Often in threads, a person will say they have been convicted by God not to do something ie drinking, smoking, overeating, ect. I found this definition of conviction My first thinking is that if God tells John something is bad, than shouldn't it also be bad for Mary? Or do we use the word conviction in the sense of "a strong persuasion" Now if John says he has been convicted of never riding a bike (its in Hezekiah 59:95 :tongue3 but says he would never imposed that Bible truth on Mary. Well if John is totally convinced its wrong to ride a bike, than doesn't he have a Godly duty to show Mary the pitfalls of riding a bike according to the scripture in Hezekiah? This is something I have always wondered about. What say you?
