To be objective is to take a step backwards and see something as an outsider without emotion or prejudice.
To be subjective is to see something as it affects one or ones family or community…
Is conscience objective?
Well, it tells us what is right or wrong, whether we like it or not. And unless you are able to quell it, it keeps nagging and nagging and nagging…
However the conclusions drawn by conscience then end up being dragged through the conscious mind and compared against a set of rules we are nurtured with.
Where did our conscience come from? According to Genesis 2 it came from the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil from which Adam and Eve ate the fruit. From that point humanity knew intrinsically what was right and wrong.
What were the first actions of Adam and Eve after they ate the fruit? They clothed themselves because they were ashamed. God made them naked and innocent, but they chose to cover themselves. We all know that God is good. He created Adam and Eve out of love. He created them in His goodness. He created them naked. They chose to cover themselves. They opted to rebel against their Creator.
When Adam and Eve were ejected from the garden, what did God give them? He gave them more clothes. They could have refused them and stripped back down to being naked as an apology. They did not. They maintained that nakedness was not for them, even though God had created them that way.
Their conscience was contrary to God. It wasn’t just eating the fruit that caused their eviction. It was the persistence to rely upon what they thought they had learned from eating the fruit of the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil.
Morality, the determination of what is Good and what is Evil, created by humans is therefore not of God.
