This commandment is given in the context of dietary restriction, or the lack of them, and how this can play out in the life of a believer. It has much broader application.
The only restraint on us is the power of the Holy Spirit to convict our conscience that our actions have consequences. That's why we have guilt. We've all sinned and fallen short of the glory of God, that's why we need a savior.
Could it be that we're all walking around with the Bible as non-coding DNA in every cell of our bodies? It's within the realm of possibility in Matty's Paradigm. No one has an excuse to not believe in God. No one.
Most people choose to believe the popular science (SciPop) paradigm because they want to relegate God to irrelevant or optional, so that they can live immoral lives with no guilt or fear of judgement. It doesn't work.
Our conscience is why we experience guilt. We don't have to be told when we've done something wrong: we know. We may act like it doesn't matter but we still know that we did something wrong because of guilt.
We can all relate to the definition of guilt. We may feel guilt, a feeling of deserving blame for offenses, but the reason why we feel it is because of the fact of having committed a breach of conduct. It is a fact that we're all sinners.
We (most of us anyway) have a conscience. When we do something wrong we feel bad about it. We may even fear the consequences of what we've done, karma, coming back on us because we reap what we sow.
Our conscience is proof that the popular science (SciPop) narrative of godless existence is false. That means hell is real, but then so is heaven. The difference between heaven and hell is faith in Jesus Christ.
The soul encompasses the aspects of heart, soul and mind: our self-awareness. The mind gives us grief, sorrow and knowledge of the law: all things that require understanding.
Would you be surprised to know that the conscience is one of the two witnesses we have of the truth about God?
