Conscience Deadened
Romans 2:5
But after your hardness and impenitent heart treasure up to yourself wrath against the day of wrath and revelation…

As the old historian says about the Roman armies that marched through a country burning and destroying every living thing, "they make a solitude, and call it peace," so men do with their consciences. They stifle them, forcibly silence them, somehow or other; and then when there is a dead stillness in the heart, unbroken by no voice of either approbation or blame, but doleful like the unnatural quiet of a deserted city, then they say it is peace.

(A. Maclaren, D. D.)
