"[Jesus] said to
them, 'He who is without sin among you, let him throw a
stone at her first....Then those who heard it, being convicted by their conscience, went out one by one."
"I myself always strive to have a conscience without
offense toward God and men."
"I tell the truth in Christ, I am not lying, my conscience
also bearing me witness in the Holy Spirit..."
"For our boasting is this:
the testimony of our conscience that we conducted ourselves
in the world in simplicity and godly sincerity, not
with fleshly wisdom but by the grace of God, and more
abundantly toward you."
"...we have renounced the hidden things of shame, not
walking in craftiness nor handling the word of God
deceitfully, but by manifestation of the truth commending
ourselves to every manís conscience in the sight of God.
But even if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled to those
who are perishing, whose minds the god of this age
has blinded, who do not believe, lest the light of the
gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God,
should shine on them. For we do not preach ourselves,
but Christ Jesus the Lord, and ourselves your
bondservants for Jesusí sake.
"For it is the God who
commanded light to shine out of darkness, who has shone
in our hearts to give the light of the knowledge of the
glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ."
"...the purpose of the
commandment is love from a pure heart, from a good
conscience, and from sincere faith, from which some,
having strayed, have turned aside to idle talk, desiring to be teachers of the law, understanding neither
what they say nor the things which they affirm."
"...according to the prophecies previously made concerning you,
that by them you may wage the good warfare, having
faith and a good conscience, which some having
1 Timothy 1:18-19
"Now the Spirit expressly says that in latter times some
will depart from the faith, giving heed to deceiving spirits
and doctrines of demons, speaking lies in
hypocrisy, having their own conscience seared..."
"I thank God, whom I serve with a pure conscience, as my forefathers
did, as without ceasing I remember you in my prayers night
2 Timothy 1:3-4
"...how much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the
eternal Spirit offered Himself without spot to God, cleanse your conscience from dead works to
serve the living God?"
"...let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance
of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil
conscience and our bodies washed with pure water. Let
us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering,
for He who promised is faithful. And let us consider
one another in order to stir up love and good works, not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as is
the manner of some, but exhorting one another, and so
much the more as you see he Day approaching."
"Pray for us; for we are confident that we have a good
conscience, in all things desiring to live honorably."
"...this is commendable, if because of conscience toward God
one endures grief, suffering wrongfully. For what
credit is it if, when you are beaten for your faults, you
take it patiently? But when you do good and suffer, if you
take it patiently, this is commendable before God. For to this you were called, because Christ also suffered forus, leaving
us an example, that you should follow His steps."
"...even if you should suffer for
righteousnessí sake, you are blessed. 'And do not be afraid
of their threats, nor be troubled.' But
'sanctify 'the Lord God in your hearts, and always 'be
ready to give a defense to everyone who asks you a reason
for the 'hope that is in you, with meekness and fear; having a good conscience,
that when they defame you as evildoers, those who revile
your good conduct in Christ may be ashamed."
