GOD AND CONSCIENCE

A theology of conscience will make extensive use of first order Christian language about God, Christ, Spirit, sin, justification, sanctification, church and so forth, for only within the encompassing framework supplied by such language, and by the spiritual, dogmatic and moral culture which it bears, will reflection on conscience attain to a Christian determinacy.

A sign of the times that, in order to undertake an account of conscience in frankly theological terms, we can no longer proceed with the cheerful sense that our presuppositions are already established; we must instead painfully and doggedly nail each one of them in place, and only in this way win our freedom from the axioms of an intellectual culture which threaten to subvert our task. And so, in conscience we do mot relate to some Other, but to God and Father of our Lord Jesus, to the Spirit of the living God.
