Conscience Quotes

To pretend to a dominion over the conscience, is to usurp the prerogative of God. By the nature of things, the power of sovereigns is confined to political government. They have no right of punishment but over those who disturb the public peace. The most dangerous heresy is that of a sovereign who separates himself from part of his subjects, because they believe not according to his belief.
— King Theodoric, AD 524
The New Testament, the Church and Politics Here is a point I would like to make crystal clear. I do not believe the New Testament gives the church warrant to issue proclamations on political problems the nation may be facing, or on social issues. As a body the church has no message to the world except the message of the gospel, the good news in Jesus Christ. But as individuals, the writer [of the book of Hebrews] correctly points out, we cannot be rightly related to the God Who loves all men everywhere and not show this is some definite, practical, helpful way. There must be deep concern about those who are oppressed, troubled, and underprivileged, and a readiness to involve ourselves in some kind of help.
— Ray C. Stedman
Liberty of conscience is for those who truly fear the Lord. A fundamental task of the state is the establishment of pure religion.
— John Cotton, Puritan Clergyman (1584-1652)
But who is to decide who truly fears the Lord? The magistrate has no power to enforce religious demands. The laws of the First Table of the Ten Commandments are not regulations for a civil society or a political order. They belong to the realm of religion, not politics.
— Roger Williams, Founder of Rhode Island (1603-1682)
…we cannot afford the despair and inevitable degeneracy of no establishment at all! Therefore we shall propose Christianity itself as the established Religion of this Commonwealth…
— A reconstruction of Patrick Henry's speech to the Virginia Legislature in 1784
Who does not see that the same authority which can establish Christianity, in exclusion of all other religions, may establish with the same ease any particular sect of Christians, in exclusion of all other sects?
— "A Memorial and Remonstrance Against Religious Assessments" by James Madison to the Legislature of Virginia in 1785
