Our conscience informs us on such issues as how we dress, whether or not we celebrate certain holidays, how much time we spend on the computer or watching TV, what we do for a Bible reading routine, our choice to speed or not to speed on the freeway, our education choices, whether or not we vaccinate, what we believe about things like abortion, embryo adoption, in vitro fertilization, sex before marriage, homosexuality, and on and on. But how do we know our conscience is functioning accurately?

On the surface it appears that you are just like everyone else. Playing with your own beach ball. A nice enough beach ball. But they don’t know that your real beach ball is under your derriere. You have to struggle to keep it under there. It wants to come to the surface, and you have to keep wiggling and finagling to keep it down. You can’t swim with freedom because if you did, your beach ball would do what it wants to do—what Reality says it should do—and bounce up and out. It would be exposed for all to see. How embarrassing. You can’t have that.
