Loss Of Conscience?

  1. God bless you guys! I have a question for you. Please help me out if you can.
    (Sorry for my english, i'm not a native speaker.) :/
    Lately i've been feeling very weird in my christian life. Besides i hunger for God. This summer i've been studying the Bible a whole lot and listening to preaches and praying and fasting. God has showed me many of His truths. Now i have a way better understanding of christianity, the trinity, and now i understand better who Jesus is. I now have a very strong christian identity, and i don't get nervous anymore seeing what's happening in the world around us.
    Yet, everytime i pray to God or speak to Him throughout the day i feel like there is a wall separating me from Him. It's like when you're trying to talk to someone through a glass wall. And also, when i sin, i don't feel guilty and most of the times i realize only later that i made sin altho i do not want to sin. And when i pray for forgiveness i don't feel that remorse or regret i should feel. Not that i like to sin or want to, because i don't. It's more like i don't have any feelings in terms of sinning.
    I've heard once that one can lose their voice of conscience. And i've also heard that it might be linked to fornication.
    Please correct me and help me finding my way back, i want to get closer and closer to God. Thank you!:)
  2. God Bless you too! :)

    Don't fret. When we first learn of the Lord it's like He's shouting, so easy to hear. As you grow, in order to help you grow more, the voice gets softer so we have to listen harder. We cannot know the "stuff" that's buried in our hearts, so as David, cry out to God, be patient and listen for His prompting, and you will have your breakthrough. God loves you VERY much and what He started He's faithful to complete in you. The Holy Spirit is here to help. Sometimes He's silent to see if you're serious. He wants to know if you'll seek Him in this momentary hide-and-seek. :D

    Hebrews 13:5 (KJV)
    [Let your] conversation [be] without covetousness; [and be] content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.

    1 Peter 5:7 (KJV)
    Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.

  3. If you had no remorse, I don't think you would be praying for forgiveness, in my humble opinion.
  4. I would simply say, strive to know more about Jesus and dwell in His word. Pray for Holy Spirit to guide you.. As you go along learning "truth" you will know what is sin, its consequences better. That would help
    Kittif and Abdicate say Amen and like this.
  5. Right. And I think all immature Christians start that way.. We all say our lives turned upside down after accepting Christ.. That is a fair statement.. But often the ship simply bounces back!! But the truth is, at the time we are saved, the anchor is laid on Christ.. Then slowly He will shift us as we grow in Him..

    My godly sorrow now and few years back are certainly different.. Not perfect, but certainly different.. I am sure every believer can vouch for this..

  6. Sometimes this comes to my mind, but this thought does not feel relieving for me inside. It is like i'm praying out of hunger for God and devotion, but still sometime it feels like as if i'm doing it as a must, not putting all my heart in it. Or i do, just i don't get touched by Him so easily like i used to. I'm confused. I just hope it's not something i've done or am doing that keeps me separated because i don't want to ever lose this stage of understanding and relationship with Him that i've reached.
  7. when reading Psalms, there are few chapter that I notice a pattern....

    At the first part: it tries to describe some kind of suffering, a longing….for salvation....

    and on the latter part, an affirmation of faith, such as this one...

    Psalm 13 King James Version (KJV)
    13 How long wilt thou forget me, O Lord? for ever? how long wilt thou hide thy face from me?
    2 How long shall I take counsel in my soul, having sorrow in my heart daily? how long shall mine enemy be exalted over me?
    3 Consider and hear me, O Lord my God: lighten mine eyes, lest I sleep the sleep of death;
    4 Lest mine enemy say, I have prevailed against him; and those that trouble me rejoice when I am moved.
    5 But I have trusted in thy mercy; my heart shall rejoice in thy salvation.
    6 I will sing unto the Lord, because he hath dealt bountifully with me.
  8. A problem for me in the past and still sometimes today is relying on an emotional feeling to tell me He is with me. Whether it's "goose bumps" during the worship service or the outpouring of the Holy Spirit while I pray, which I can't describe with words. If we rely on feelings, we can easily miss the times when He wants to work on a particular area in our lives.
