The Conscience Bears Witness

What do you say to someone who says, "There's no God?" You reason with him that every building has a builder, and that every painting has a painter. Then you swing from his intellect to his conscience. You need to do this to be effective in reasoning with him because, according to Romans 8:7, his carnal mind is in a state of hostility toward God. The following verse says that his hostility is directed towards God's Moral Law. So, you must learn to speak to his conscience. Romans 2:15 tell us that the conscience "bears witness" with the Law. So, when you say, "You know it's wrong to lie and steal, don't you?" his conscience bears witness, and when conscience begins to do that, it's the first step toward an awareness of the true nature of sin, and the need for God's forgiveness. There goes another minute. Gone forever. Go share your faith while you still have time.
