Romans 2:15 - Written Upon Our DNA Bookmark

Romans 2:15

"in that they show the work of the Law written in their hearts, their conscience bearing witness and their thoughts alternately accusing or else defending them," (NASB)

"Which shew 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;)" (KJV)

"They demonstrate that God's law is written in their hearts, for their own conscience and thoughts either accuse them or tell them they are doing right." (NLT)

"Rom 2:15 They show that the work of the law is written in their hearts, as their conscience bears witness and their conflicting thoughts accuse or else defend them," (NET)

"But do this in a gentle and respectful way. Keep your conscience clear. Then if people speak against you, they will be ashamed when they see what a good life you live because you belong to Christ." 1 Peter 3:16 NLT

One can contrast the work of our conscience with the work of our fallen nature.  We know of the doctrine of "original sin."  The perpetuation of our propensity to sin from generation to generation.  Medical science finds in our chromosomes various codes that sometimes bring with it a weakness toward specific diseases, maladies or the like.  But by demonstration in life and even in the external literature of the time where phrases like "the conclave," "tribunal," "judgment of conscience," are written gives credence that even the unbeliever has the law written upon the heart, DNA, perhaps even our molecules.  We are certainly without excuse but rather betrayed by the existence of our own conscience.  The place where we try to justify our fallen actions with our fallen nature.

Dear God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, Father of my Lord Jesus Christ. Each day your Grace grows larger in realization of the fullness of my sinful nature. Thank you for the gift of your Son who makes life with you possible. I entrust to you this day, this hour, this minute knowing that a within me lies no good thing. I wish to be under your perfect yoke and burden.

"For My yoke is easy to bear, and the burden I give you is light."  Matthew 11:30 NLT
