Matters of Conscience

One of the ways God speaks to us is through our conscience—that little voice that helps us distinguish between right and wrong. Adventists are encouraged to speak up in matters of conscience, holding firmly to Christian principles in all things while also maintaining a strong commitment to freedom of religion for all people. We are a strong enough community that we can tolerate instances in which matters of conscience collide, recognizing that we are formed in part through our life experiences and will sometimes differ in our expressed values. This in no way diminishes the love and respect we have for one another.
