Examin Sunday 24 Jan 2016

What does it mean to follow one's conscience? It does not mean that one can do whatever one likes as long as one does not feel guilty about it. A man may not commit adultery, for example, and not sin no matter how much he may claim to feel no guilt for his actions, for his behaviour is objectively wrong. To follow one's conscience, then, means that one's actions are conformed to the will of God and in accordance with his laws as he has given them to us in the teachings of his Church. And if we break them we can not claim that we have not sinned by treating our conscience as if it were some higher court of appeal than Almighty God himself.
