Conscience: skylights vs light bulbs

This is an excellent quote by John MacArthur on how we should view our conscience:

“In other words, the conscience functions like a skylight, not a light bulb. It lets light into the soul; it does not produce its own. Its effectiveness is determined by the amount of pure light we expose it to, and by how clean we keep it. Cover it or put it in total darkness and it ceases to function.”
