Loved this article…helps explain things I’ve been wondering about.

God truly spoke to me from this, Praise the Lord.

Thank you so kindly sir.

Thanks for this article, Jack. I see so much of myself in this because of bad choices I’ve made over the years. I’ve wondered how I could do such awful things that hurt my wife by my adulteries and yet see myself as a good Christian man the rest of the time. I have been searching my heart for a long time to find and ask God to remove the lies and anger and bitterness that is there. My question is, does God unsear a conscience that returns to him in humility and repentance? I long so much to hear his voice and to obey him and to change, but the struggle has been very hard to undo the searing that took place years ago via porn and my choosing to ignore the Lord and give in to sexual sins. I know God can do anything, but does he ever for this?

Thank you Mr. Love. I believe the best reassurance that we are indeed saved is that we do the things commanded of Christ (Matt 25:35-36) as unto Him (Mattt 25:40) as most do nothing at all for Him, and that’s a bad sign (Matt 25:41-46). I do not believe I see any Scripture that says God will “unsear” a conscience, but the fact that you are concerned about this shows me He can still reach you. Call your psator. Join the work of Christ. You will hear His voice again. Those who have reached a point of no return would not care to even be concerned as you are sir, so that is a good sign too. I will pray for God’s clarion voice to speak to you by His Spirit.

Thank you for your response and your prayers. I believe you are right about my situation. Also, I know that Jesus is a great physician and can heal even a seared heart if one is truly repentant, though there is no guarantee of such an undeserved blessing. The final thing as I have been praying and seeking the Lord about this is he talks about replacing a heart of stone with a heart of flesh for those who return to him. Certainly a hardened heart describes a seared conscience, so maybe that is a scriptural example to hold on to. Regardless, I will place myself in his hands and obey him as an act of faith and love and see what happens. Thanks again for responding.
