God's Light, Women, Temptation

I once told of being tempted by women in places where I taught and traveled before. Being a married man, I'd always hear a beeping sound coming from my conscience. My conscience is conditioned by and captive to the Word of God. I thank God that He gave me the lighthouse of a sensitive conscience. I get nervous when nearing a forbidden boundary because I love and fear God. Or, as Dr. Gunzburg would say, "A person of good character will not engage in even the earliest steps that might lead to an affair." I have flaws as everyone else has, but my faith in Christ is sure and stable. I will not go against my God-given conscience, which is neither safe or honest. A great tormentor of the human soul is a guilty conscience; it's a "formidable opponent of irresponsibility" as Dr. James Dobson would put it.

"Let us draw near to God with a sincere heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled to cleanse us from a guilty conscience and having our bodies washed with pure water" (Hebrews 10: 22).

Ikaw ba yan Angelo? Biro lang. What you say is true. Nakakatorment ang isang conscience na maliwanag na guilty. It's like hell on earth.
