                  1. Summary: Many Christians think conscience is the way God speaks to Christians today and so is the main guide for making moral decisions.
                    1. Christians believe God talks to them. Christians always follow the word of God. If they believe God is their conscience, they should choose to follow it.

                        1. The teachings of the Bible and the Church do not come directly from God. Conscience is God speaking directly to individuals and should be followed.

                                1. The bible contains things like the sermon of the Mount.
                                  1. It records events in the life of Jesus, so it teaches us what Jesus would do.
                                    1. The bible is authenticated by God so God would approve.

                                      1. The community of Christians.
                                        1. Church is the body of Christ.

                                                1. Authority of the Church comes from the Magesterium which will have modern ideas.
