Bible Truth FAQs
THE TRUTH OR ONLY FEELINGS
Men have been known to say, when confronted with the truth of God's word, "I don't care what the Bible says. I know what I feel about it, and I wouldn't trade that for all the Bibles in the world!"
It's time to realize that feelings are deceptive. Feelings are based on reception of information, whether or not the information is faulty. Consider the feelings of Jacob, who grieved for twenty years because of erroneous information that his son Joseph had been destroyed by a wild beast. Consider the feelings of Saul of Tarsus (later the Apostle Paul), who verily thought he should do many things contrary to the name of Jesus of Nazareth (Acts 26:9).
Also, let us consider the feelings of those who feel they are going to heaven without doing the will of the Heavenly Father (Matt. 1:21-23). The only way we can know God's will is through His word, the Bible. Unless our feelings are educated and founded upon the truth, bitter disappointment awaits us at the judgment. It will then be too late to correct feelings based on erroneous information and assumptions.
