DNA? IS REAL CHANGE POSSIBLE? OR ARE WE FOREVER TRAPPED TO STAY THE SAME?

By Wade Martin Hughes, Sr. Kyfingers@aol.com WE ARE IN A SERIES ON CHANGE.

I. IT MAY BE VERY POSSIBLE TO ACCUSE OR EXCUSE OUR WORDS AND

BEHAVIORS UNTIL WE SEAR THE VERY GOD CONSCIENCE WITHIN THE

HEART AND MIND.

A. WHAT IS YOUR CONSCIENCE?

It is the faculty of the human mind which is an inborn sense of right and wrong.

We operate our judgmental system of conduct and moral behavior by our personal standard

of believes by our conscience.

1 Timothy 1:19 Holding faith, and a good conscience; which some having put away concerning

faith have made shipwreck:

B. ALL HUMAN CONSCIENCE WAS PERVERTED AFTER ADAM & EVE'S CHOICES

WHICH CAUSED THE FALL...

Romans 2:15 Which show the work of the law written in their hearts, their conscience also bearing

witness, and their thoughts the mean while accusing or else excusing one another;)

C. THE TENDANCY OF FALLEN MAN IS TO DEFILE OR SEAR THE CONSCIENCE

TO EXCUSE AND JUSTIFY BEHAVIOR THAT IS NOT MORAL NOR IS IT BIBLICAL.

Titus 1:15 Unto the pure all things are pure: but unto them that are defiled and unbelieving is nothing

pure; but even their mind and conscience is defiled.

D. WE CAN SEAR OUR SPIRITUAL COMPASS UNTIL IT LOSES ALL SPIRITUAL

GUIDANCE.

1 Timothy 4:2 Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron;

SEAR: To not be able to feel, think properly. Devoid of emotion or right.

To burn and damage the surface, TO NUMB, to wither or dry up, to be scared...

E. It can be very possible to SOOTH YOUR CONSCIENCE INSTEAD OF AWAKENING IT.

We might just PRODUCE A SENCE OF SELF-SATISFACTION and proclaim eternal safety

rather than realizing the true SENCE OF WRONG and UNWORTHINESS...

F. WE CAN SEAR OUR SPIRITUAL CONSCIENCE UNTIL WE RE-DEFINE ALL MORAL AND

SPIRITUAL TRUTH.

The Bible must forever be THE STANDARD OF TRUTH...

PLUS WE NEED HONEST FAITHFUL VECHILES OF TRUTH TO RAISE THE STANDARD.

II. IS IT POSSIBLE TO ACCEPT LIES AS TRUTH? WILL WE JUSTIFY WRONG AS RIGHT...???

THE CONSCIENCE BECOMES THE MORAL COMPASS OF EVERY BELIEVER.

2 Thessalonians 2:11 And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should

believe a lie:

A. Did you hear about the millionaire that bought a huge pleasure yacht and would stay out

on the ocean with his family and friends for many days. His little son had some powerful

magnets he loved to play with. One day the lad placed two magnets on the EXPENSIVE

COMPASS used to navigate the ship. The boy left the magnets attached to the compass and

went of playing. The captain of the ship sailed true to the COMPASS, not knowing the magnets

were there. After several days the captain of the ship thought they were coming to a port and

they did not. He said to the owner, we are lost, something is wrong.

I have done everything right and we are far off course?

2 Timothy 3:4 Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God;

5 Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.

B. THE CONSCIENCE CAN BE SEARED BY LEGALISM. This can dominate to the point of
