Excerpt from The Mosaic Manifesto, or the Ten Commandments Simply Explained for Children and Converts
Men are able to know, and serve, and love God. They do not follow laws blindly like stones and plants. And. They have special laws from God. When Cain killed Abel he ran away terrified. Why? His con science reproached him and would not give him peace. Conscience is the Voice of God which speaks within the soul. It reproaches and blames even the pagan savages, when they steal and try to hide themselves. It reproaches the boy who is disrespectful to his father. It says to a man, Don't do it. Don't steal that money. It is not yours. Do not say that immodest word. It is wrong. Conscience tells us that we must do some things, and that we ought not to do other things; and after our actions, it gives us peace, or makes us un happy.
Conscience is the Voice of God. It is a natural law which God has put in every soul. And our thoughts, and words, and actions should obey conscience or this natural law. This law of conscience is called a moral law; because it regulates our conduct or morals.
