HISTORY of Christian Theology

Derived from Latin and literally means “shared knowledge” such as an accomplice to a crime. Modern usage of this term developed out of the practice of private confession in Catholicism in the late Middle Ages. The concept of conscience was important to Luther who taught that a free conscience comes from being certain of God’s approval through faith alone, a bound Conscience is one that feels a need to perform works in a vain effort to please God, and a terrified conscience is one who displeases God through sin.
