Reindorp: the unenlightened conscience

Thursday, April 12, 2018
    [Jesus:] “All this I have told you so that you will not go astray. They will put you out of the synagogue; in fact, a time is coming when anyone who kills you will think he is offering a service to God. They will do such things because they have not known the Father or me.”
    —John 16:1-3 (NIV)
    To say of an act done, “My conscience is quite clear,” sounds smug and satisfactory. It does not by any means follow that the speaker’s conscience ought to be clear. It may simply show that [it] is sadly unenlightened.
    ... G. E. Reindorp (1911-1990), Punch, v. 240, Mark Lemon, et al., Punch Publications Ltd., 1961, p. 670 (see the book)
    See also John 16:1-3; Rom. 9:1; 1 Cor. 4:4; 1 Tim. 4:2; Tit. 1:15
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, inform my conscience according to Your law.
