Written Upon Our Hearts
These sunny days are melting the lake.
Jeremiah 31:31-34 sounds like Vatican II's description of conscience. God says, "I will place my law within them and write it upon their hearts. I will be their God and they shall be my people. No longer will they have need to teach their friends and relatives how to know the Lord."
God precedes this by saying that he will make a new covenant with the people, different from the one on Sinai which they broke. This new one will not be external but internal.
This sounds like law and order morality giving way to conscience, as Kohlberg and Rohr might describe it.
