CST has been described as the intersection between the Christian conscience and the real world. This is an interesting way of speaking: it points out the truth that conscience is not determined wholly by worldly conditions, but at the same time that it ought to be connected to these conditions in some fashion. This connection, which forms the conscience with respect to real life conditions, is represented by CST. We are therefore justified in pausing to elaborate on the proper notion of the conscience, although this may appear at first to be an unnecessary digression.
