One of the most difficult concepts for a new Christian is learning how to think about his conscience. It is God's alarm system that He installed in our hearts to help keep us from sin. Unfortunately, the conscience can be damaged by sin (turning it off) and also be really bad preaching (making it go off at the wrong times).
