Conscience is More Important than any Religion
One of the most profound teaching of Christ Jesus is to take up one's own cross and follow Him.
It is summarized by Christianity that teaches that everyone is a sinner.
How many times would a typical man tell lies in his life? How many times would a typical man hurt others on purpose with or without justification? How many times would a typical man neglect victims? How many times would a typical man betray others for his profit? How many times would a typical man refuse to support justice for his feeling or pride? How many times would an ordinary man silence his conscience?
But if there is somebody that is poorer than you, you are a sinner. If there is somebody that is unhappier than you, you are a sinner. Only the poorest and unhappiest man is free from sin. But there is no such a living man, since the poorest and unhappiest should die soon. Every living man has his own cross.
In this world, everyone is taught that he or she has a right to be rich and happy. But Christ Jesus never said that everyone has a right to be rich and happy. To be rich and happy means to love oneself more than anybody. But Christ Jesus said that one must love God than him or her.
So, essentially, a man has no right to be rich or happy. Therefore, this civilization of the mankind is based on wrong teaching, belief, and principle.
Indeed, a rich and happy man has a heavy cross to carry, though he would not even carry it. But, at the last judgment on him, he must face it.
In this context, conscience is more important than any religion. Because religion is invented by man but conscience is created by God. That is why there have been many non-Christians who have been saved and admitted into Heaven.
