MANY QUESTION THE VALUE OF EXISTENCE AND WHY THEY POSSESS THE ABILITY TO KNOW RIGHT FROM WRONG THAT AFFECTS THEM IN A WAY THAT MAKES THEM FEEL BAD ABOUT DOING WHAT THEY KNOW IS WRONG. How Much Easier It Would Be For Some People If They Did Not Feel The Pain Of Compunction About The Evil That They Do. Not everybody is so beret of a sense of right and wrong that they feel the need to eradicate their conscience so they could be evil.

From personal experience, possessing a conscience means that I become convicted within myself of wrong-doing without having to go to court to be convicted by a judge.
  • Therefore you have no excuse, O man, whoever you are, when you judge another; for in passing judgment upon him you condemn yourself, because you, the judge, are doing the very same things. We know that the judgment of God rightly falls upon those who do such things. Do you suppose, O man, that when you judge those who do such things and yet do them yourself, you will escape the judgment of God? (Romans 2:1-3)
There is an assumption that consciences differ from tradition to tradition, but in reality, according to the Bible, each person has a conscience that functions in the same way and is conditional upon what we know is right to do, even though we may excuse ourselves for doing what we know is wrong to do.
  • When Gentiles who have not the law do by nature what the law requires, they are a law to themselves, even though they do not have the law. They show that what the law requires is written on their hearts, while their conscience also bears witness and their conflicting thoughts accuse or perhaps excuse them. (Romans 2:14-15)
Essentially, possessing a conscience means that we are endowed with a faculty that has the ability to notify us, from within our very own being, what is right from wrong, good from evil; but we can override it, or suppress it, by consciously refusing to acknowledge its pricks, when we are feeling compunction for having done something that we believe is a violation of another person’s right.

The Conscience Is What Distinguishes Humans From Irrational Creatures of Instinct
