If you do what your holy book says, will you ever have to go against your conscience?
If you answered yes consider this; we cannot arrive at what is right by doing what we think is wrong. It’s impossible. The more you ignore your conscience the more wicked you will become. You will become cold and hard; you will die on the inside. The more you obey your conscience the more alive you will become. The more you obey your conscience the better your conscience will work for you; your understanding of right and wrong will become clearer; and you will become more sensitive to the thoughts and feelings of others.

The person who ignores their conscience in order to do what they think is right has put their confidence in their own minds; they have put their trust in their own understanding. If you obey a prophet, priest, holy book or so called holy man who requires you to disobey your conscience, you have been deceived. It might sound right but is in fact wrong. Look deeper. Ask the hard questions.
Am I saying that if you obey your conscience you don’t need God? No, what I am saying is this: the more you ignore your conscience, the more you are ignoring the one who gave you your conscience—God. (2)
