CONSCIENCE: The life of the society
Conscience is from the root word caution (creat awareness alert),
Concious (a state of awareness).
It’s a part of the sense (soul) or mind: a part of the brain that help regulate standard.
When people behave below some level of expectations… or “inhumane” as we see around us on daily basis.
What exactly happened…?
Don’t they have conscience?
This is what Paul was referring as dead conscience.
1 Timothy 4:2
Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron;
(What he meant is just like a skin is seared and rendered intensive)
It is not as though it was rendered insensitive; it’s just that new conciousnes has been introduced and the mind has accepted it as another standard and sees the old bas abnormal.
As a young child he/she has no conscience but picks up her sense of concious standards (conscience) from the surrounding words and observation and action.
The society is a summary of the conscience of It’s people and it is this factor that generates the essence (life) of the system.
When i talk of SYSTEM. I mean individual components of the society that combine to make the larger one work just like the human body has systems viz Digestive, circulatory etc Digestive system are compose of organs such as mouth gullets, stomach etc.
