What Is the Conscience?
I put my faith in Jesus Christ at the age of seventeen. I had no religious family background, nor any Biblical knowledge, and I had only been inside of a church a handful of times. But despite my lack of Christian understanding, shortly after I put my faith in Jesus, I had a strong conviction that I should read the Bible. So, I started reading. I began at the beginning, just like anyone would do with any other book. I read through Genesis and then made my way through the next few books and read the Law of Moses. The Law of Moses details all of the commands that God gave to Israel to bring order to their nation and to make them into a special people for himself. My faith was very new, and I had a strong desire to know more about God and what he wanted me to do. There are many commands that were to be obeyed by the Israelites in the Law, so when I started reading it, I saw an invitation from God to obey him.
