason mankind can’t have access to the Father God except through Jesus is because of sin. It is sin that separates us from a Holy God. This is one thing that sets Christianity apart from other religions–what do you do with a sinful heart?
