Some however may question, how do you name a conscience if it is not a physical matter and one cannot distinguish where it originates from? One of the two main philosophers to support that conscience is the voice of reason is Thomas Aquinas. Aquinas believed the conscience primarily to be a substance of reason; a moral guide that has been placed in us by God in order to make us more inclined to do his will here on earth. He believed that at conception or at some later stage, God gives each person a conscience to be able to discern morally right and wrong.

This presents an issue with the moral and rational reasoning behind the deeds.
During the Renaissance time period, religious beliefs and views were considered a major role in society. The conscience of those living in the time, was often being judged by God. Evil could be interpreted in ways dealing with your belief in God and what powers and laws he had for the people. Thomas More is faced with a cross roads of whether to take the route of joining the King and risk betraying God’s rules of marriage, or to take sides with the church and believe in God and respect his authority of ruler of the nations. Thomas More takes the side of the church and follows the idea that God judges the consciences of all, and if one is against God, then that person could be considered evil.

Four years after the terrorist attack on the U.S., Pipes points out that all 19 hijackers on 9/11 were Muslims stating that we’re still debating whether protecting the country or protecting civil liberties is more important. He says it does no one any good to pretend that the threat is other than what it really is, and the “real” threat to the United States is Islamic terrorism, with many other Americans feel the same way. A blog online discusses the issue of the importance on profiling Muslims with one American posting
The Divine Command Theory is the view that moral actions are those that conform to God's will. Charity, for example, is morally proper because God endorses it, and murder is wrong because God condemns it. But, where does God get these moral values? If they come from a still-higher power, he
