If you pick up a big stone, you will find a host of small insects under it that live in the dark. A moment later they have all disappeared having found another hiding place. People with a guilty conscience are no different. There is a way back to God. A frank confession of one’s sin will be enough (The Good Seed, 19-11-09).
And they which heard it being convicted by their own conscience went out one by one, beginning at the eldest, even unto the last; and Jesus was left alone and the woman standing in the midst. John 8:9.
